The President of Russia Vladimir Putin is dissatisfied with the work of Syrian President Bashar. Writes about this “Tape.ru” with reference to the project of Middle East Monitor, tracking the publication of the middle East press and television.
Sources of the Israeli channel Keshet 12 in intelligence, in particular, reported that discontent with Putin’s Syrian counterpart saying appeared in the Russian media publications about corruption in the government of Syria. One of these materials was published in the “Federal news Agency”, which is associated with businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. Newsmaker of the material was made by former Deputy Prime Minister of Syria, Chairman of the Moscow platform of the Syrian opposition, Qadri Jamil, who studied in the USSR.
The Israeli media drew attention to the statement of Ambassador Alexander Aksenenko that while the truce “in Damascus is not particularly inclined to exercise reasonable foresight and flexibility, still betting on a military solution with the support of allies and receiving unconditional economic and financial aid”.
According to journalists, such publication could not appear without instructions from the administration of the Russian President. Israeli media believe that these articles say that Moscow does not have patience against Assad and his “incompetent administration.”
“Russia is completely dissatisfied with the Syrian regime to cope with the economic crisis, because it creates the impression that he does not obey the instructions, which can lead to a reluctance alone bear the associated costs,” said Syrian political analyst Abdel Wahab Assi in an interview with the Arabic-language Turkish channel TRT Arabi.
Dissatisfaction with the Syrian administration is also associated with difficulties and corruption, faced by the Russian companies operating in the SAR. This opinion was expressed by the journalist Nasr al-Yousef.
