25.08.2016 - Syrian settlement: setting the record straight (by Ambassador Yakovenko for RT)

A grave humanitarian situation in Aleppo today is the most topical issue within the context of settlement in Syria. Over past two weeks, as the Syrian Government forces and Russian Air Force successfully resist the “Jabhat al-Nusra”-led offensive, there have been increased efforts by some media to distort the real situation in Aleppo. The terrorists, who seek to seize the whole city, are obviously not interested in a ceasefire and establishing humanitarian corridors for civilians caught up in the fighting. However, a large-scale humanitarian operation is under way, conducted by the Syrian Government with Russia’s assistance.

24.08.2016 - Sergey Lavrov’s answer to a question by the TASS News Agency

Question: Can you comment on the regular media reports about modern weapons making it into the hands of terrorist groups in the Middle East and North Africa? Sergey Lavrov: Apparently, our Western colleagues have yet to fully realise the implications of their recent military operations in the Middle East and Africa. They believed they would destroy the Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi regimes, and that democracy would instantly prevail in Iraq and Libya. Instead, these nations are now torn by chaos. Abandoned military depots and arsenals were looted. All weapons, including MANPADS, and hundreds of tonnes of ammunition, went missing. Now, those countries are shattered by fratricidal wars with no end in sight. Unfortunately, this situation was quite predictable, and the President repeatedly warned about it
