The outgoing United States presidential administration seems to be trying to ruin Moscow-Washington relations for years to come, Russian journalist and commentator Alexander Khrolenko wrote in a piece for RIA Novosti.

'The Same Old Story' One the main items on this plan is a decision to resume weapons supplies to Syrian rebel groups fighting against President Bashar Assad. © AFP 2016/ LEONHARD FOEGER / POOL Lavrov Warns Kerry US Arms Supplies to Syrian Militants May Lead to New Bloodshed On December 27, Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov in a phone conversation with his US counterpart John Kerry said: "The decision to supply weapons to anti-government rebel forces in Syria risks resulting in a new escalation in Syria and new casualties in the conflict." The same day, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova commented: "As for US arms supplies to Syria, we understand who will receive those weapons. And this is not the Syrian Army. Today you supply MANPADS to moderate rebels, tomorrow it turns out that they are terrorists. The same old story." Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) are a threat not only to Russian aviation operating in Syria. Someday, those weapons could be also used against US forces.
