Konashenkov: Western coalition attempts to stop the spread of terrorism from Syria "did not lead to any tangible results"

37
The actions of the United States and its allies in Syria could not stop the spread of terrorism, and did not lead to any positive results, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Igor Konashenkov.




The Russian Defense Ministry "was perplexed by the free interpretation of the head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter’s goals and the content of the Russian-American agreements on a cease-fire and ensuring a peaceful resolution of the crisis in Syria," said Konashenkov.

Starting an operation in Syria, the Russian military department "acted and will act against international terrorist groups that swallowed before the eyes of the whole world, including the United States, a UN member state," he said.

“Unfortunately, similar attempts to stop the spread of this contagion by an international coalition led by the United States, which had a different amount of resources, participants and time, did not lead to any tangible results”,
said the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

He recalled that "the slipping of the peace process and the constant recurrence of ceasefire violations today are fixed precisely in those areas of Syria where the" opposition "is wards the American side."

“That is, where, at the urgent request of American partners aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces do not apply even after providing irrefutable evidence of the presence in these areas of not “opposition”, but of formations of international terrorist groups, ”Konashenkov added.

According to him, "before talking about" correctness "," incorrectness "or to evaluate the effectiveness of the actions of the Russian military in Syria, we must remember that their goal is to destroy the terrorists and restore peace in this country."

Earlier, Carter said at a briefing: “The Russians have taken the wrong position in Syria. They said they were going there to fight the Islamic State terrorist group and help the political process of the transfer of power. They have done neither. ”

“If the Russians do the right things, and this is an important condition, we are ready to cooperate with them. And this is what we call them since they started their operation (in Syria), ”the head of the Pentagon said.

        I think. If the "partners" did not intervene: They would have raided the terrorists long ago, regardless of the "good" and the bad. The subject of the conversation itself would cease to exist. Only then can we talk about a peaceful settlement.

      Syrian President Assad was supposed to fight terrorism, but he essentially merged his country, turning it for the sake of his personal ambitions (the boy still did not want to resign, how painfully all of this is familiar) into one huge Stalingrad of 1942-43 .Russia
      I’ve gotten into a foreign war for myself, to please Assad, I’m taking chestnuts out of the fire for him. I don’t see the end of this war, I shouldn’t get stuck in it at all, several bases in Syria of Russia will not bring any special dividends, but participation in the Syrian civil war has already brought Russia tangible losses. I know very well that for such thoughts I will get at least 20 minuses, but I think it is dangerous to remain silent in this situation, most members of the forum have the opinion that the forces of the Russian Air Force can turn the tide. Even if by some miracle Assad succeeds If you stay in power and unite Syria, then this situation will not last long, you can’t sit on bayonets for a long time.

          When, in fact, there is nothing to object to, they include such arguments as the notorious "Western media", to which in response I would advise you to think with your own head and not take on faith everything that propagandists from Russian television say, they have been repeatedly caught lies.

              Gray-haired, I am not familiar with you since childhood and I will ask you to contact me in the future. And as for your insinuations about the "shekels" and "dill" - I do not intend to justify myself before your "hints" that I am writing all this for the money of Israel from Kiev. And as for the venality of the Russian media, if you are not too lazy, you can find on the same site two stories about how Russian television completely distorts reality. One story concerns France, and the second one inside Russian topics.

                If the Russians had not appeared in Syria, the Americans would have appeared (and probably already are). Then they would appear in other countries - loyal to Russia, and then, they would bring "democracy" to Russia itself. I don’t need such a gift, since there are enough examples.

    These places are the highest priority targets for our bombers, but if only the military was the only one! Big politics intervenes, but there is not everything so straightforward and the matter cannot be solved with a dashing raid and a well-aimed saber strike. Therefore, the sabers in the scabbard have divided Syria into flight zones where it is "not recommended ...". This strange war seems to have no end and edge.

    "The Russians took the wrong position in Syria. They said they were going there to fight the Islamic State terrorist group and assist the political process of transferring power"...

    Um ... Who is it and when did the Russian leadership say that Russia came to Syria to help transfer power from Assad ... to whom ??? To terrorists fighting against the legitimate president and government?

    No one denied that Russia's goal is to help keep Assad as the legitimate president. And Russia is fighting not specifically against IS, but against terrorists fighting against the legitimate government ... How else, except as a "terrorist", can you call such people?

    And I just don't understand how it is possible to call people with weapons in their hands anyone, but not terrorists ... "Moderate" opposition ... Look, in Great Britain, explosions have been thundering for many years now ... Is that a "moderate opposition" ? Or terrorists? Or "peace fighters"?

    If in a country that does not conduct any officially declared war, the civilian population dies as a result of the use of weapons, this is terrorism ...
