Russia and the United States is not beneficial to the clash in Syria, as they need to maintain the relationship between them. This opinion was expressed in comments “Apostrophe” Russian journalist and publicist Leonid Radzikhovsky.
In his opinion, even shot down Syrian aircraft (once the Turks and the other Americans) will not force Putin to go for the aggravation with the United States in Syria. However, the situation became desperate for the Kremlin…
“Russia got involved because in the Syrian war. And now the loss of face. Same story as with the Donbas: got involved, and now the loss of face. After the Americans shot down the plane – with impunity – of course, Putin within the country (aka inside — a cool, macho), outside cannot leave it unanswered,” said Radzikhovsky, referring to Russia’s withdrawal from the Memorandum with the US on flights in the skies over Syria.
He considers troops in Syria, US and Russia will not face even after the incident with the downed aircraft of Assad’s forces.
“I am sure that there are no direct military confrontation between America and Russia will not. The Americans have decided to change the location of the troops. Both the Americans and the Russians, of course, do not want a head-on collision of American and Russian aircraft. Not even because it is supposedly fraught with thermonuclear war. It absolutely is no war: even if we assume the air battle between American and Russian fighter that is absolutely unbelievable from my point of view, anyway it is still a million miles to the rupture of diplomatic relations and threats of war,” – said the publicist.
The main argument for the two countries is the failure of us-Russian relations, which are needed on both sides.
“Look at how more than carefully with formidable external rhetoric take sanctions against Russia — and so they pack what they want, understand this way or that way. To aggravate relations with Russia just because the Americans, of course, will not. And American pilots and Russian air defense would be to behave very carefully,” he added.
We will remind, on June 19 it became known that the USA shot down a Syrian aircraft, which launched air strikes on rebel forces.
On the same day, Russia announced that it will no longer cooperate with the US in the skies over Syria after coalition forces led by the United States, was shot down in raqqa province military aircraft of the Syrian air force.
