MOSCOW, February 9 (Itar-Tass) — The international community should not act in Syria like an elephant in a china shop, Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin said.

“We should not act like an elephant in a china shop. We should give people an opportunity to decide their own fate by helping, suggesting or limiting in certain ways so that the warring factions had no chance to use weapons, but without interfering,” Putin said on Wednesday, February 8.

“We should certainly five the people of these countries an opportunity to solve these problems on their own,” he said, commenting on the situation in Syria and Libya. “Our task is to help them do so without external interference.”

Putin stressed, “I am very well aware of what the regime in Libya was like.” But at the same time, he is surprised that “no one shows today what is happening in the city of Sirte or other cities that supported former Libyan leader. Horrible crimes are happening there, but no one speaks about that, everyone has forgotten about that for some reason. Because these are the terrible consequences of external interference, primarily armed interference. The same is true of Syria,” he said.

“We condemn all violence no matter where it comes from,” Putin added.
