Russia is calling for an extraordinary meeting of the United Nations Security Council (BT) due to the US-British-French military strike for Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Saturday in Moscow.
“Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria, where Russian soldiers are helping the legitimate government to fight terrorism,” he said.
Russian aggression, aggravated by the Syrian humanitarian situation, accused military executives, as well as playing the hands of “terrorists”.
“Without the UN Security Council’s mandate, in violation of the UN Charter and the norms of international law, there has been an aggression against a sovereign state that is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism,” the Kremlin’s Cheese Service quoted the chairman as saying.
Putin said that, when arguing for the military strike, as did a year ago at the attack on the airport at the airport, the United States used as a pretext for an attack on the civilian population that he thought was organized. He stressed that Russian military experts had “no evidence of a chemical attack on the site of the suspected incident” as toxic substances and that “no local population has confirmed the chemical attack.”
The Russian President pointed out that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) sent its experts to the scene to clarify the situation, but the countries that carried out the military operation did not expect the results of the investigation.
“The current escalation of the situation in Syria has a devastating effect on the entire system of international relations. History puts it all in place and has already taken responsibility in Washington for the sake of bloodshed with Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya,” the Russian head of state said.
Marija Zaharova, a Russian foreign affairs spokeswoman, declared Rosszija 1 as a state TV channel an attack on international law “gross and insolent violation”, which he thwarts the OPCW’s work. As he said, Russia will present BT’s “facts” about the military strike.
Sergey Rudszkom, head of Operation Department of the Russian General Staff, said that Syrian air defense destroyed Syria, S-125, S-200, Buk, Kvadrat, and Osa, which had been deployed in the Soviet era, 71 against the Arab country deployed 103 maneuvering jet aircraft. As he said, according to the first summaries, the attack did not have any casualties among the civilian population or the Syrian army, the situation in Damascus is calm.
Rudszkoj confirmed that the Syrian missile systems of Russian air defense did not take part in solving the US-British-French attack. He said that after the attack, Moscow could again consider sending S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria as well as several other countries that had been abandoned for a few years on Western demand.
According to his words, Russia has completely restored Syria’s air defense system over the past one and a half years and continues to improve it.
Rudszki claimed, moreover, that the Russian and Russian air defense systems of the Tartus and Hymmymos detected and controlled all American and British air and ground launch missiles, but the participation of the French air force was not recorded in the attack on Syria. In the attack, according to the Russian general, American B-1B, F-15, F-16 and British Tornado aircraft were involved over the Mediterranean basin, while the American Laboon destroyer and the Monterey cruiser from the Red Sea he released his missiles. B-1B bombers approached their target targets in the Syrian area of “Eth-Tanf unlawfully controlled by the United States”.
According to a report from Rosszija 24, Moscow also convened an extraordinary meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. The defense block is adjacent to Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.
Jon Huntsman, Ambassador of the United States of America, told the community media channels of the foreign mission: the United States contacted Russia before the military intervention to have as few victims as possible among Russian forces and the civilian population.
