The Chairman of the International Affairs Committee of the State Duma Alexei Pushkov on his social network page expressed his surprise that there were only two countries in the international community – Saudi Arabia and Ukraine, which condemned the Russian air strikes on the positions of the terrorist organization “Islamic state” in Syria.
According to Pushkov, there is no justification for countries, speaking in defense of ISIS.
“Only Saudi Arabia and Ukraine have condemned our actions in Syria. A strange “coalition”. They will not find support among the international public opinion. It is impossible to defend ISIS,” – wrote Pushkov on Twitter.
In addition, Pushkov recalled the words of U.S. President Barack Obama at the UN General Assembly in New York, when he stated that the US does not want to isolate Russia. Obama “forgot to add: it can not”, – said Pushkov.
