Russia’s Syrian peace conference in Sochi bedeviled before it started

The Sochi peace conference on Syria was billed by Moscow as the definitive effort to bring the Syrian government and opposition together under Russian-Iranian-Turkish auspices to forge a constitution to transition the country from war to peace. Several leading opposition parties announced a boycott, and some of those who did attend some delegates refused to leave Sochi airport when they saw the Assad government’s flag and emblem. There was no delegation from Iran. Then, when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov got up to speak, he was heckled by delegates who accused Moscow of killing civilians with air strikes. Other delegates stood up and shouted their support for Russia. Lavrov them told them all to sit down and let him finish speaking. They would have their chance later.
