Om en rysk undersökning angående en påstådd attack med kemiska vapen i mars – Russia Today – Russian inquiry to UN: Rebels, not Army, behind Syria Aleppo sarin attack

Samples taken at the Syrian town where chemical weapons were allegedly used indicate that it was rebels – not the Syrian army – behind the attack, Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin has said.
Russia has handed over the analyzed samples to the UN, he added.
“I have just passed the analysis of samples taken at the site of the chemical attack to the UN Secretary General (Ban Ki-moon),” Churkin said on Tuesday.
Evidence studied by Russian scientists indicates that a projectile carrying the deadly nerve agent sarin was most likely fired at Khan al-Assal by the rebels, Churkin pointed out.
“It was determined that on March 19 the rebels fired an unguided missile Bashair-3 at the town of Khan al-Assal, which has been under government control. The results of the analysis clearly show that the shell used in Khan al-Assal was not factory made and that it contained sarin,” he said.

syriensolidaritet.se – Syriens FN-ambassadör: Allt våld måste upphöra

Vi måste få ett slut på allt våld, inte bara delar av det, säger Syriens FN-ambassadör.
Den syriska regeringen avfärdar delar av den väststödda så kallade oppositionens erbjudande om en vapenvila i Homs under den muslimska fastemånaden ramadan, som inleds på onsdag.
”Vi måste få ett slut på allt våld, inte bara delar av det”, sade Syriens FN-ambassadör Bashar Ja’afari samtidigt som han uppmanade alla oppositionella att engagera sig i de fredsförhandlingar som är planerade att hållas i Genève i augusti. Idén om nya fredssamtal lanserades gemensamt av Rysslands utrikesminister Sergej Lavror och USA:s utrikesminister John Kerry i maj.
En av stötestenarna inför dessa samtal har varit vem eller vilka som ska representera den så kallade oppositionen vid förhandlingarna. Denna består av en brokig och vildvuxen skara grupper, alltifrån rena banditgäng som härjar i Syrien till exilpolitiker som främst företräder utländska makters intresse. Sönderfallet inom denna opposition har varit märkbar en längre tid.

syriensolidaritet.se – Lyckad manifestation mot USA-imperialismen

Imperialismens företrädare och dess uppbackare hävdar ofta att kampen i Syrien och stödet till den den av väst skapade, så kallade oppositionen syftar till att införa demokrati. Det imperialismen i detta sammanhang kallar demokrati kallar vi för hyckleri. Hur kan det vara demokratiskt att stödja väpnade gäng som begår de värsta illdåd? I demokratins namn? Väpnade gäng som ofta i våra oförvitliga och sanningssökande medier kallas för salafistiska. Men den salafistiska övertygelsen är många gånger av sent datum. Den kom med de saudiska pengarna. Det är inget religionskrig som pågår i Syrien, som medierna i bland påstår. Det är en imperialistisk invasion, som medierna alltid förtiger.
Det finns ingen revolution i Syrien. Det berättigade folkliga missnöje som finns kan inte längre göra sig hört. Det dränks i stridslarmet från en bestialisk invasionsarmé understödd, utrustad och beväpnad av länder som kallar sig själva demokratiska och säger sig vilja ha demokrati i Syrien.
Det är samma länder som har infört demokrati i Libyen och Irak. Vad är det för demokrati? I Libyen härjar beväpnade gäng på gatorna och gör livet osäkert för invånarna. I Irak exploderar bomberna nästan varje dag och tusentals människoliv skördas.

english.ruvr.ru – Russian, US experts disagree over many aspects of Syrian problem – Morozov

The Syria situation and its implications for the Middle East were the main subjects of a Moscow meeting of Russian and US experts.
The experts met at a bilateral seminar organized by the Public Projects Institute (INOP) and the Center for the National Interest based in Washington DC, expert in Middle East affairs, member of the Federation Council International Affairs Committee Igor Morozov said.
”Celebrated politicians, among them former Senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart, four-star general Charles Boyd and policy expert Dmitri Simes, represented the US in the discussion. Russia was represented by parliamentarians and foreign policy experts,” Morozov said.
Syria was the center of the discussion, which revealed opposite opinions of Russia and the United States.
”Our US partners said that it was possible to discuss Syrian issues and methods of solving them only in the case of the unconditional resignation of Bashar al-Assad. They made themselves clear – ”al-Assad must go” before the formation of an interim government and elections of the new authorities are discussed,” Morozov said.
Russia asked counter-questions, he said. ”We asked why al-Assad, a legitimate president, must go. He enjoys the support of many people in spite of the conflict. He is in command of over 300,000 servicemen. And only one year is left until the next election,” Morozov said.
