MOSCOW (Reuters) - The British parliament's refusal to authorize a potential strike on Syria showed a growing understanding of the risks of military intervention in the conflict, Russian President Vladimir Putin's senior foreign policy adviser said on Friday.
"People are beginning to understand how dangerous such scenarios are," Yuri Ushakov told reporters. He said he believed the vote on Thursday reflected the majority opinion in Europe as a whole, not just Britain.
