Russia warns of ‘consequences’ after the US, UK, and France launched missiles at military bases in Syria on Friday, April 13, 2018. Though the missiles avoided Russian bases in the region, Russia still felt threatened, and ignored, in their warnings to not bomb Syria bases.
Anatoly Antanov, a Russian ambassador, tweeted to the US that, “Our warnings have been left unheard. We are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.” Putin himself, stated the attack was an “act of aggression,” and that he would convene an emergency meeting with the UN security council over the matter. He also said in a statement released by the Kremlin, that there was no evidence of a chemical weapons attack in that part of Douma said to be attacked. In the same report he says the strike would “have a destructive effect on the entire system of international relations.”
Of the 103 cruise missiles that were launched, 71 were shot down; some believing the Russians may have helped in the defence, as Russia installed the proper technology to do so, many years ago. A Russian defence ministry personnel said on Saturday. “Syrian air defence systems S-125, S-200, Buk and Kvadrat took part in repelling the missile strike. These air defence complexes were produced in the Soviet Union more than 30 years ago.” Though these installations took place over 30 years ago, the defence official also told that Russia helped repair and rebuilt Syria’s defence system.
Alexander Sherin said in a Russian news agency report by RIA Novosti, that Trump “can be called Adolf Hitler No 2 of our time because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union.” She’s referencing here to the time the Nazis first attacked the Soviet Union in 1941, which was also at about 4am.
Russia’s foreign ministry claimed, with grief and solemnity, that Syria had been attacked just as it had “a chance for peace.” Maria Zakharova added to this sentiment, “You have to be quite abnormal to attack Syria’s capital just at the moment when it had a chance for a peaceful future.”
Russia claims that Britain was behind the chemical attack that sparked the nations to strike Syria, as Russia’s Defence Ministry claimed how the attack was faked and they expressed they had irrefutable evidence. “We have evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organising this provocation.”Igor Konashevok, of the Defence Ministry said. The UK responded that the accusations were a “grotesque” and “blatant lie.”
Vassily Nebenzia, Russia’s UN ambasador claims that the three countries had ‘alterior motives’ in attacking Syria, and thus staged a reason to attack. He says they planned to “oust the Syrian government and to deter and contain the Russian Federation”
It’s hard to say who is right, though, on surface level, it appears Trump made a bad decision, as ISIS was on the verge of being relinquished in the region. Hopefully this will not spark a war that the Globalists and deepstate want.
