A new statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry urged both sides of Syria’s civil war to work harder on following through with the ceasefire, but made it clear that Russia blames the rebels more than the Assad regime for the violations.
The statement listed a number of attacks by rebels, noting that a number of the factions have adopted the “tactics of terror” in fighting against the government. In recent days, this has included assassinations and bombings.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich also faulted Western governments for arming and financing rebel groups, saying this was making the UN efforts at a negotiated settlement “significantly more difficult.”
The comments are in stark contrast to French statements on the matter, which insisted that the United Nations should prepare to invade Syria on the rebels’ behalf and install them as the new government. Needless to say, Russia will be expected to veto such an effort.

Russia should do everything in its power with China to thwart the terrorist West from making Syria into another Libya. The Western media claims reports by activists/terrorists as being valid when they are just propaganda, and only further the terror exploits of SNC
What a pathetic statement made by the Russians. Putin killed his own people and blamed it on Chechen to win the presidency and to justfy a brutal war against innocent Chechen people which destroyed the country and killed more than 330.00 people in both wars. I am sure the rebel got legitimate targets because they are defending their women and children who have been slaughtered like sheeps by mercenaries from Hizbulla and the Iranian. Russian will pay heavy price because they helped Al-Asad regime with killing machine. Russina need to put their mouths where it belong.
From all reports it would appear that Russia is correct. The greatest advantage of having the UN observers is that the lies of the Western media will not go unchecked. It appears that the Russians and Chinese have drawn a line at Syria and Iran to end the US attempt to totally dominate the Middle East and Central Asia.
That is good for it will stop yet more killing by the Empire and its proxies, like the Syrian terrorists, and establish some balance in the world.
And there is no better leader than Putin in this effort since he observed firsthand the betrayal by Clinton and then W every promise made to Gorbachev by Reagan and Bush I. Never again.
Mainstream media — End effect

CIA corruption is in the process of a military coup in Syria, without much success, and in the meantime Western media is blowing smokescreen confusion into our minds saturated with false logic such as the above thought-control, it being carried around by one so brainwashed.
For those who support the Syrian government, also are they “defending their women and children.” And all the CIA agents of Empire USA, M16 agents of Empire England and Mossad agents of Empire Israel, all now in Syria, in their perverted logic of killing a government and the humans in it, are they not also “defending their women and children”?
