As usual, Putin has again denied that Rusia has done anything wrong with its attacks in Aleppo recently ! This was confirmed by Vitaly Churkin, Russia's UN Ambassador who said all of Russia's strikes are "carefully targeted" !
Reports of the damage caused by bombs in Aleppo are horrifying ! They reveal whole neighbourhoods which have been totally destroyed and rubble being sifted to recover any surviving residents !
Russia regularly uses its United Nation Veto to prevent any proper inspection which could lead to a prosecution.
Russian citizens are protected and totally unaware of what is going on in the Middle East. Does Russia have a Refugee Problem ? How many Syrian Refugees have fled to Russia ? Do they understand Putin's aims in Syria ?
What hurts Russians is the lack of Western goods in their shops ! Also, the cost of living is rising and the parity of the Rouble is weakening. Foreign currency reserves are used to protect the Rouble, but they are now getting low.
Putin hopes that the rise of World Petrol Prices will help Russian Exports. The West will certainly try to dampen his hopes by importing from other countries !
