A statement saying that Russia allegedly uses in Syria of “scorched earth tactics” shows that Washington is trying to spread “a straw for the future.” So the words of the head of the CIA John Brennan has commented the official representative of the Ministry of defense of Russia Igor Konashenkov.

He drew attention to the fact that “international coalition” headed by the USA since 2012, it destroyed the infrastructure of Syria to weaken its legitimate government. In turn, this has created a threat to the civilian population.

“Sooner or later all this will have to answer. Therefore, the attempt of Mr. Brennan to spread his statement “straw for the future” is unlikely to save you”, — quotes “RIA Novosti” the words of the representative of the Ministry of defense.

Igor Konashenkov said that the head of the CIA should be known the real results of Russia’s actions in Syria, as they were announced during the final Collegium of the Russian Ministry. In particular, one of the main policy of the Russian Federation was a joint agreement with Iran and Turkey on the cessation of hostilities and the preparations for the talks in Astana.

Earlier Wednesday, the Director of the Central intelligence Agency (CIA), John Brennan saidthat Russia applies in Syria “scorched earth tactics” and “plays by his own rules” on the world stage.
