Russian Official: Iran, Russia Fighting Terrorists and Tyrants in Syria
Just like Imam Hussein (AS) and his companions many centuries ago, Iranian and Russian armed forces are fighting various terrorist groups and tyrants of the time in Syria in collaboration with Syrian Army and Hezbollah.
Stating the above to reporters Sunday in Tehran on the sidelines of the International Press Exhibition, Veronika Krasheninnikova of RT (Rossiya Segodnya) said just like Imam Hossein (AS), the late Imam Khomeini said no to the tyrants of our time who are Wahhabi terrorists and their co-founders in the region and the West.
Krashennikova, who is also a member of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation and head of the Center for International Journalism and Research at the International News Agency (INA), went on to maintain that Russian and Iranian forces are standing in the way of those tyrants in Syria under the guidelines and lofty principles of Imam Hussein (AS).
According to the Russian official and political commentator, Russian military leaders and people respect and value the presence and efforts of Iranian fighters in Syria, particularly their Commander Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, who are defending the war-torn Arab nation and its holy sites against various terrorist groups.
Elsewhere in her remarks, she warned Iranian and Russian media outlets to stay vigilant and not lose the digital media warfare launched by corporate media in the West, as failure to reach the targeted audiences will only lead to military confrontation.
According to Krashennikova, Afghanistan and Iraq had no WMDs and no links to terrorists, but the West with help from certain Arab states went ahead and invaded those nations. They even invaded Syria on the pretext of democracy. However, Iran and Russia have what it takes to end the illegal war and save Syria, and indeed they are fighting back.
In conclusion, the Russian official called for closer cooperation between the two countries’ media outlets, arguing that there are no boundaries to this end and their audiences don't need to search for news elsewhere. She maintained that Reuters, BBC and CNN will never publish or cover positive news about Iran and Russia, much less their lawful military involvement in Syria.
