Russia proposed the draft of the Syrian constitution, which met strong resistance from the Syrian authorities and the opposition. Why the foreign country try to impose its vision of the Basic Law of a state? This is part of the internal affairs of the Syrian citizens.
On the one hand it is true. But in fact, Damascus now badly needs help from outside. International community realizes Assad has no opportunity to resist the pressure without the military support of Moscow. Most likely, he would have the same fate as the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, and his country would lose its integrity and perhaps part of the territory.
Russia demonstrates a strong will to end the conflict in Syria in a democratic way ASAP. In recent years Moscow has indicated that it can achieve its goals in specific regions of the world. The Middle East is no exception.
