In Syria and the Middle East, Russia can provide an asymmetric response without entering into a hot war, said Sergey Kurginyan, the leader of the movement “Essence of Time” on April 7, during the TV broadcasting “Time will tell“, on the First Channel.
Citing the conflict between China and Vietnam in 1979 as an example, Sergey Kurginyan noted: “You see, there was a time when China crossed the border and started attacking Vietnam. At that time we wondered whether a nuclear war would begin. And then what did Vietnam do? Vietnam said: Do not interfere, we will respond. And China was pushed back.“
Referring to modern models of Russian weapons, which, in the opinion of Western military experts pose a threat to NATO air forces, Sergey Kurginyan stated, “And now, if the Syrian response would be as it should be, then we are ready to provide the S-400 and everything else, then this would be the next development. But we should not get involved in a hot war, we have not exhausted our options. Technically, we intercepted part of the missiles – but tomorrow we will intercept everything. Can we create a new Syrian air defense system? Yes, we can“.
Speaking in regards to the hybrid war and its aspects, the political scientist stressed, “In fact, if the issue goes further, the problems might begin at very different points. We are not going to activate them. They will arise themselves. For example, in Mosul or elsewhere. And this is also part of the asymmetric response. The most important thing is not to allow a hot war. “
On the night of April 7, the US Navy launched a massive missile attack on the Syrian airbase in the province of Holmes. The order for this attack was given by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, who accused Syria of air strikes against civilians using chemical weapons. According to the information of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, during the missile attack, only 23 out of 59 cruise missiles reached the target.
