The military situation in Syria: the Kurds accused Russia of attacking Turkey

January 20 The Turkish army launched a military campaign against the Kurdish armed forces. Ground operations were preceded by massive artillery strikes and air attacks.

A day earlier, there were reports of the withdrawal of the Russian group of troops from Afrin. As specified in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, these measures were taken to ensure the safety of the Russian military, located in the area. The defense department shifted all responsibility for the military action of the Turkish army to the United States, justifying it with uncontrolled deliveries of the modern Americans weapons the Kurds.

The Kurds themselves accused Russia of treason and breach of contract, without specifying what was going on. They said that Moscow would be directly responsible for the deaths of civilians in Kurdish settlements.

These statements were made against the background of the refusal of the Kurdish leadership of Russia's proposals to allow the official Syrian authorities to return to the Afrin.

    In any case, the Turks could not be allowed into Syria. And the fact that they could not agree with the Kurds, I always say, Lavrov resigned!
