If the U.S. won't fight terrorists in Syria, it should stop getting in the way, said Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry.

Konashenkov was responding to the U.S. State Department's calls to other countries to deny port access to Russian oil tankers heading to Syria.
