Putin: 600 Russians and Europeans are Fighting in Syria

The Russian President Vladimir Putin said yesterday that at least 600 persons from Europe and Russia are fighting along the terrorists in Syria at a plenary meeting of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and the Russian President is sure correct in his statement.

If Russia does not know about it, who should then know it besides the Syrian government in Damascus? One cannot believe the used propaganda in the West about the situation within Syrian borders.

While the Russian President Vladimir Putin has not mentioned any source for the figure of at least 600 Europeans and Russians who are fighting in Syria in the ranks of the terrorists and jihadists for an Islamist state and their masters in the West, it is already known by a statement of the Russian Federal Security Service from May this year, that at least 200 mercenaries from the former Soviet Union and also Europe are in Syria.

Russia’s Federal Security Service published the statement in May that about 200 militants and mercenaries from Europe and the former Soviet Union were fighting in the conflict in Syria alongside the terrorist and so-called “democratic rebels”. If these mercenaries and guys are democratic, why don`t invite some al-Nusra guys to France or Britain?

After such intense battles, they probably would deserve some holidays and, to be honest, don’t they fight in the sense of these European governments, while these so-called democratic European states sponsor and support these jihadists in order to implement their “agenda” on Syria and the Middle East?

Russian President Vladimir Putin has also reiterated the position of Russia at his speech in this plenary meeting of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday. He stated, for example, that the arming of the “rebels in Syria” and the delivery of weapons to them would “have an unpredictable effort”.

Of course, it is clear that Russia is not interested in more armed jihadists and Islamists near to the Russian borders due to the reason that they already have enough “problems” to care with these armed jihadists on their soil. In addition, it is almost funny that Russia is able to fight these religious fanatics while Western media is not yet boosting the propaganda against Russia and Putin by using the daily crackdown and killing of these jihadists on Russian soil by specialized Russian forces – with all means.

Russia`s President also noted that an important key group in the (so-called) Syrian opposition, Jabhat al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front), had been designated by Washington as a terrorist organization linked to al-Qaida.

Vladimir Puton also said the following quote at this meeting yesterday:

“Why should weapons be supplied to illegal organizations in Syria whose composition is not fully clear to us? (…) How can weapons be supplied to these oppositionists? Where will they [these weapons] end up as a result? What role will they play?” (Putin)
