Syrien: Russland schlägt internationale Koalition zur Entminung Palmyras vor

Man könnte es zynisch nennen - oder realpolitisch denkend. Russland, seinerseits bereits heute Schuld an Tausenden nicht-explodierten Kriegsresten in Syrien, möchte mit einer internationalen Koalition die historische Stätten um Palmyra von explosiven Kriegsresten befreien. (auf Englisch)

Russia suggests that an international coalition should be set up for demining operations in Syria, Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Yevgeny Zagainov said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.

"Syria is the only place in the world where the need for demining is so strong," he said following the adoption of a resolution for the protection of heritage. According to the Russian diplomat, the legendary city of Palmyra has become a symbol of the hard times that the Syrian people have been going through. "The jewel of the human civilization was first seized by terrorists but then liberated again. Our duty is to help restore this historic site for the sake of Syrians and the whole world," Zagainov stressed.

He added that Palmyra, turned "into a place of executions and crimes" by militants, "is full of mines and unexploded shells" which "prevents experts from assessing the scale of destruction and "restoring what can be restored."
