MOSCOW, February 24 (Itar-Tass) — The West has no right to place responsibility for human deaths in Syria’s Homs on Russia, the head of the State Duma international affairs committee, Alexei Pushkov, who recently made a visit to Damascus, said at a news conference on Friday.
“Why is the responsibility for causalities placed on Russia?” he asked. “And who provides support for the armed groups? They are supported by the West. The West should send a right signal to the opposition, while at the moment the situation is such that the opposition feels full support.”
“I believe that Russia’s position is absolutely right,” Pushkov said expressing confidence that Russia can stop tragic events in Syria’s towns, but the United States and Europe should also be interested in this.
