MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. The lack of Russia’s support in Syria would have forced the Western public feel horrified at the atrocities of terrorists in Europe, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in response to a statement by German government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
"From Germany’s federal government we have heard statements about some shocking strikes by the Syrian government on Aleppo," Zakharova said. "There’ve been claims that without heavy Russian military support the Assad regime would’ve been unable to wage a war on the population."
"Well, it is true that without Russia’s heavy military support the progressive Western public, German in particular, would’ve now be shivering with fear and horror at the atrocities of Islamic State terrorists, who would’ve already seized Syria and neighboring countries of the region and, what is more important, got as far as Europe," Zakharova said. "There would’ve been not sporadic terrorist attacks, but full-scale war on the EU’s territory.".
