Russian Foreign Minister Warns U.S. From Attempts To Create 'Quasi-State' In Syria

Russian Foreign Minitster Sergei Lavrov warned the United States of attempts to create a “a certain quasi-state on a large part of the Syrian territory”. The minister also said that Russia has the US “a suspicion…. that the United States wants to stay there [in Syria] for a long time, if not forever.”

“The Americans, in my opinion … are trying to act by dangerous unilateral steps. And by the way, these steps look more and more like part of a line for creating a certain quasi-state on a large part of the Syrian territory — on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and up to the Iraqi border,” Lavrov said.

Lavrov further warned that US actions “undermine the territorial integrity of Syria” and expressed hope that the UN will prevent “external players” from undermining the Security Council’s road map for a peace process in the war-torn country.

He also emphasized to the ongoing international efforts to hold peace talks between the Damascus government and the opposition and once again recalled that Russia supports participation of Kurdish representatives in the process.

    I’m curious who in the US government is orchestrating these events and just how much control over this the White House really has?

    • Barba_Papa

      Trump’s generals I’d say? The Pentagon seems to have more say in foreign policy these days then the secretary of state.

      Of course Lavrov is not really in a position to say much about this subject, because A: in order to confront the Americans one must have at least enough strength to give them pause. And B: Russia has kinda done the same in the Ukraine with those ‘People’s Republics’. On the plus side this completely makes any Western complaints about socalled Russian behavior in the Ukraine irrelevant, because pot, kettle, black.

      So I reckon Lavrov needs to come up with something clever, or at least have it backed up with enough force to give pause to the Americans. And you know what, in the long term I have faith that he and Putin will.

      • Mahmoud HAm

        If the US stay it will pay a high price like what happened in Iraq before. Waite and see.

      • FlorianGeyer

        ” Russia has kinda done the same in the Ukraine with those ‘People’s Republics’ ”

        The glaring difference of course is that Ukraine is immediately on the Russian borders and the USA is 3500 miles away.

        What would be the US reaction be if Russia were to pay for a coup in Mexico and use Mexican gangs to intimidate the people of Mexico ?

        That is effectively what the US has done in Ukraine and it was planned for 10 years according to Victoria Nuland, the State Dept mouthpiece at the time of the coup.

        • John Whitehot

          “What would be the US reaction be if Russia were to pay for a coup in Mexico and use Mexican gangs to intimidate the people of Mexico ?”

          Take Cuba for example. And it wasn’t even a coup, or gangs.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Yes. It was total hysteria. I was young then but still remember it . :)

          • matt

            Only after the usa tried to get rid of fidel, he turned to the USSR, don’t change the truth here!!

          • John Whitehot

            The example of Cuba has been chosen because it gives proportion to things.

            The Cuban revolution (and the toppling of the US stooge Fulgencio Batista) wasn’t started by the USSR, it was started and finished by the Cuban people with their own strength. Which is very different from the involvement of the US in Ukraine since BEFORE the events of Maidan.

            In addition Fidel accepted a larger USSR protection after the Bay of the pigs invasion, and a number of attempts on his life by the CIA.

            In any case, the example wasn’t made to “change the truth” or undermine the struggle of the Cuban people to become free from being basically a funhouse for US tourists.

          • matt

            OK, nice to see your adjustments to the story

          • velociraptor

            This is true story. El Che leaved Cuba because of Castros deal wit USSR.

          • matt

            This is why i said NICE to see your adjustments

          • Ronald

            Fidel , booted out the American mob who ran Cuba , the mob had good connections because they had run security for the ports during the 2ond WW.
            Castro had incredible luck , and some good KGB help , but the CIA tried to assassinate him 7 or 8 hundred times !

    • Mahmoud HAm

      The White House has an idiot in office so the (Zionist) Generals run the show

      • John Whitehot

        it doesn’t matter who’s in office in the White House. In fact, they wanted to put there a woman that in addition to be an idiot, is a mental patient subject to nervous and physical breakdowns and probably an alcholic.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Zionist Jews Alder. They own the USA.

