Advanced Weapons Were Supplied To Terrorists In Syria Via Bogus Companies: Lavrov

The Russian state news agency TASS reports (source):

State-of-the-art weapons, including drones, were supplied to terrorists in Syria by foreign sponsors via bogus companies, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an address to the participants in an anti-terror conference in Moscow that was read out by Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov on Monday.

“Terrorists’ resistance in Syria has not been broken down to the end,” Lavrov said in the address. “Scattered groups of terrorists continue fierce fighting. Notably, militants suffer no shortage of weapons and munitions. Moreover, they use state-of-the-art weapons, such as unmanned aerial vehicles. Evidently, it would be impossible without foreign sponsors.”

“The counter-terrorist operation in Syria has exposed numerous evidence of supplies of various weapons and hardware to terrorists by bogus companies via third countries,” the document says.

The Russian top diplomat called on the world community to do away with the so-called “grey zones” in the economy used as a channel to supply militants with weapons. He also insisted that the practice of dividing terrorists into “good” and “bad” be stopped. “Life proves that everyone loses in the long run,” he underscored.

    What? As I recall didn’t Lavrov go along with Kerry in labeling the “good/bad” terrorists? Russia made some major blunders in Syria from pulling some of its’ forces out early, the good/bad terrorist BS, not defending her ally, Syria when attacked…..list goes on. Being passive doesn’t pay when fighting bullies.

    Trump cancelled his scheduled plans for today and just tweeted this.

    “President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!”

    I do not have a clue what is going on.

    Lavrov is at a severe disadvantage relative to his counterparts in the US-led coalition. Lavrov is sane.
