The US has caused an environmental disaster in Syria. This was stated by the First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Dmitry Polyansky.
The Russian side believes that the emergency is taking place in the territories “where the Americans steal oil.”
“I would like to use the meeting to highlight the disastrous situation that is developing in general in the northeast of Syria, which is still illegally occupied by the United States,” the Russian representative said. He pointed out that the UN does not give any assessment of the situation. Polyansky added that “an ecological disaster is unfolding in areas where the US is openly stealing oil.”
According to Polyansky, the disaster covered the territory beyond the Euphrates River. He pointed out that the Trans-Euphrates and the al-Tanf zone are a gray spot on the map of Syria. According to the deputy representative, the militants of “Magavir al-Saura” feel their impunity and permissiveness with the “light hand of the States.”
