on social media

A video statement from a group calling itself the “Hawks
Special Operations Battalion…a division of the Military
Leadership of Damascus City and Province”, gave the name of the
general as Vladimir Petrovich Kochyev. The video, sent to
Reuters, showed what the rebels said was a copy of his ID, as
issued by the Syrian military.

The same group claimed responsibility for the assassination
of four of President Bashar al-Assad’s top lieutenants in
Damascus last month.

There was no immediate comment from the Russian authorities.
