“The Syrian people and Assad are fighting on the front line against the principal inhuman evil, and Russia will never betray them”, said leader of the movement “Essence of Time” Sergey Kurginyan during the TV program ‘Time will tell’ on Channel 1, aired on April 7.
While responding to the question from the host, Anton Sheinin, about how Russia should react to the U.S. attack on the Syrian airfield and the ISIL offense, the political expert said that Russia has never and will not betray the Syrian people.
“We should let the entire country know that we will never betray them. We have never betrayed the Syrian people; we have never gotten into collusions with anyone, and the criminals will answer for what they have done. We will find a way to hold the criminals responsible without provoking a third world war, but by preventing it”, said Sergey Kurginyan.
He reminded that it is the Syrian people who are now on the front line of the fight against the advocates of the caliphate.
“ISIL [organization banned in Russia] is the main inhuman evil that the world is facing today, it seeks creating a caliphate and to restructure the world. The Syrian people and President Assad are fighting against ISIL [organization banned in Russia] and whatever characteristics they have, better or worse, ISIL is a thousand times worse, and the Syrian people are the only ones who are standing on the front line of this fight. The world must recognize the value of their feat.”
Sergey Kurginyan stressed that U.S. actions against Assad can be regarded as support to Islamists.
“The U.S. has just helped ISIL [organization banned in Russia], and that is it”, concluded the political expert.
On the night of April 6 to the 7th, the U.S. Navy launched more than 50 Tomahawk missiles targeting a Syrian airfield located in Homs province. The Russian military has also used this airfield. According to the White House, the U.S. air strike was a response to a chemical attack in Idlib province that had allegedly been conducted by Syrian aircraft based at the targeted airfield.
