Some Russian statements on the missile strike carried out by the US Navy against the Shayrat Air Base in Syria


The Russians are basically saying the tomahawk attack, for technical and logistical reasons,  had to have been planned prior to the alleged poison gas attack and that the gas attack was used as a groundless pretext for illegal aggression against Syria,

Russian Prime Minister Medvedev is basically saying the attack was illegal and unconstitutional, has massively damaged relations with Russia. and that Trump’s decision to rain death and destruction on Syria had more to do with politics than anything else,
