MOSCOW - Russia accused Turkey on Monday of assisting "fresh jihadi groups and armed mercenaries" to penetrate Syria illegally to replenish the battle-battered detachments of Islamic State and other terrorist organizations.

"Moscow expresses its most serious concern about the aggressive actions by the Turkish authorities regarding the neighboring state," Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
