MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russia and Syria are confronted with the same information warfare, member of the Russian State Duma deputy Alexander Yuschenko told a TASS news conference on Wednesday. He visited Damascus as part of the Russian parliamentary delegation.
"We have long been faced with the information pressure on Russia, which began with Russophobia and anti-Soviet sentiment. There was a similar trend, we could see it more acutely after the situation in the Donbas region when we were accused of all manner of offences," Yuschenko said.
"And the same standard patterns of information warfare are used against Syria," the lawmaker said. According to Yuschenko, this information warfare against Russia and Syria continues. "All these defamations and manipulation of facts can be seen pretty often," he said.
The delegation of Russian lawmakers, which also comprised MP from the Russian Communist Party Sergey Gavrilov and member of the Federation Council Dmitry Sablin, arrived in Syria on October 23 and returned to Russia on October 28. During the visit they met with their counterparts from the Syrian parliament, Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi and President Bashar al-Assad.
