The Klintsevich: the coalition is trying to turn Raqqa in Central Syria, free from Assad


MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Franz Klintsevich believes that the allocation of funds for humanitarian assistance to the people of Raqqa coalition led by the United States is trying to create a new center of Syria outside the control of its President Bashar al-Assad. This opinion was expressed by the Senator to journalists on Sunday.

According to him, the urgent allocation of millions of dollars and euros Rakka is another example of the application of a coalition led by the United States of double standards in Syria, the example of division on its strangers.

“It is clear that behind all this lies an obvious political background. And it is not only the desire of the allies to quickly cover up the traces of the barbaric bombing of its aircraft. In my opinion, there is, first of all, the separatist attempts to turn Raqqa into the center of another Syria – Syria outside the control of Bashar al-Assad. For this purpose and money allocated, and the restoration of peaceful life in the city is just a pretext,” – said Klintsevich.

Earlier it was reported that the UK has allocated £10 million ($13.2 million) in humanitarian assistance to the civilian population of the Syrian city of raqqa, liberated from the militants of the terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia). The assault on Raqqa began on 6 June. The terrorists were surrounded in the Central part of the city on September 21, but had a fierce resistance. Before the final stage of the operation, civilians had largely fled Raqqa.

Coalition “Forces of democratic Syria” at a press conference in raqqa officially announced the liberation of the city from the militants on October 20. In the defense Ministry compared the bombing Raqqa coalition with the destruction of Dresden in 1945.
