Sergey Naryshkin, Chairman of the Russian State Duma, claimed that if Russia had had to be engaged in combat operations with a country equal to Ukraine in its potential, the conflict could have lasted four days maximum. Commenting on the speech of the German political scientist Alexander Rahr at the meeting of the Russian-German seminar participants, Naryshkin admitted that Russia is currently involved in three armed conflicts to some extent. In order to have a complete picture, it should be recognized that Germany takes part in namely these armed conflicts with almost the same status". He pointed out that Russia as well as Germany is an international guarantor of the Minsk Protocol implementation. "If Russia had to fight for some reasons, counter aggression of a country equal to Ukraine in its potential, I hope everyone realizes how long the conflict would last, two, three, maximum four days. And everyone realizes which the result of this conflict would be. And what happens in Donbass, it has been taking place for two years so far. So, here's an answer for you who the Kiev regime is waging war against. In Nagorno-Karabakh Russia, as well as Germany is a member of the OSCE Minsk group. Beside that, Germany chairs the OSCE. Thus, its responsibility is even bigger. What about the Syrian conflict, "Russia has a small coalition of partners, Iran takes part, the Kurdish rebels and the government army," the Chairman noted. "But Germany also participates in this conflict, in another alliance, a coalition, the activity result of which however is still unclear."
