Could I please implore you all to consider emailing the Russian Embassy to voice your concern about Russia's continued lack of support for UN resolutions to resolve the situation in Syria. While Russia (and China) continue to block attempts to resolve this humanitarian crisis, more people continue to get maimed, tortured and killed. If you do email them then you will get a boiler-plate BS response and so please persevere and pick the response to pieces and email them back again. I'd like to see their email inbox implode with dissent.
If you read the BS on Russia's foreign policy here http://www.rusemb.org.uk/foreignpolicy/271 then you will see that Russia continues to be the most egregious hypocrite of the worst order. For example, they state
we would like to reiterate our principled and consistent stance against unilateral sanctions against Syria. We regard them as the implementation of actions that violate the sovereignty of states, the principle of noninterference in internal affairs,
Two words. South Ossetia. You might even throw in Chechnya if so minded.
No, there are three reasons why Russia is refusing to support the UN. They have three vested interests in continuing to support the Assad regime.
First - OIL. Not buying it but selling it to the Syrians and at inflated prices.
Second - ARMS SALES. Russia is Syria's number one supplier.
They did say that they intended to suspend new arms sales. Confirmation of this statement is missing. The Russians are remarkably silent on this and no evidence to suggest that they are going to honour this.
So please ask them if there is any truth in this announcement to suspend new arms sales
And lastly, TARTUS. Tartus is Russia's last naval base in the region and saves them the time and effort in having to sail back to the Black Sea. It also serves as a staging post for any militaristic ambitions they may have.
So please do consider emailing them. The email address is below.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
