Syria Crisis: William Hague presses Russia
Posted by seumasach on May 28, 2012
Hague’s call for Russia to resolve the crisis is an interesting one. Russia don’t share Hague’s line that Assad is behind these killings and suggest that Al Qaeda type elements are more likely responsible. The UN report hints that the massacre is connected to government bombardment but that doesn’t seem consistent with the injuries sustained. Russia doesn’t support Britain’s regime change agenda and is definitely not soft on Al Qaeda.
“It isn’t in the interests of Russia, it’s not in anyone’s interests, for Syria to descend into an even bloodier situation and into a full-scale civil war and that’s now the danger.”
If this is a threat designed to force Russia into removing Assad I suggest it is a futile one.
