While airstrikes by the US-led coalition in Syria have only resulted in terrorists seizing ever new chunks of the Middle East republic territory, the Russian military operation, launched in 2016, has led to a huge military shift. It was stated by independent British journalist.
“Under the US ISIS flourished, and the Russian intervention pushed the terrorists back. We’ve seen huge military advances by the Syrian government forces. The world has seen that the US-led coalition is not an honest broker in international affairs, while Russia has assumed an honest stance in dealing with the situation,” Vanessa Beeley said.
Regarding Russia’s biggest military victories in the Syrian campaign, she said that the liberation of cities and villages from terrorist occupation is a huge victory per se, the biggest game changer is that it exposed Western propaganda and bias of the mainstream media against the Syrian government and its allies.
“Of course, the liberation of Deir ez-Zor broke the terrorists’ back, so I think that these two great victories have had a huge impact on the course of the Syrian war,” she added.
Mentioning the main diplomatic goals Russia has achieved in Syria, Beeley pointed to the Syrian people’s renewed belief in the government’s reconciliation efforts and the drawing of demarcation lines between those who genuinely seek a resolution of the crisis and the terrorists hell-bent on deposing the Syrian government.
She also underscored the all-embracing humanitarian assistance Russia has been giving the Syrian people, including mobile hospitals, food and water supplies, etc., while the US and its allies have done nothing of the sort.
“This, for me, is the main difference between what Russia and the West are doing in Syria. The Russian operation has been conducted with strong cooperation with the Syrian government and its allies, and with huge respect for civilians, while the US-led coalition has deployed indiscriminate bombardments showing no regard for civilian life in Syria,” Beeley continued.
She also mentioned the ramping up of Cold War rhetoric by the US and other Western governments reflecting their frustration with the geopolitical shift achieved by Russia as an honest broker in international affairs.
