Syrian President Bashar Assad renewed his support for Russia in the battle against "old and new Nazis" on Wednesday, according to the Russian news agency TASS.

"I'd want to use the opportunity, as this is my first visit since the start of the special operation in Ukraine, to restate Syria's support for the special operation against the old and new Nazis. I think they are old and new Nazis since the West once tolerated and now supports old Nazis on its turf," "Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stated at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Kiev and the West argue that Russia's claims that Ukraine has become a hotbed of Nazism and "Russophobia" are a sham justification for an unprovoked war of aggression in Ukraine.

"The talks between our officials do not end," Syrian President Bashar al-Assad added, "but the worldwide developments over the last year need us to meet in order to establish shared concepts for this stage."

"We appreciate Russia for the tremendous support it offered in dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake, particularly the Ministry of Defense and the Russian army, which directly assisted in the rescue of the injured," Bashar al-Assad continued.

Russia's military assistance to Assad aided him in turning the tide in a devastating civil war that began as a pro-democracy uprising in 2011.

On Tuesday evening, Assad landed in Moscow. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, who is also the presidential special envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Bashar Jaafari, and Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Yefimov greeted him at the airport. Assad and Putin last met in September 2021, when the Syrian president visited Moscow.
