Igor Konashenkov: Humanitarian catastrophe reigns in US-controlled ATS territories

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov commented on the emerging situation in Syria. According to the Major General of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the most difficult situation is in those Syrian territories that are controlled by the United States of America and the militants under its control. We are talking particularly about Raqqa, which was subjected to carpet bombing by the American coalition, in which there is a real humanitarian catastrophe: the water supply system has not yet been restored, there is no medical care, hundreds of corpses of the dead have not been removed from under the rubble. areas of territories.

News agency TASS quotes a statement by Major General Igor Konashenkov:
Today, the most difficult situation for the civilian population of Syria is in those areas that are controlled by the US-led coalition and troops of the armed opposition under its control. After loud statements about liberation from ISIS (* banned in the Russian Federation), these areas turned into “black holes”, the situation in which is completely opaque neither for the Syrian government, nor for international observers. Moreover, these areas turned into recreation areas for militants, where yesterday’s gangsters, who replaced the ISIL black flags * with the banners of the “oppositionists”, are being treated, gaining strength and re-equipping in order to terrorize the civilian population.

According to Igor Konashenkov, the militants forcibly hold around 60 thousands of Syrians in the Er-Rukban camp to actually have a living shield behind which the training of new terrorist units is being carried out.

Igor Konashenkov:
The camp has a high incidence rate, including fatal. At the same time, 20 medical volunteers from Jordan present in the camp only in exceptional cases and with the permission of the militants, take seriously ill patients to the nearest hospital. Humanitarian convoys and evacuation of people in need of treatment to Damascus medical facilities could improve the situation, as is done for seriously ill residents of Eastern Guta.

According to Igor Konashenkov, the admission of international humanitarian convoys to Rakka is necessary. The city needs mine clearance, as thousands of unexploded mines and shells remain in the ruins of Raqqah, as a result of the detonation of which people are dying every day, trying to arrange at least some life on the ruins.

Recall that earlier, Washington stated that the International Red Cross and Crescent missions have nothing to do in Rakka, since "there is no humanitarian catastrophe there."

    American lawlessness will continue as long as those in the UN Security Council and the organization themselves are seated, whose destiny is to look into the mouth of the United States and wag their tail. There is another option when Americans quickly sharpen their skis home - a good blow to the teeth with the addition of a kick.

    Why didn’t you expel the United States from Syria with Syrian hands? Why did you agree with the Yankees, dividing Syria into zones of responsibility? Why did you enter this country beaten by the civil war for political games? ??

    So it seems like terrorists were almost over there long ago ?! - It was not necessary to leave, there is still ironing and ironing, and the command of the Syrian army, you need to take it directly into your own hands.

    What Washington said is natural.
    Another thing bothers me.
    And why do the representatives of the RF Ministry of Defense come up with purely peaceful questions that are not related to the activities of the RF Armed Forces?
    This is the prerogative of the Foreign Ministry.
    The business of the military is to fight. Their business is to destroy the villains.
    Or help destroy them.
    The monument to Soviet soldiers in Treptower Park, of course, clearly demonstrated the humanism of our soldiers.
    But there the situation was different.
    What about Syria?
    Yes. By the way.
    But we see the gratitude of the Poles, Romanians, Hungarians, Czechs and Slovak for our given lives?
    For their "liberation from the brown plague"?
    In less than 10 years, as many will say - did we call you?
    Did we ask you?
    We were well with ISIS!
    And you so ruined everything.

    But the Americans profit from the 2nd world raped.
    And material.
    And moral.
    And the British too.
    Dresden bombed to the foundations?
    And now all of Germany considers Americans the closest friends.
    Beat the Japanese with a little atomic bombs?
    And the Japanese are delighted with the Americans.

    The British made the Chinese drug addicts (opium wars) and Indian weavers cut off their fingers (removed competitors weavers)?
    And the Indians with the Chinese happily rush into the arms of the Anglo-Saxons.

    And we climb and climb with humanism.

      I agree with the author. But that is probably why we are Russians, and therefore they do not respect us.

    5: 9. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.
    Right John of Kronstadt: Without peace and harmony with others, it is impossible for a person to have peace and harmony in himself, for disagreements and discord with neighbors suppress us noble and gentle feelings, and little by little make us cold, insensitive, cruel, wild, ferocious , not by humans and not by Christians, depriving us of inner peace, happiness and all welfare.

    A humanitarian disaster reigns in U.S.-controlled territories

    Briefly, the essence of US neocolonial policy is to free the territory with hydrocarbons from the population.

    It doesn’t even need oil as such; it needs control over its production and delivery. For this to be done by US-controlled puppets.

    Washington said the International Red Cross and Crescent Mission has nothing to do in Raqqa, as "there is no humanitarian catastrophe"

    From their point of view, everything is correct. It’s not corpses that were not removed from them in Washington, but somewhere there ... And it’s not the Americans, but, therefore, not the people .. Let them rot themselves. And, I would like to note, the average American does not understand this. For him, this is an abstraction ... But the people who are responsible for this do not give a damn about all humanitarian disasters. For this, the whole operation was started ...
    I hadn’t loved them very much before, but lately ... Oh ... Well, it’s good that most of the decision-makers in Russia are seasoned people.

    The topic is rightly raised, I have long believed that we must not defend ourselves but attack. Now the main thing is to continue, we have to drag the word Racca to all the media, let the mattresses make excuses.

    If our MOs are so correct, what is the problem of hitting militant training camps? If you are afraid of the “partners” in the fight against international terrorism angry, then there is nothing to open your mouth with accusatory speeches, otherwise it is very similar to duplicity and hypocrisy.
    The military should leave this mudslinging to politicians, it would be better to attack Israeli-style training camps, they say they threatened security and therefore were preventively destroyed.

    It is necessary to give bonuses for the shooting of armed Americans in a foreign territory. Take these $ 100 from the United States and give out 000 for every killed American soldier outside the United States. Do as the State Department prescribes us ... From Russia with love ... bully
