Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on Information Policy and Interaction with the Media Alesei Pushkov says former US President Barack Obama misjudged the situation around Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad in 2012.
“After Moscow, this is already Bashar al-Assad’s second visit to the UAE. Of Syria’s isolation in the Arab world, horns and paws have remained. Obama, who affirmed in March 2012 that “the Assad’s days are numbered’>, ended up with a nose, or, to use modern slang, ‘flowing around’>. Syria survived. Russia’s role in this is invaluable,” said writes Pushkov on his Telegram channel.
On the eve of Assad said that Damascus recognizes the new Russian borders, taking into account the joined territories – the people’s republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions.
The Syrian president arrived on a visit to Moscow on March 14. During a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, he announced his support for the Russian special operation in Ukraine.
