On March 20, 2022, Al-Ikhbariya TV (Syria) aired a report about pro-Russia demonstrations held at Syrian universities. Demonstrators at the Ba'ath University told reporters that they are supporting Russia now against NATO and terrorism because Russia had stood with the Syrians in their fight against terrorism. At Aleppo University, demonstrators told reporters that the Syrians and Russians are "rewriting history after the American tyrant has dominated world politics." Demonstrators waved Russian, Syrian, and Palestinian flags, and they marched in a "Z" formation, which signifies support for the Russian campaign in Ukraine.
Demonstrator 1: "The masses of the Ba'ath University have gathered spontaneously in a show of solidarity with the leadership and the people of the Russian Federation, and against the schemes against its borders and its national security, in the same way that the leadership and the people of the Russian Federation stood by Syria against the loathsome terrorism."
Demonstrator 2: "We are meeting today at the Al-Ba'ath University, in front of the Arab Socialist [Ba'ath] Party building, in order to emphasize that we continue to stand with Russia, the brotherly country, against terrorism and against NATO."
Demonstrator 3: "The students of Aleppo University, the faculty, and the staff in its entirety are heeding the call. The Syrian and Russian nations are rewriting history, after the American tyrant has dominated world politics. Today, history is being rewritten, as well as the principle of rights for all, not only for America."
