Syrian President Bashar al-Assad believes that the US will do everything to overthrow the current government in his country. He stated this in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“Their goal is to change the government, to overthrow the government and insert their puppets, so they will do everything that the end justifies the means: no values, no morals no. Can happen anything,” stated Assad.
Previously on April 21, Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov has condemned attempts to change the Syrian regime. “I think this is a very serious situation because it is now apparent that the false information that chemical weapons were used by the Syrian government, is used in order to move away from the implementation of resolution 2254 [UN Security Council], which provides a political settlement with the participation of all Syrian parties, and to switch to a long-cherished idea of regime change”, he said.
Two days earlier, Lavrov said that Russia considers the incident with the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheyhun as a provocation aimed at undermining the ceasefire and the political process in the country.

Trump also criticized Moscow for supporting Assad. “If Russia came and supported this animal, there wouldn’t be problems,” he said.
