In the four years since the presence of Russian air forces in Syria, much has been achieved, but most importantly, Syria was saved as a country.
We are told that Ukraine is not “waging civil war”. Because Russia supports separatists in the East. There are also accusations that Russian soldiers fought with them.
But even if Russia were to decide tomorrow to send several thousand soldiers to the Ukrainian front in all openness or to provide air support, it would actually remain a “civil war” in Ukraine.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine, attempting to portray it as a civil war. It disregards the extensive factual evidence confirming ongoing Russian military presence in Donbas.
The war in eastern Ukraine is not a civil conflict, but an act of aggression by the Russian armed forces, that continues since February 2014.
