Photo: Brendan McDermid/Reuters Russia convokes the UN Security Council for urgent consultations in the Syrian Idlib, the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Ryabkov has reported. "We have requested urgent consultations of the Security Council. We on this action will look in eyes to representatives of western "three" and we will point before them all this situation. In my opinion, to all it is already extremely clear what games are played by our opponents, including from Washington. I think, the ability to open these plans and to expose them is rather indicative for all" — TASS cites words of the Russian deputy minister. The Syrian Idlib has again appeared on the verge of a hot phase of the conflict. Against the background of warnings of Moscow of possible chemical provocation messages according to which Russia and the USA draw up naval forces to the region arrive. The Russian military brag of the largest group during operation from ten ships, the majority of which are equipped with the Calibre rockets, and two submarines. Moscow has also accused Washington of tightening to the region of destroyers with cruise missiles — in the Pentagon it was disproved, but have emphasized that can always strike blow to Bashar al-Assad's forces in case of use of chemical weapon. The London NPO "Syrian center of monitoring of respect for human rights" reports about closing of army check points on border of oppositional territories. Whether it is possible to consider offensive at Idlib inevitable?

And the armed oppositional groups either are given, or leave this area, or even as it was in the southern zone of a de-escalation, part of them come over to the side of the Syrian army. Approach of the Syrian army isn't something like that that is solved specifically. There is a difficult situation, and it will be solved not in such rectilinear way". Formally Idlib — still only remained "de-escalation zone" under control of the non Kurdish opposition. At the same time, even agreeing not to touch such territories a year ago, al-Assad and the Syrian authorities haven't stopped rhetoric about need at any cost to restore control over all Syrian lands. For example, charges of firing of government forces which also so regularly sound from Damascus can be the cause for approach. Or, for example, notorious chemical provocation which without presentation of proofs have announced in the Russian Ministry of Defence. It can lead nearly to the direct conflict between military of Russia and the USA, the candidate of political sciences major general of a stock Sergey Kanchukov:sergey Kan continues
