Russia slams Syria opposition support
BEIJING, July 27 (Xinhuanet) --Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has accused some countries of fuelling the violence in Syria by supporting the opposition and attempting to oust the country’s leader. He said that while the fighting continues, there could be no talk of humanitarian corridors and security zones in the beleaguered country.
Lavrov made his latest comments in Moscow after meeting his Serbian counterpart Vuk Jeremic.
Sergey Lavrov said, "We are proposing things that would allow an immediate end to the violence. But the other party says. "No. Either the regime capitulates, or we continue to support the armed struggle of the opposition through various - including material - means. They justify the terrorists’ attacks. While such support continues, what sort of humanitarian actions can we discuss?"

Well looks like there won't be any progress with Russia until the West stops arming and funding the terrorist gangs.

1. Do they know that both sides have ruled out any peaceful solution?
The Assad-regime has said, it won't stop until the rebels are dead.
The rebels have said, they won't stop until the regime is toppled.
So what's the russian proposal? Wait until every rebel is dead and then negotiate with Assad? Negotiate what?
Jihadists of all kind are pouring into Syria to support the sunni rebels (don't forget: Al-Qaeda is sunni, too), but I say, let's choose the lesser of two evils and support the side that commits fewer mass-murders.
