Russia on Saturday expressed regret that the United Nations Security Council rejected its bid to halt Turkish military actions in Syria and vowed to continue supporting government forces against "terrorists." Western powers on Friday turned down a Russian draft resolution calling for an immediate end to cross-border shelling and plans, supported by Turkey, for foreign ground intervention in Syria. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov underlined that Russia is set to continue its support for President Bashar al-Assad's ground offensive.
