'Hypocritical' and 'detached from reality' - that's how a peace plan proposed by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was described in Washington and London. While Syria's key opposition group, which enjoys the overwhelming support of western states, has once again called for immediate regime change.

In a rare TV address to the nation, president Assad offered a political roadmap to ending almost two years of bloody civil conflict. The proposal includes dialogue and constitutional referendum, and calls on outside powers to stop funding what he described as terrorism in Syria.

Damascus has constantly insisted that what's taking place in Syria is not a genuine revolution, but a bunch of mercenaries fuelling unrest. RT's Irina Galushko takes a closer look at how the standoff is attracting combatants from far beyond the country's borders.
