MOSCOW, January 13. U.S. President Barack Obama “badly dreaming”, having written off Syria from the orbit of influence of Russia. This opinion was expressed by first Deputy Chairman of state Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Kalashnikov, commenting on the appeal of the American leader to the us Congress.
Obama: Ukraine and Syria are leaving the orbit of Russia’s influence
Barack Obama, in his annual message “About country position” with which he acted the day before U.S. Congress, said that Ukraine and Syria are leaving the orbit of Russia’s influence. “Despite the fact that its economy is shrinking, Russia is pouring resources to “prop up” Ukraine and Syria – States that she sees leaving her orbit,” said he.
“Obama is much dreaming particularly in Syria and wishful thinking. In Syria our influence much more than US influence,” – says Kalashnikov. In his opinion, the President of the United States “very vividly tries to show the voter that the United States intervened and gave the hands of Russia, and Russia is now fled from Syria and Ukraine.” “Again, this tactic is called wishful thinking,” said the Deputy head of the Committee.
“What specifically is referring to Obama, saying that these countries withdrew from the zone of our interests, I don’t understand,” said Kalashnikov.