  • Ma_Laoshi

    No shit Sergei, are you just now starting to suspect what the US announced openly last week already? The US have been undermining Syria’s territorial integrity for a decade already, or since their Tel Aviv branch took the Golan, depending on how you look at it.

    • Frank Tringale

      @ ma -maybe a powerful neighbor in your neighborhood will come in and undermine your house and family

      This is Putin and Lavrov blunders in Syria. Now Assad will be left with divided Syria, as Putin and Lavrov have no clue how to deal with Americans and Israelis. Time for Assad to look for new partners and protectors. Russia is not only failng Syria, but also Russians

          • velociraptor

            Far not. If he would, the development in Syria and Ukraine take better direction.
            And yes, he is uzurper. Trumo accepts fact, that he can be elected twice. Will not change the election law for him. Russia is a land with almost zero freedom.

          • peter

            During Jelcin was Russian on the knee,humble.USA was in Russian country as home.Power of Russian was removed.What happend?The NATO start coming
            to border RF.Somebody must this cut off.RF must do choice:democracy by USA,or proud,independent nation.RF must be under strong leader,no under pseudo democracy.Historical timeline of juesej:killing of indians,and during existence USA about 200 war and conflicts all around the world.Thanks for this style of democracy.

          • velociraptor

            Of course, Putin is the best from times of Stalin. But this is the tragedy, that there is no one better. And next tragedy, there is no altenative.

            This is the centuries long mistake of russians: they think, there is needed strong leader. In modern world the flexibility is much more important. Flexible citizens you have only in freedom. Not in oligarchia. Therefore is the big stagnation of Russia. Compare with China. Where was China and where is now. Normal people can rise, found factories, firms. In russia only the favourites of godfathers.

          • peter

            Russians are special nationality,opposite collection of bastards from all around the world!These bastards are clever and creative.Who do USA bad,are congress and jews!

          • velociraptor

            Russians were always losers. The defined themselves as not europeans. And if other nations accept this, the russians feel themselves exulcerated. This was already in the early beginning of Moscow khanat. The russian popes told, Moscow is the 3rd Rome and better to be slave of tatars then cooperate with europeans. beacuse of rome. So, from that time began the decline of russians. In the beginning of 1900´s they pulled ships by hand, because the muzhik, the russian villain was gratis. and his life costs nothing. Russia always fall off in innovations. And always solved with wars to take western technique, later technology. But today is no more able this way. So, russians are really not europeans in menthality., but not something glorious, bit just opposite, the dark byzantian spirit.

            But boy, there is nothing about help for RF. Putuns friends buy western luxury houses, aprtments, ffootball clubs. They bring the money out of Russia. The give to Russia nothing. Also not taxes. So it is. Putin is much worse than Ivan the Terrible or peter the Great. They cut the wings of boyars. Putin does not do this.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            WTF what is a democracy, show where one is since the US is a republic like most.

          • velociraptor

            Still democracy. In russia is parody of democracy.
            Historical timeline: tsarism, communism, oligarchia. Thanks, primitive society.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Let’s see between Tsarism and Communism was Democracy lasted 6 mos before the Communist killed everybody connected to it , go figure they were Bolshevik Jews. So by the explanation you offer Jews are primitive in their ideology, sounds about right.

          • velociraptor

            Bolsheviks were from all nations living in Russia. Stalin was not a jew. He killed lots of jews, but also members of all other nations.

            The main point is, why accept russian people such undemocratic governments? There is a big leak in your logic: if russians were refused communism, some thousands jews had no chance. Rzussians like dictatorship, they are not prepared for freedom. And therefore they will fall. In 21st century the countries, where is suppressed the initiativity and the people wait for “bumazhca” (paper wit stamp) to begin to do something (like in nazi Germany everything went through Hitler), thos countires have no chance to development.

