Over one hundred people rejected here today US and NATO interference in Syria and denounced attempts to apply there "the same formula used in Libya."
During a protest outside the US Embassy in this capital, demonstrators carried banners reading "In Syria we will not allow the NATO formula for Libya," "Down with US dictatorship" and "Hands off Syria," among other slogans.
Attended by Syrian residents in Russia and members of solidarity groups and left-wing organizations, the protest also condemned NATO attempts to undermine Syria's sovereignty.
Artiom Garochev, from the Moscow Committee of the Communist Party of Russia, told Prensa Latina it was immoral for the West to accuse Syria of lack of democracy, in the wake of electoral processes held recently in that country.
The referendum held in February this year and the parliamentary elections of May show the path towards democracy in that Middle East nation, he said.
The demonstrator added that Washington, Israel and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are behind the efforts by armed groups to destabilize the situation in Syria.
