US government says Russia 'morally bankrupt' over Syria

It comes after Turkey intercepted a Syria-bound plane which was reportedly carrying Russian radar equipment.

US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland accepted the aircraft was carrying parts legally, but said the policy was "still morally bankrupt".
