Islamists Attack Aleppo. Where the Hell's Russia?

Wasting time at the Geneva Peace Talks, says the sharp-tongued Eduard Limonov.

Unfortunately, the Syrian war has probably been turned around for the second time, though not in our favor.

Today, media report that the Kurdish militia was forced to leave a residential area in Aleppo. Either Assad’s army or the Kurds have already left more than one residential area, and many positions have been lost.

"What the hell are we doing in Geneva?"

A large-scale attack of Aleppo by Al-Nusra and its ISIS allies started almost on the same day the Geneva Peace Talks took place - as a result of the talks!

So where are we?

What is Russia’s Air Force doing? Who are they bombing, if at all? There is either no information, or it’s a mirage.

What the hell are we doing in Geneva?

There are reports that the "Syrian opposition" (the pro-American one…) has marched to Raqqa. And they’re right to crush the Caliphate’s capital.

However, I have a growing suspicion that the Russian leaders agreed with the Americans to leave the way open for them, confining themselves to Lavrov and his tongue: he’s our last fighter, sarcastic and obviously displeased.

The same is true in Donetsk.

Dear leaders, what have you turned the reputation of Russia into?!  Soon we’ll be a laughing stock.

You liberated Palmyra, with its ruins and ghosts, brought Gergiev and Piotrovsky there and threw a party in the amphitheater where jihadists had cut off people’s heads.

Nice... But then you took a wrong turn.
