For his part, Russian National Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev reiterated Russia’s continued support for Syria in the fight against terrorism, pointing out that Western countries are obstructing the fight against terrorism and using it as a tool in an attempt to impose their hegemony on the region.
