Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned the West against any Libya-style military intervention in Syria, describing any such action against Damascus as unacceptable.

In a meeting with members of the Valdai international discussion group of experts , Putin warned that any action against Syria that could cause the same level of destruction seen in Libya would be “quite unacceptable,” the Independent reported.

The Russian premier also lambasted the US, the UK and France's military involvement in Libya, describing the move as a “complete scandal and a complete affront to the international community.”

Earlier on Monday, Putin accused certain Western powers of hypocrisy in their stances on the recent developments in North African countries.

The Russian premier criticized Western powers for backing the revolutions that led to the toppling of North African regimes they had previously supported.

Russia says it will not support any UN Security Council draft resolution against the Syrian government proposed by the Western countries.

Since March, the United States and NATO unleashed a UN-mandated offensive against the then Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi's regime in an alleged attempt to pressure him into giving up power.

Thousands of airstrikes by the Western alliance resulted in the deaths of many Libyan civilians and revolutionary fighters.
