MADRID - Russia is escalating Syria's civil war by targeting the moderate opposition, US Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Monday, comparing Moscow's effort to bolster Syrian President Bashar Assad to tethering itself to a sinking ship.

"By taking military action in Syria against moderate groups targets, Russia has escalated the civil war," Carter said in a speech during a trip to Spain.
