Kremlin accuses US of 'betraying' Kurds

The United States has "abandoned" and "betrayed" the Kurds, leaving them at the mercy of Turkey after years of being their ally, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday.

According to the official, if the Kurdish militia does not leave the border zone, it would leave no choice to Syrian border guards and the Russian forces but to withdraw too. This would put the remaining Kurdish formations in jeopardy.

Yesterday, Russia agreed with Turkey to create a 30 kilometer-wide safe zone in Syria at the border with Turkey starting from midnight tonight. The area will host Syrian and Russian military police which will be tasked with making sure all Kurdish YPG forces leave the area.
