According to the spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry, most of the opposition supported by the US is actually an integral part of al-Nusra Front.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The United States must publicly admit that most of the opposition it supports in Syria is an integral part of al-Nusra Front militant group, the Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Tuesday.

"Is it not time for our US partners to publicly admit that almost all of the ‘opposition’ it nurtures and controls in Syria is an integral part of one ‘umbrella brand’ — al-Qaeda – al-Nusra Front," Konashenkov said.
