Records show Russia printing money for Syria

There is evidence that Russia has been pumping billions of dollars into Syria.

    New evidence has emerged that Russia could be backing Syria with more than just political support.

    Documents appear to show that Russia is printing money for President Bashar al-Assad, helping keep the economy afloat after nearly two years of fighting.
