Russian Deputy Prime Minister Rogozin Meets Assad in Damascus

@Rogozin / Twitter

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who also oversees Russia's military-industrial complex, met with Syria's top leadership on Tuesday, according to the Interfax news agency.

Rogozin tweeted about the meeting from his personal account.

"Work in Damascus. Talks with Assad, Prime Minister Khamis and Foreign Minister Muallem. Victory in the war against terrorism also depends on the economy." 

Rogozin included several photos of himself at the meeting. 

Dmitry Rogozin has served as Russia's deputy prime minister and head of the defense and space industry since 2011. 

… 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.
