The American coalition against ISIS has only recently started to openly report on their activities

Summary of Disinformation

The information department of the Russian Defense Ministry and the General Staff have practically daily informed the public after almost every missile/bomb attack on the terrorists in Syria. The American coalition against ISIS also started to inform about eight months ago, they  provide a summary. Of course, the difference is fundamental. They [do it] from time to time, but we [do it] on a daily basis.

Disproof

The U.S.-led coalition’s mission against Islamic State, called the Combined Joint Task Force “Operation Inherent Resolve,” started releasing information on every airstrike in January 1, 2015 http://www.inherentresolve.mil/Portals/14/Documents/Strike%20Releases/2015/01January/1%20Jan%20Strike%20Release.pdf?ver=2017-01-13-131049-843, not “eight months ago,” and the reports are as detailed as it gets -- not “summaries,” as Gerasimov claims.

The coalition's “Strike Release” reports have been issued and published on a daily basis, not “from time to time,” as Gerasimov says. Every day of “Operation Inherent Resolve” since January 2015 to the present has been accounted for transparently, and the reports are available to the public. http://www.inherentresolve.mil/News/Strike-Releases/.
