The Syrians express thanks to Russia who is fighting terrorism in Syria, defending peace and the international legitimacy, whereas the U.S. President, on the contrary, seeks to destroy Yemen, Syria and Iraq in the name of the international legitimacy
(SANA) ~ Branches of the National Union of Syrian Students in several Arab and foreign countries staged on Sunday events outside the Russian embassies and consulates expressing appreciation for Russia’s support to Syria in its war against terrorism.
Held as part of a series of similar events carried out in cooperation with the Syrian embassies and the Syrian communities in a number of countries across the world, the stands aim at showing thanks and gratitude to Russia for its firm position in support of Syria and its direct involvement in the fight against terrorism in the country.
On September 30, the Russian Air Force, acting upon a Syrian request, started air strikes against terrorist positions in the Syrian territory, destroying dozens of field camps, ammunition depots and command centers for the terrorist organizations.
Holding posters of President Bashar al-Assad and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the participants in Tehran event chanted slogans expressing heartfelt thanks to Russia and its leadership.
Head of Tehran branch of the Students Union, along with a group of students, handed the Russian Ambassador in Tehran Levan Dzhagaryan a letter of thanks in which they valued Russia’s “courageous stance” in support of the Syrian people and its “wise policy” and understanding of the growing threat of terrorism.
Ambassador Dzhagaryan, for his part, reaffirmed Russia’s unwavering support for the Syrian people and President al-Assad, stressing his country’s rejection of any foreign interference in the Syrian internal affairs.
He pointed out that his country’s support for the Syrian legitimate government is in line with the international law and is aimed at fighting terrorism that has become a threat to the whole region and the world and not just Syria.
In Canberra, the Russian Consul Natalia Nefedova was handed a letter of appreciation from the Syrian students and representatives of Australian civil associations and parties taking part in the event.
The letter hailed Russia’s “serious” attitude in fighting terrorism and its principled supportive stance for the Arab issues, mainly the Palestinian Cause.
A gathering also took place outside the Russian Embassy in the Lebanese capital Beirut to show appreciation for the Russian support.
The participants in the gathering raised the Syrian, Russian and Palestinian flags and photos of President al-Assad and President Putin and of Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
Members of the Palestinian Fatah al-Intifada Movement expressed solidarity with Syria, as it is the main supporter of the Palestinian cause.
The Syrian students and community in Russia organized a stand where the participants gathered in the area extending from Leo Tolstoy Square in Moscow to the Headquarters of the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.
Some of the banners raised in the event read “Together for fighting Terrorism” and “Thanks Putin” in the Russian and Arabic languages.
“The Syrians want to express thanks to Russia who is fighting terrorism in Syria and is defending peace and the international legitimacy, whereas the U.S. President, on the contrary, seeks to destroy Yemen, Syria and Iraq in the name of the international legitimacy,” said Jean Michael, one of the Syrian participants.
Russia, another participant said, has proved that it is “more courageous and more loyal than many of the Arabs who have let Syria down and conspired against it.”
In the same context, “Syria and Russia are allies, and they won’t lose the battle,” read the banners held by the participants in the event organized in Prague, the Czech capital.
The participants considered that the participation of the Russian Air Force in confronting terrorism side by side with the Syrian Arab Army has enhanced the steadfastness of Syria and effectively contributed to fighting terrorism and its supporters.
The effectiveness of the Russian airstrikes, they said, has unmasked the West’s false claims about fighting ISIS through the US-led coalition.
Meanwhile, the Syrian students and community in India held a solidarity stand outside the Russian Embassy in New Delhi, where the participants observed a moment of silence in honor of the martyrs’ souls.
The acting Charge d’affairs of the Russian Embassy in New Delhi said Russia will continue its support to Syria in fighting terrorism, making clear that the Russian-Syrian cooperation defends the interests of the peoples of both countries.
In France, the Syrian community held a solidarity stand in Marseille City, called for by the Syrian-French Solidarity Association.
Member of the Syrian Expatriates Forum in the World, Rima al-Jleifawi, said the event came to express the Syrians’ welcoming of Russia’s decision to engage in the fight against terrorism in Syria in support of the Syrian army.
She underlined the importance of such events particularly in light of the misleading practiced by Western media, including the French, to smear the Russian military operation in Syria.
In the meantime, a delegation of the Syrian Students Union-Egypt branch– visited the headquarters of the Russian Embassy in Cairo, and handed a shield to the Second Secretary of the Embassy Maxim Rubin in appreciation of the Russian efforts against terrorism.
Hundreds of Syrian students and expatriates also expressed thanks to Russia in an event held outside the Russian Embassy in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava.
The event also saw the participation of representatives of the Slovak-Russian Friendship Association, the Leftist Youth Front and the Communist Party of Slovakia.
In Malaysia, the Syrian students and community participating in the event in front of the Russian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur described Russia’s supportive stance towards Syria and its decision to get involved in the fight against terrorism as a “heroic” position that “will make a historical shift.”
The participants presented a souvenir and a letter of thanks and appreciation to the Russian Embassy as a token of their deep gratitude.
The Russian Embassy in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus received a letter of thanks addressed to President Putin in appreciation of his “historic stance” towards the Syrian people.
A similar event was held outside the Russian Embassy in Bucharest, Romania, where many Syrian students and expatriates delivered a letter to the Russian Embassy in which they expressed their deepest gratitude for Russia and its president.
Syrians in Algeria also expressed their deep thanks to Russia for its fight against the takfiri terrorism targeting Syria.
On October 13th, thousands of Syrian citizens gathered in front of the Russian Embassy in Damascus in a similar gesture to express gratitude to Russia.
Rallies Supporting Russia’s Operation in Syria Held Across Europe, Mideast
(Sputnik) ~ Rallies supporting Russia’s operation in Syria have been held Sunday in European and Middle Eastern states, including Berlin, Lebanon, Hungary and Serbia.
Members of Germany’s Syrian community gathered outside the Russian embassy in Berlin on Sunday to express their gratitude to the Russian people for Moscow’s support in the Syrian war against terrorism.
“We gathered here today in front of the Russian embassy because Russia is part of a coalition, which is fighting for peace in Syria, against war and terrorism everywhere in the world… We want to thank all Russians and President Vladimir Putin for their participation in the fight against terrorism and fascism in the Middle East,” Radi Skandav, one of the participants of Sunday’s rally, told RIA Novosti.
Russia’s Sukhoi Su-25, Su-24M and Su-34 attack aircraft, with the support of Su-30 jets, have been conducting precision airstrikes against ISIL targets in Syria since September 30, following a request from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“All these terrorists are fighting under the same banners and pronouncing the same slogans. To us, Syrians, all these people who took up arms against the Syrian people and the Syrian state and army are not an opposition. They are all members of groups financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar and sent to Syria to destroy our country, education, medicine, our very life.”
“The Syrians want none of this… We want to have a modern democratic state where we will enjoy equal rights and live in peace, enjoy genuine freedom and democracy. We do not want any Islamization of Syria,” Radi Skandav emphasized.
Similar rallies have also been held outside Russian diplomatic missions in Belarus, Lebanon, Romania, Hungary, Serbia and India, where the participants expressed their heartfelt gratitude for Russia’s assistance to the Syrian people’s fight against terrorism.
“We gathered to express support for the Russian government in the fight against terrorism. We can not be satisfied with the policy of the United States and the European Union in the Middle East because they are acting only in their own interests, maybe for access to oil and gas, they are destroying the region,” Syrian student Lamak Cooder told a RIA Novosti correspondent in Belgrade.
