Russian Contribution in Syria

The other day Josh Earnest, press secretary of the White House said at his press briefing:
... We would welcome Russia’s constructive contribution to the broader international coalition that’s been formed to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL. Russia has declined to make that constructive contribution thus far.
The very same day the Sputnik brought some news from Moscow about Syria:
"Over the past day, Su-24, Su-24M and Su-25SM aircraft completed 88 sorties on 86 terrorist infrastructure positions in the Raqqa, Hama, Idlib, Latakia, and Aleppo regions," [Russian Defense] ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov told reporters.
The targets included IS command posts, weapon storage facilities, and sites where the group manufactured explosives, he said.
Intercepted talks between Islamic State militants in Syria indicate that parts of the group are ready to leave the combat zone in Syria due to acute weapon shortages, Konashenkov went on to say.
There are about 30 Russian aircrafts deployed in Syria; 88 sorties a day mean our pilots do quite a job.

And... You know what? It seems it is in vain that the White House is waiting for Russia's constructive contribution in Syria.

Because instead of constructive Russia makes quite a destructive contribution.

Exactly what the IS deserves and the world needs.
