the Provocative actions

after Receiving data about the impact of the coalition headed by the USA in Deir-ez-Zor, Russia convened an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council. It was held in the night of Sunday Moscow time in the atmosphere of scandal: the representatives of Russia and the USA did not listen to each other. US Ambassador Samantha Power emerged from the hall during the speech of the Russian Ambassador Vitali Churkin called the initiative of Russia, for the convening of the security Council "cynical and hypocritical trick". In its opinion, Moscow should focus on the implementation of the agreements, rather than trying to earn points.

to Journalists, Churkin said that the time and other aspects of the operation indicate that it could well be a provocation" (quoted by TASS). According to Churkin, United States to strike should have waited two days, when the plan to earn a joint Russian-American centre for coordination.

Russian officials insist that the blow to the Assad points to the inability and unwillingness of the USA to separate the moderate opposition from the terrorists, against which to struggle together. "If we had suspicion, and thus to shield the "Nusra", but now, after today's strikes by the Syrian army, we come to the really terrible to the world conclusion: the White house defends ISIS," — said the official representative of the foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

on Saturday, even before the attack on Syrian government forces, the U.S. desire "to preserve combat capabilities in the fight against the legitimate government of President Assad," said Vladimir Putin.

the Position of Russia on Sunday supported Iran. The strike Tehran considers evidence of support of terrorists, said Sunday the foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram qasemi.

the Five-year siege

the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor before the civil war was one of the centers of the oil industry. "Before the war, the city was included into ten the largest cities of the country", — says the head of the St. Petersburg centre of studying of the modern Near East Gumer Isaev.

In 2004, the city and the suburbs population of about 240 thousand people. Near the town is the oil-rich fields that, in 2014, are under the control of the "Islamic state".

the Syrian government since the beginning of armed clashes in 2011, keeps under control the different parts of the city. In a series of attacks from the opposition and "Islamic state" Pro-government forces have lost control over the rest of the province. However, was able to maintain access to the military airfield and arms depots, located in the city.

the Situation in Deir-ez-Zor complicated when terrorists in 2015 took control of Palmyra and blocked the message on the highway Damascus — Palmyra — Deir ez-Zor. After this the Syrian army was resupplied only by air.

as of January (latest available), during the offensive of the "Islamic state" in the city there were about 4 thousand of the Syrian military, which was opposed by more than 2 thousand.

the plans do not refuse

the ceasefire began in Syria on September 12. The truce was made possible after an agreement between Russia and the United States. It does not apply to terrorist groups "Dzhebhat Fattah al-sham" (the former "Dzhebhat EN-Nusra" and "Islamic state".

the Fighting continued in the Northern province of Hama and in HOMS. According to eyewitnesses, the Syrian army continues to inflict artillery strikes on the positions of the "Free Syrian army" (FSA) in these areas.

Russian officials say about the possibility of the preservation and implementation of the agreements. "We still are more positive than negative, and we hope that the promises that were given by the American administration, will be fulfilled", — said Vladimir Putin on Saturday.

the Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko is sure that Russia has enough patience and it will continue the negotiations for a peaceful settlement of the situation in Syria. According to the President of the international Federation Council Committee Konstantin Kosachev, the incident only underscores the need for a speedy establishment of the joint center for coordination of Russian and U.S. strikes on terrorists.

"Bilateral agreement on Syria will not be disavowed. The joint centre will be established, the military will be there to meet. But cooperation could now be suspended. It will go on a low profile, it will not be allied cooperation, which was expected," — said the head of the center for international security Institute of world economy and international relations Alexei Arbatov (quoted by "Interfax").

to Use their positions as a pretext to disrupt the truce and launch an attack Assad will not, predicts Gumer Isaev.

"Assad is not in the position where he can dictate the terms. The Syrian army has a lot of internal problems", — the expert specifies. He stressed that the U.S. attack — intentional or not — will prevent Pro-government troops to act in the important regime for the region. Full control over the province would be very pleasant to Assad, but coalition forces will not allow it," — said Isayev.
