US air strikes on Syria will not change the situation in Syria

SYRIA (OBSERVATORY) –┬áMissile strikes by the United States, Britain and France on Syria will not lead to consequences either in the military or diplomatic terms, says Andrei Northeast European University professor Andrey Korotaev.

“The military consequences (the US and allies’ blows) for the development of the situation in Syria are close to zero, they can not change the military situation in Syria, it is now clear that the military superiority is on the side of Damascus.” The Syrian military controls more than 2/3 of the country’s territory ” , – said Korotaev during the round table in the MIA “Russia Today”.

According to the political scientist, after the coalition’s attack, it is unlikely that other offensive actions against the government forces of the UAR will follow.

“Therefore, in military terms, the consequences for the development of the military situation in Syria are zero, diplomatically, too.” It is understandable that such actions make Damascus go to Geneva talks on American terms is absolutely unrealistic, “the professor stressed.

On April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France hit rockets on Syria. More than 100 missiles were fired at government facilities, which Western countries believe are used to manufacture chemical weapons. Most of the missiles were shot down by the Syrian air defense systems.
