Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Defense Vladimir Komoyedov ruled out holding a Russian land operation in Syria.
«It’s out of the question about land operation in Syria, — said Komoyedov on Tuesday. — It is clearly stated».
«As far as possible attempts by Russian citizens for economic reasons, or based on ideological views, to penetrate into the territory of Syria, Iraq, Libya and other countries in the region covered by the turmoil and war through the fault of «far-sighted» policy of the United States, and to take part in the fighting are prevented by the Russian competent authorities, to the best of my knowledge», — he said.
«And rightly so», — added the chairman of the committee.
