ST PETERSBURG, Russia, Sept 6 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin made clear on Friday that Russia did not want to be sucked into a war over Syria, signalling that Moscow would maintain current levels of support to Damascus in the case of foreign military intervention.
Asked at the end of a Group of Twenty summit whether Russia would help Syria in such circumstances, Putin made no reference to defending the Middle Eastern nation or increasing military assistance.
"Will we help Syria? We will. We are helping them now. We supply weapons, we cooperate in the economic sphere, and I hope we will cooperate more in the humanitarian sphere ... to provide help for those people - civilians - who are in a difficult situation today," Putin said.
He echoed comments by other Russian officials who have said Moscow will not allow itself to be drawn into the conflict.
The Russians should not be taken lightly as the strike could be converted to full-fledged WW III and all the loss of life and property would be placed on the shoulders of US.
The matter would then be destruction and not of deterrent of use of gas to kill human beings. This war is likely to make the existence of some small country questionable, as everything would be fair in war, love and politics. This War may appear in many forms and would add up the destruction of property and increase the death figure. .
Russia may not play the game overtly but cannot deny if it plays the game from behind the scene. The war would be difficult one, which might continue until money starts speaking and sink in global recession once again. Therefore, first keep the money in the bank because none would get enough time to keep any account of anything.
One could visualize things that none could even imagine in the wildest dream would happen. As beyond this the warring parties would have to experience practically either by living or by dyeing. Request remains do not doubt it.