          • peter

            Development under former colonial coutries as colony?You thing freedom destroy another countries as Libya,Syria,Irak,who dont want make bussines with USA?The USA need prevetive nuclear impact,should people of usa know,what is war! Sorry to common people of usa !My friend here dont go about factories build up,here go about survival under hegemony USA !

          • velociraptor

            What are you talking about, boy?! Too much mushroom???

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Just one of 17 not a Jew then further more Jews came to power yep right , Stalin Killed more non Jews just fact Jews killed millions in the Gulags. Russians have turned to another form of government Oligarchy is US style that we see there now. US will fall because they are not prepared to be civilized human beings, nor are the vassal states like Israel. Sounds like many countries right now you seem to have a very narrow view in life.

          • velociraptor

            Look, i lived with this history, and simply is absolutely irreal the viewpoint, that the jews killed the non-jews. Btw., lot of jews sent in Gulag another jews. In thet time were red, whites, both sides killed the civilians. As massively as the germans. For example check, how many russians, ukraininas were killed by polish Wrangler.

      @ Ma_Laoshi : To be fair while the US has been in Iraq since 2003 , they have only been in Syria (as US forces) , since June of 2016 . Correct me If I error , from memory only .
      Really only since ISIS was defeated by SAA at Al Bukumal , and the announcement of a “Syrian Border Force” has their intent been clear , the creation of “Kurdistan” in Syria . As you know it didn’t go as planned in Iraq . I perceive Sergei , Putin et al have resolved along with Turkey and Iraq that this American creation is not to be .

      • Ma_Laoshi

        “For a decade already” referred to the Roebuck memo, disclosed by Wikileaks, which was entitled “plans to destabilize Syria” or something very close to it, and dated 2006 or 2007 if memory serves. We’ll have to see how it’ll all play out, but I don’t think there was ever any ambiguity about Washington’s intentions since the bodies started piling up.

        • Ronald

          Couldn’t agree more .

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Plan: “Bringing Muscle to Bear in Syria” was in 2006 and is available in the CIA’s freedom of Information library in the electronic reading room. They had announced in 2009 everything was go to certain UK/EU NATO politicians about Syria “Al Qaeda Spring” funded by the NATO,GCC and Israel to coincide Libya and Egypt and Syria dubbed operation “Arab Spring”. These operations are part of operation “New Century” in 99′

    Mr Lavrov…USA only understand other lenguage…look at Erdogan…he deployed SAM missile & Koral electronic warfare to avoid US airstrike vs Tukish backed forces like USA did vs SAA….and Spanish proverb says ” when you see your neighbor´s bear shaving…put yours to soak!”…It means that Erdogan knows the USA intentions in Siria!…it is a new Israel with US bases inside and 70% of oil/gas reserve looted…so deploy S-400 in Deir Ezzor& Damascus to avoid the inevitable…it is more US airstrike vs SAA there!

    • Apache

      And Turkey are going no where near Manbij because they’re scared of America.

      • Manuel Flores Escobar

        But he deploy SAM system to avoid airstrike vs Turkish backed forces…meanwhile in Deir Ezzor no SAM are deployed!

      • velociraptor

        do not dream

    • Ronald

      Not only S-400 , but a Russian air force base to back it up .

  • RichardD

    Once the desert pocket south of the highway to DE is cleared, there won’t be much west of the river away from border areas left to clear. The pocket outside Damascus will be all that remains in the interior. Some of the border areas may be problematic due to being supplied by regime change supporters. But with some work the regime change forces can be pushed back over the borders into the countries that they came from.

    My guess is that the Turks will work the northern SDF areas, and the Russians will provide air cover east of the river to support government ground forces expanding the government foot print on the east side of the river that they established when they reclaimed DE and Al Bukamal. And the Jews and their collaborators will waste more American money on a failing secession attempt, just like they did on the failed regime change attempt west of the river.

