Please be advised that the Jan 23 story headlined "Kremlin envoy says Russia can do no more for Assad," which ran at 12:40 p.m. ET, is wrong and withdrawn. The story contained a quote which a Kremlin envoy made some weeks ago and stated erroneously that he said this on Monday.

A subsequent story headlined "UPDATE 1-Russia's support 'arsenal' for Assad exhausted-Kremlin aide," which ran at 1:44 p.m. ET, is also withdrawn as it was based on the same quote.

There will be no substitute story.
