MOSCOW, (SANA)_As part of the global campaign in solidarity with Syria organized by the National Union of Syrian Students, the Syrian students and citizens assembled on Friday, together with their Russian friends outside the US embassy in Moscow to express support to the Syrian leadership, armed forces and people in confronting the international terrorism and the fierce campaign targeting it.
The supporters raised banners and chanted slogans condemning the aggressive policies of the US, EU countries, Gulf sheikhdoms and Turkey which seek to undermine Syria’s freedom, sovereignty and territorial safety, denouncing the infiltration of mercenary terrorists, arms smuggling and the terrorist crimes on the Syrian soil.
They also hoisted banners that read ”Get your Hands off Syria”, ”Syria and Russia…Friendship for ever”.
A number of Russian youth and social organizations took part in the event, including the Anti-Globalization Movement, Eurasia Youth Union and others.
In interviews with SANA reporter in Moscow, , Violetta Shisheldna, a Russian social activist, stressed support to Syria, adding ”I cannot hold back my tears when hearing the news of the aggression on Syria by the US, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.”
Alexander Kataiv, from the Anti-Globalization Movement , said ”This is not the first event in solidarity with Syria, and it won’t be the last. I’d like to say that Turkey the Gulf sheikhdoms are embroiling themselves in Syria, as evidenced by Erdogan’s latest contradictory behavior when he practiced air piracy and apologized later.”
Social activists expressed condemnation of the US policy towards Syria, voicing rejection of a forceful overthrow of the legitimate political regime there.