      I think Putin has a much better idea of what is going on than you ever will. He’s not sitting at a keyboard viewing things simplistically without having a clue as to what the situation really is, like you are. He has lives that depend on what he does. All out war benefits all the wrong people. He dealt with Erdo much better than the US has been able to…and never had to fire a shot. That should be a clue as to who is in the drivers seat. The Russians never back down on a statement and they make them as part of a legal argument and to be on record. They are always 10 steps ahead.

  • RussG

    Mr. Lavrov, I respect you highly. But I hate to tell you, the US is not taking your warnings seriously. There have been so many “warnings” about the illegal activities of the US in Syria, that the US now just shrugs them off. Your warnings will have to have a real threat, such as, “any attack on the Syrian Arab Army in Syria by illegal forces will be subject to Russian counterattack”. I believe a Russian General stated as much in 2017.

    • Steve Bell

      Hopefully, what this Russian General said will become official Russian govt. policy, as there’s no point in trying to behave in a civilised way with the U.S. war-addicts. They need to be made aware of the painful results of their addiction.

  • hvaiallverden

    Yup, intresting days indeed.

    And meanwhile over at the open free range asylum, formerly known as the Imperial banana republic uSSa, they whine about Russian trolls, buhu, and of course, the problems for the establishment to sell their utter bollocks to the masses, witch of course is their version of everything, incl Syria.
    What makes it so hilarious, is that despite crystal clear international laws, laws that dates back to the stone age, their reality, like the coup in Ukraine, even when everybody knows that, even when after several international orgs, whom monitored the referendum, even when the same questions have been brought up during pre-referndum days up to the present shows the same result, like the Catalans, they whine about an Russian coup/invasion of Crimea that never happened, and the resluts speaks for them self, its called moFo democracy, Wankees, remember that one, huh American idiots.

    Even when their presence is contradicting, ignoring, and despite the clear boundary’s of war fare and respect of onternational rules, and sactions, (killing 500 000 Iraqi children and they just laughed ad claimed it was worth it), invasions for whatever reason they can muster, it never the less illegal and everybody knows this, crimes against humanity in scaled nobody have done before, and I dont give an rats ass for their so called Reasons, but instead we beat the shit out of each others with drivel dating decades back, like the ww2, but nobody debates the genocides going on as we speak.
    Again, Libya etc, to Syria/Yemen, where the Kurds is cleaning the land of anyone whom isnt a Kurd, and then claim its theirs, its so obvious is downright jaw dropping and nobody talks about that either, like the rape and plunder of Palestine, the Kurds are equally rotten as the Joojos in ISISrael.
    And you wounder why the western prestitutes and whorespondents writes exclusively about the Kurds and their “problems” alone, huh, how dumb is it possible to be.

    Yeah, where are the ugh…… leftards, the protectors of humanity, since we are just Nazis or something like that, right Lavrov.
    Now you are an embarrassment.
    Everybody knows about whom is doing what, nothing new.

    Balls, Lavrov, is the problem and the Wankees knows this, the only way to stop them is to kick them in the nuts, or face, punch hard and without mercy, they have shown non, so why bother, just wipe them out.
    That, Lavrov, would be the end of this stupid theater, like the primitive freaks in Tel-aviv, the new acid house of the century, tripping and sees Iranians all over the place, that, is an deceases, and they should be treated that way, as insane people.
    But of curse you can back, back all the way to Russia, but the war will come, sooner or later, nothing so far have changed anything, other than solidifying the Full spectrum Dominance doctrine, of chopping Arab lands into smithereens.
    And the Arabs looks more preoccupy with plundering each others than anything else, like the utterly bonkers Saudi-Barbarians and the sick scums in UAE/etc.

    Yeah, trust, funny word isnt it.
    The road to hell is always pawed with good intentions, never forget that.

    peace
