CIA chief: Russia is using Syria scorched-earth policy

The Director of the Central intelligence Agency John Brennan said that Russia has in Syria a scorched earth policy that led to “destruction and deaths of thousands of civilians.”

“The US would never do in any of these military conflicts that the Russians have done in Syria, about partly they used a scorched-earth policy”, – said the head of the CIA, adding that the Russian leadership is ignoring the international rules by playing on the world stage according to the rules of their own.

Brennan expressed his confidence that the Russians consider all representatives of the Syrian opposition terrorists that led to such devastating military action in the region. He added that the US was trying to explain to Russia that Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad is “part of the problem, not the solution”, but Moscow is still going to make an effort to protect “longtime ally”.

As reported TASS, citing the statement by the Director of the CIA, before the arrival of the Russian military contingent in Syria, American intelligence became clear that Assad Moscow is not going to quit.

“The Russians have provided all the opposition as terrorists… And so they took these extremely bold and, in my opinion, in many ways reckless military action, which led to the deaths of so many Syrians,” said Brennan.
