Pro-regime activists disappointed of Putin visit
(Zaman Al Wasl)- As the domestic gas crisis mounts in Syria, pro-regime activists have expressed disappointment following a visit by the Russian President Vladimir Putin to Damascus where he met with officials including Bashar al-Assad in a military base, according to Kremlin statement.
 
Far from the regime’s media coverage, most of Syrians have been waiting for so long in vain to acquire even one gas cylinder.

Putin, whose country holds one of the world's largest gas reserves, should not be unable to supply Syria to end or even alleviate the crisis.

Assad's loyalists must have felt a great deal of bitterness, since no Russian gas reached the Damascus ally at the the time the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Putin launch the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project in Istanbul. 

For pro-regime activists, tem, Russia does not attach any importance to Syria, and that the talks about the reconstruction reported seem rather laughable. It is, indeed, hard to believe that Russia would help in a reconstruction plan that will cost hundreds of billions, and which is supposed to pull the country out of the swamp of ruin.
