Employees of the Syrian centre for monitoring human rights, located in London, argue that in the conflict zone this week killed at least 26 Syrians and nine other Russians.

Four Russian soldiers have been killed by militants in Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor province, the defence ministry said on Sunday.

"Two Russian military adviser who ran the fire of the Syrian battery, died on the spot".

The Russian Defense Ministry is claiming four Russian troops were killed in the incident.

The remaining 26 were all Syrian troops, he told AFP. "Five more servicemen were injured and were taken to the hospital immediately", the statement reads.

Forty-three of the attacking militants were killed and six vehicles were destroyed, the ministry said.

It confirmed Russian military advisers were present during Wednesday's attack and were among those killed.

Russian Federation has had an active military role in Syria in an attempt to drive out foreign-backed militants from the Arab country.

Russian Federation entered the Syria conflict in September 2015, offering support to Damascus which changed the course of the war, allowing government troops to retake more than half the country from rebels and IS militants.

The AFP also cited the Russian defence ministry's statement which said 92 Russian soldiers have been killed in Syria since Moscow entered the country's unending civil war in September 2015.

Russian Federation has lost about 90 personnel in the civil war.

On May 21, the General Command of the Syrian Army and Armed Forces announced in a statement that complete security was restored to Damascus and its countryside after al-Hajar al-Aswad district and al-Yarmouk camp had been totally purged of Daesh terrorists.

The very best casualties have been in March, when a transport airplane crashed at Hmeimim airbase the place Moscow's airforce is predicated, killing all 39 individuals on board.
