Posição oficial da Parte Russa em relação à situação na Síria
Following negotiations on a settlement in Ukraine and the situation around Syria, the Russian President made a statement for the press.
On October 8, the Russian Federation voted against the UN Security Council draft resolution on Syria, proposed by France.
According to media reports, the leadership of 21 armed opposition groups in Syria, including Ahrar al-Sham, have refused to abide by the provisions of the ceasefire that came into force on September 12. These detachments intend to continue to fight the Syrian government “to the last round of ammunition.”
We consider this an outrageous challenge to the Russian-US efforts to consolidate the cessation of hostilities, facilitate the resolution of humanitarian problems and create conditions for launching an inclusive intra-Syrian political process.
Article by Russian President Vladimir Putin published in the US newspaper New York Times.
Vladimir Putin summed up the results of the G20 Summit and answered journalists’ questions.
In light of the aggravation of the situation around Syria, it is especially worrying that any forceful action against this country may touch objects which are sensitive in terms of nuclear security and nuclear non-proliferation.
We continue to receive alarming signals about an approaching military interference in the Syrian conflict without proper sanctions from the UN Security Council. As before, we consider that such a position is absolutely contrary to international law and is therefore unacceptable.
The reaction of the international community and individual states to the use of chemical weapons shall remain within a strict legal framework. At the same time, any reaction must be supported by the results of a thorough independent investigation.
On the eve of the G20 Summit, Vladimir Putin gave an interview to Channel One and the Associated Press news agency. The interview was recorded in Novo-Ogaryovo on September 3.
We draw attention to the mass filling of information space with different materials, the purpose of which is to impose responsibility for the alleged use of chemical weapons in Damascus on the Syrian officials, before the results of the UN investigation are presented. Thus, “the ground is prepared” for forceful action against Syria. In view of this, we deem it possible to share the main conclusions of the Russian analysis of the samples taken in the place of the incident using military poisonous substances in the Aleppo suburb – Khan al-Asal.
