“The US Department of State needs a cure for Russophobia, which against the backdrop of the need to combine efforts against the coronavirus pandemic looks especially cynical.” This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs, Sergei Zheleznyak, commenting on the statement by the US State Department.
“Russia’s accusations of the death of the Turkish military in Syria are completely groundless. Moreover, it is precisely those who are trying to push Moscow and Ankara in Syria with their foreheads that are guilty of flirting with terrorists, among whom, for some reason, are Turkish military personnel. For those seeking to maintain their influence in the Middle East region of the United States, stabilization of the situation is not at all at hand. The United States, according to the old scenario, instead of using its efforts to resolve the conflict, only throw fire at it.
On the contrary, Russia acts as a peacemaker, proposes concrete measures to end the bloodshed, and fulfills its obligations under the agreements reached at the meeting of the leaders of Russia and Turkey, ”the politician emphasized.
He noted: “Washington is extremely annoyed by the high level of contractability of Moscow and Ankara, which, against the background of an explosive situation, were able to find a compromise and reduce tension in the Idlib zone. Obviously, we will observe in Syria new attempts of incitement from the USA, which demonstrate an unwillingness to support the process of peaceful settlement and continue to play on the contradictions of the parties to the conflict.”
