The official delegation of Russian parliamentarians arrived on April 11 on an official visit to Syria.
Recall, on Saturday, the United States, Britain and France struck a blow at Syria, in which more than a hundred missiles were fired. Most of them were destroyed by the Syrian air defense. Russian funds in repelling the attack were not involved. The strikes were directed at facilities that, according to Washington, are used by government agencies for the production of chemical weapons.
