RT News - February 13, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

The Syrian Army - supported by Russian air power - is now reportedly just 20 kilometres away from the ISIL-held Syrian city of Palmyra - as evidence surfaces of the terrorists wreaking more destruction on the ancient city. RT speaks to the aunt of the drowned Syrian boy, who became a symbol of the refugees' plight. And she has a strong message to deliver. NATO claims there's been a sharp rise in disinformation from Russia - and lists dozens of myths the country apparently spreads, to discredit the alliance.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
