Russian Diplomat: armed terrorist groups responsible for criminal act in Ghouta to escalate situation

August 22, 2013 – Beirut, (SANA) – The Russian Ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, on Thursday stressed that the armed terrorist groups are responsible for the criminal act in al-Ghouta in Damascus Countryside through a locally-made missile that was launched in an area controlled by these groups.

He pointed out that the massacre comes in the framework of the plan set by the terrorists and those behind them in order to mix things up in light of the Syrian Arab Army’s field success with the aim of escalating the political and security situation, in addition to posing the chemical weapon issue as a pretext to pass resolutions against the Syrian state.

In an interview with the Lebanese al-Manar TV, Zasypkin clarified that the Russian stance is built on information and analysis which prove that the missile was launched from armed terrorist groups’ sites.

He called for standing in the face of the armed opposition’s scheme in order not to allow it to benefit from the crime, as there should be an international pressure on the ‘opposition’ to participate in finding a political settlement through the international Conference on Syria.

He reaffirmed his country’s firm approach regarding the crisis in Syria, clarifying that there is no room for rumors on compromises, as Russia has geopolitical constants- not narrow interests.
