“The United States sent its troops into the territory of Syria without the permission of the legitimate government of this Republic, and all their actions similar to the actions of the occupiers. Their fight against ISIS* were false – they did not bomb the terrorists, and under the guise of experienced new ammunition and missiles. American presence in Syria would be a Ghost, if not base, are they justified there. They captured several regions, saturated enormous reserves of oil, tied to these areas, their units and began to pump Syrian oil and sell it. In fact, they are engaged in smuggling. If you look at a map of natural resources of Syria, you’ll find that their base is tied to the “fat” of the oil-bearing areas. This delays the (President Donald) trump (in his decision to withdraw troops from Syria – ed.). According to international rules this is an obvious occupation.
