Romanovich commented on the words of Obama that Washington does not trust Vladimir Putin in the settlement of the Syrian conflict.

“In General, it is the trend now going worldwide, is to blame Russia, ranging from sports to politics. So, in my opinion, there is nothing surprising,” the MP said in comments RIA Novosti.

According to Romanovich, the US policy aims to establish “a kind of chaos in the middle East and benefit from its profits”. For this reason, the United States supports those who obstruct the friends of the Russian forces, he said.

Recall that Obama declared his mistrust of the Russian President on a press-conferences in the Pentagon, which took place on August 4, according to Politico. On this day, American President celebrated his 55th birthday. The politician questioned the fact that Moscow is interested in maintaining the truce in Syria.

“I’m not sure we can trust the Russian side or to Vladimir Putin, so we need to check whether we will be able to achieve a real cessation of hostilities,” said Obama.

According to him, Washington is ready to work with Russia to strengthen efforts to combat the Islamic state (a terrorist organization banned in Russia), but Moscow must show its seriousness. Otherwise, it will show itself “irresponsible player” who supports the regime-killer” (ie Assad).

While the outgoing US President sad joke that, most likely, most of his gray hair is the result of meetings on Syria.
