Putin warns of 'acting like a bull'

A Syrian pro-government supporter holds upa sign as a convoy carrying Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov heads towards the presidential palace in Damascus. Moscow's top diplomat was holding talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad after being cheered on his arrival in Damascus by thousands of regime supporters who took to the streets to "thank" Russia, according to state media, for vetoing along with China a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Assad regime's crackdown on protesters.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Wednesday condemned outside intervention in the Syrian conflict, warning against "behaving like a bull in a china shop."

"Of course we condemn violence from whichever side it comes, but we must not behave like a bull in a china shop. We need to allow people to decide their own fate independently," the Interfax news agency quoted Putin as saying.
