If you really do not think that the Syrian Army, supported by Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah have not done an amazing job defending the people of Syria you are clearly not paying attention.
The civilians are being slaughtered by the FSA, Al Nusra and company and Daesh, there is no difference between them and I suppose you are right to say that some of the sources are pro Syria and Russia, considering that they are Syrian and they are actually there.
Assad's government still kills way more civilians than ISIS
The Syrian Regime's Barrel Bombs Kill More Civilians Than ISIS And Al Qaeda Combined
Announcing a 3.5 billion dollars aid programme on May 22, World Bank president Jim Yong Kim lauded the Ukrainian authorities for developing a comprehensive programme of reforms, and their commitment to carry it out with support from the World Bank Group. He failed to mention the neo-liberal conditions imposed by the Bank to lend money, including that the government limit its own power by removing restrictions that hinder competition and limiting the role of state control in economic activities.
The rush to provide new aid packages to the country with the new government aligned with the neo-liberal agenda was a reward from both institutions. The East-West competition over Ukraine, however, is about the control of natural resources, including uranium and other minerals, as well as geopolitical issues such as Ukraine’s membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The stakes around Ukraine’s vast agricultural sector, the world’s third largest exporter of corn and fifth largest exporter of wheat, constitute a critical factor that has been overlooked. With ample fields of fertile black soil that allow for high production volumes of grains, Ukraine is the breadbasket of Europe.
Hey who cares about civilians when you can just kill everybody right?
Estimates of the casualties from the conflict in Iraq since 2003 (beginning with the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, and the ensuing occupation and insurgency) have come in many forms, and the accuracy of the information available on different types of Iraq War casualties varies greatly. Various scientific surveys of Iraqi deaths resulting from the first four years of the Iraq War estimated that between 151,000 and over one million Iraqis died as a result of conflict during this time. A later study, published in 2011, estimated that approximately 500,000 Iraqis had died as a result of the conflict since the invasion. Counts of deaths reported in newspapers collated by projects like the Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian noncombatants.
I noticed that you don't actually "tackle" the fact of Soros's words...here's a few more sources...no doubt your head will remain in the sand.
A bit hypocritical don't ya think - lets look at your pro US stance...
But I suppose these stats don't show up on your radar

Nowhere in that interview does he admit to causing the Ukraine uprising, but feel free to show me where he came close to saying that?
Al-Nusra key element in US plot to topple Assad
Perhaps once this is established,
the US will have no legs to stand on and we will see Russia unleash hell upon Al-Nusra and no one will be able to say a thing.
