Russian Embassy: Grozny Is the ‘Solution’ for Aleppo

As the United States and Britain announced that they are considering new sanctions against Moscow for its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the brutal aerial bombardment of rebel-held Aleppo, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry worried Sunday that Russian fighter jets were harkening back to a similar strategy used by the Kremlin during its war in Chechnya.

“There are still deep beliefs in a lot of people that Russia is simply pursuing a Grozny solution in Aleppo and is not prepared to truly engage in any way,” Kerry said at a press briefing with U.K. Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, referring to Moscow’s vicious scorched earth campaign during the Second Chechen War that decimated the breakaway republic’s capital city.
