Turkish students protest against ‘imperialist’ Russia’s Syria intervention

Students in Turkey demonstrated outside the Russian consulate on Sunday, demanding an end to Moscow’s military support for the Assad regime in Syria, which has seen tens of thousands killed.

Dozens of protesters chanted against Russia’s bombing of Aleppo in the Turkish capital, and urged the Syrian regime to end its siege Aleppo, where thousands are struggling to survive under government bombardment.

It came as at least 47 people died in suspected Russian bombing in rebel-held Idlib province.

“Thousands of people are losing their lives,” said Mehmet Akif Olgun, vice president of the National Turkish Students’ Association which organised the protest.
