BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – During a speech at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the audience that his government’s patience is running out in regards to the situation in Syria’s Idlib Governorate.

Lavrov said Russia’s patience is running thin regarding the Idlib situation while highlighting the importance of eliminating all terrorist elements from this governorate in northwestern Syria.

The Russian Foreign Minister continued that Russia, Turkey, and Iran agreed on February 14th that the situation in the Idlib Governorate would be handled by a “step-by-step” process.

He pointed out that a well-thought-out plan will be put in place to save the lives of the civilians, adding that Russia, Iran, and Turkey will not do as the United States did when it destroyed Raqqa city under the pretext of fighting the terrorist organization of Daesh.

Russia has often criticized the U.S.’ operations in Mosul and Raqqa for their high-scale destruction and severe loss of life.

Dear Russia, do not hold yourself back now. You have done so much already. Idlib needs to be cleared of shitlamist groups in any case. Do not give in to the pressure from Turki.

You have helped SAA & SAF and retaken almost all major provinces from various terrorist organizations. Now this final push is a must. Otherwise the momentum built up will lose steam.

Well, Russia can’t be said having a light hand too, let’s talk about Grozny 😉 After all, Aleppo had many moderate rebels, (LOL), ISIS are pure rabid dogs.
Funny fact, he’s not speaking about some other cities which ended with major destructions… Maybe because if US took the air-strike job, battle plans were drawn by an IRGC general and he doesn’t wants to upset his Iranian partners??? 😉

Now seems the Russians are more patient than I am… Maybe have they some hopes in Erdogan… I’m not that naive…
