Report informs citing svpressa.ru, it was stated by professor of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Doctor of Political Sciences, member of the Scientific Council of the Russian Security Council Andrei Manoilo.
"For many years, this conflict has existed in a frozen state. No dynamics were observed. Then suddenly the spring flare-up occurred. And it happened because the United States decided to respond in such a way to the fact that we did not allow them to perform their plan on overthrowing President Bashar al-Assad in Syria", - he said.
