U.S Implicated in $4 Billion Dollars’ Russian Arms Deal With Syria

Russia supplies warplanes to Syria.

Yesterday, three U.S. Senators strongly questioned Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta about U.S. contracts with the Russian arms dealer Rosoboronexport — the same company selling billions in arms to Syria. Panetta didn't have an answer.

The illegal arms deal was uncovered by United to End Genocide.

While our government calls on the world to sanction Syria’s government, our own defense department is doing business with the same Russian arms trader that has provided $4 billion dollars’ worth of weapons to the Syrian regime.

With thousands of men, women and children dying by the day in Syria — we need to send one message LOUD and CLEAR to Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta: It's time to stop doing business with Rosoboronexport and start standing up for the innocent people of Syria.
