In this kind of situation, Russia has responded exactly how we would have and should have expected them to. This warning came just this past Sunday during a telephone conversation with Hassan Rouhani. They both agreed that the western strikes had damaged chances of achieving political resolution in the area and that if it happens again ‘chaos’ will be unleashed. This all according to Kremlin statement.
For those of you who do not know, on Saturday the US, France, and Britain launched over 100 missiles targeting what Pentagon claims were three chemical weapons facilities in Syria. This in retaliation to the ‘poison gas attack’ that happened back earlier this month. Whether or not that poison gas attack was carried out by the Syrian government or not is still not set in stone and both the Russians and the Syrian government are denying involvement. As we reported not too long ago Russian officials actually claimed to have knowledge of false flag attack like this one coming so things are a bit too fishy in recent times, to say the least.
According to Reuters, the Kremlin statement said as follows:
“Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.”
Meanwhile, Nikki Haley US Ambassador to the United Nations told Fox News:
“We’re letting Russia know this is not something that we want to be a part of. It’s not something we’re going to tolerate and they’ve got to make a decision. Right now, they don’t have very good friends, and right now, the friends that they do have are causing them harm.”
“The international community is telling Russia that either you make a decision on how you act and when you act, or the rest of us will make a decision in isolating you.”
According to CNBC, Putin believed these airstrikes violated the United Nations charter and were an ‘act of aggression.’ While we do not currently know what is going to come of all of this but there is a lot more going on than we are aware of.
