MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin noted that ‘the Libyan scenario’ in Syria is inadmissible.
‘”We should not allow someone to seek to realize ‘the Libyan scenario’ in Syria. The efforts of the international community should be targeted at the attainment of inter-Syrian reconciliation,” the Russian presidential candidate said in his program article entitled “Russia and the Changing World”, which is published in the Moskovskiye Novosti (Moscow News) newspaper on Monday.
The Russian prime minister expressed hope that “the US and other countries will take into account a regretful experience and will not seek to use a scenario with the use of force in Syria without any sanction of the UN Security Council.”
“By the way, I cannot realize from where such a militaristic itching comes? Why do they lack patience to work out a clear-cut and balanced collective approach, moreover, in case of the mentioned Syrian resolution draft it was already taking shape?” Putin contemplated.
“If we want to protect civilians, that is the top priority for Russia, it is necessary to bring to reason all participants in the armed confrontation,” the prime minister underlined.
