At the same time when the mainstream media and Trump’s main opponents home and abroad hailed the US missile attack on Syrian air base, several Russian officials condemned the action and said it would seriously harm US-Russia relations.
US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus. Assad’s regime has denied the involvement in the attack.
Speaking of the latest developments in Syria, Russian Senator Oleg Morozov told Sputnik:
The attack on the air base resembles the bombing of Yugoslavia, military intervention in Iraq, the destruction of Libya and other acts of neglect of international law by the US.
“It is now quite obvious that the Idlib chemical attack was a US provocation to justify the strike on the air base,” Morozov added.
