White House national security adviser H. R. McMaster says it is time for tough talks with Russia over its support for Assad's regime and its "subversive" actions in Europe, according to online newspaper Ukrainska Pravda referring to Reuters.


Russia's backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government has perpetuated a civil war and created a crisis that has bled over into Iraq, neighboring countries and Europe, McMaster said on the ABC News on April 16, Ukrainska Pravda reports.
