Annan Seeks Help for Syria

President Dmitry Medvedev told special envoy to Syria Kofi Annan that his mission may be the last chance to avoid "a protracted, bloody civil war" and promised Russia's full support.

"We highly value your efforts," Medvedev told Annan during their Sunday meeting. "Therefore, we will provide any assistance at any level."

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with Annan earlier Sunday and urged him to work with both sides in the Syrian conflict to end the violence, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Lavrov also called on the international community not to support one side over the other, the statement said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
