The President of Russia Vladimir Putin made a proposal to the Federation Council to agree to the use of Armed forces power abroad. The upper chamber of Parliament gave a positive response, allowing the use of the army on the ground in Syria.
The Federation Council unanimously confirmed the request of Vladimir Putin to use the Armed forces of the Russian Federation abroad, said the head of the presidential administration Sergei Ivanov. 162 senators voting in favour, abstentions and not voted against it.
With all this question about the use of the army abroad, on Syria, said Ivanov. The view was also expressed that earlier with the request for assistance to the Russian Federation addressed the legitimate President of the Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad, reports Russia Today.
With all this, Ivanov stressed that the middle East will be used only Military-air forces of Russia. "It's not about achieving any foreign policy goals, fulfilling any ambitions, what we regularly blame our Western partners, and we are talking only about the national interests of the Russian Federation", - said Sergey Ivanov.
It turns out the terrorist group "Islamic state" lured on own side thousand Russian citizens and immigrants from CIS countries, who then return home where they continue to destabilize the situation. "Therefore, advisable to be proactive and act on distant frontiers, and not to deal with this problem later in Russia", - said the Manager of the presidential administration.
Sergei Ivanov reminded among others that a number of Western States already causing air strikes on areas of Syria. But they, unlike Russia, has not received any requests from the authorities of powers on the provision of military assistance. "The fundamental difference in our case and in the approach of our Western partners is that they do not comply with international law, and we obey," stressed Ivanov.
"All of our partners and allies would like to emphasise that at the present time (September 30. - Approx. ed.) will be informed of the decision, and the military departments will likely be sent and a kind of information," he said. With all this, all social and economic measures related to the supply of the domestic war in Syria, have already been taken.
