Vice-President Hisham Marwa said that by directly intervening in Syria, Russia has lost the role of mediator or sponsor of a political solution, and eventually become ineligible to put forward initiatives for solutions to the conflict. “Russia has became a party to the Assad regime’s war against the Syrian people.
“Russia’s calls for forming an alliance to fight terrorism conflicts with its support for Assad with weapons, experts and more recently with fighters. The Russians are now building an airbase at the Syrian coast and have set about renovating the airbases from which Assad’s warplanes take off carrying barrel bombs to drop them on women and children.
Marwa stresses that Russia’s initiatives it has proposed over the past four years are mere maneuvers aimed at granting Assad more time to kill more Syrians.
He points out that the Russian support for the Assad regime has contributed to the surge of extremist organizations, adding that the big waves of refugees reaching Europe are mainly caused the Assad regime’s ongoing brutal war on the Syrian people. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
