The ruthless atrocity displayed by all sides in the Syrian conflict is going on the same as always, despite Russia's intervention on behalf of President Assad. Syrian Air Force helicopters are still dropping so-called 'barrel bombs' on civilian targets indiscriminately.
Here's a video clip of a Syrian Mil Mi-24 attack helicopter dropping two barrel bombs on Darayya earlier this week.
It's claimed that twelve bombs hit the town in a single day, causing numerous civilian casualties.
I don't think we should be supporting any side in the Syrian conflict. I suspect they're all as bad as one another from a civil and human rights perspective.
