Russia to Help Palestine Become Independent State

Russia to Help Palestine Become Independent State

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will help Palestine in achieving its goal of becoming an independent state with the capital in East Jerusalem, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Saturday in his address to the Arab League summit participants.

“Russia will continue contributing to the attainment of this goal [Palestine’s independence], working through bilateral channels and through multilateral channels, including in the ‘Quartet’ of international mediators,” Putin said.

The Quartet comprising Russia, the United States, the United Nations and the European Union, was established in 2002, aiming to reach a long-term peace agreement between Israel and Palastinians.

1. Russian government propaganda piece?

 

Sputnik is an international multimedia news service launched on 10 November 2014 by Rossiya Segodnya, an agency wholly owned and operated by the Russian government, which was created by a Decree of the President of Russia on 9 December 2013.[1] Sputnik replaces the RIA Novosti news agency on an international stage (which remains active in Russia)[2] and Voice of Russia.

3. No, I was only commenting on the source, not the content

 

Government-controlled media can tend to paint the government in a particular light.

5. Not really

i think we all know what an article from Sputnik is worth.
Nothing to refute.
Not worth the effort of reading it at all.

9. Good for you. I would imagine that somebody that is a tireless supporter of Israel

 


might think twice about what you read WRT Russia and the Mid East.

But then I forget that It is you that I am writing to.

6. People might not be aware that the source is Russian government controlled

18. You don't think it's important

14. you could be right, but this fits Putin's process.

He is returning Russia to a full blown imperial power. Setting up the Palastinians as a client state through which he can pros the US, and even use in proxy wars fits.

15. Putin's Russia helps itself to expand its power.

They would happily use a Palastinian State as they have used others.

12. But if he sees it as advantageous then he can always screw with the UN as well.
