Believe me, the Russians couldn’t care less about the carnage, this is just a photo-op meant to show that they are doing something in the wake of their veto in the UNSC.

Syrian resumes assault on Homs as Russians visit
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, intelligence chief Fradkov arrive in Damascus for talks; over 95 killed in Homs.
AMMAN – Syrian forces renewed their bombardment of Homs on Tuesday as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Damascus for talks aimed at pressing President Bashar Assad to end a bloody crackdown on a popular revolt and carry out reforms.
Activists said the fresh assault on Homs came after 95 people were killed on Monday in the city of one million people, a hub of protest and armed opposition against Assad. More than 200 were reported killed there on Friday night.
“The bombardment is again concentrating on Baba Amro (district of Homs). A doctor tried to get in there this morning but I heard he was wounded,” Mohammad al-Hassan, an activist in Homs, told Reuters by satellite phone. “There is no electricity and all communication with the neighborhood has been cut.”
