Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius assessed the actions of the Russian Federation in Syria on his Twitter account:
“Tensions in Syria revealed the true role of Russia. Being the aggressor in Ukraine, one can’t be a peacemaker elsewhere.”
As QHA reported earlier, at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council due to the worsening situation in Syria, the US permanent representative to the organization Samantha Power called Russia's actions in Syria "barbarism", but not the fight against terrorism.
Just a reminder: As a result of dropping "barrel" bombs from helicopters on the convoy, which was heading to the area of Urum al-Kubra (Aleppo) with cargo for 75 thousand Syrians, 20 trucks were burned, 12 people died, and another 18 suffered wounds of various severity.
Over a week of ceasefire in Syria, established on the first day of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces, violated the ceasefire in 34 districts of the country 254 times, the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces stated.
