MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. The United Kingdom is especially active in fighting against Russia on the informational front over the military operation in Syria, first deputy chairman of Federation Council’s committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich said on Wednesday.
"Not a day goes by without UK foreign secretary’s attacks at Russia’s policy in Syria," Klintsevich told journalists commenting on UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond’s statements that Russia could be trying to use "the peace process as a fig leaf to try to deliver some kind of military victory for Assad that creates an Alawite mini state in the northwest of Syria." "It is impossible not to notice that UK is particularly active on the informational front against Russia," he added.
Klintsevich noted that "Philip Hammond does not bother to provide any proof" when he accuses Russia. "It seems like there are no more specialists on Russia in the world. Only a person who does not its history at all can make such statements," he added.
The parliamentarian noted that "Russia never squandered its gifts on trifles." "We consider Syria as our ally in the Middle East and, of course, we are interested in preserving the territorial integrity of this country, strengthening its statehood," he added. "Talking about an Alawite mini state, it can never be such an ally due to its obvious weakness," he concluded.
