Laid on Russia responsible for support of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and the situation in Syria, the US President Donald trump makes a mistake, so as to resolve the existing contradictions with Moscow will be difficult. This view was expressed by the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev, RIA Novosti reported.
“Trump need to stop trying to solve their problems at Russia’s expense, since he will not achieve any of its goals: “the wolves” in Washington will never be satisfied, and “sheep” in the form of normal relations with Russia and especially cooperation against the common enemy then was not to protect”, — said Russian Senator.
He commented on the statement of U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley that trump discusses with the members of his administration the possibility of introducing new sanctions against Russia and Iran for supporting Syria.
According to Kosachev, the missile attack on Syrian airbase Shirt, apparently, have not achieved the goals expected by the American leader. “First of all to appease those who wanted blood in Syria and other decisive actions against Russia. However, going on about them, trump steps on a very dangerous path (…) trying to please them, it is possible to spoil relations with Russia, we can say, to the level of Obama, if you consider it standard negative and “bottom”,” — said the representative of the Federation Council.
An air strike on the airfield shirt, which was used by government forces in the SAR was inflicted on the night of 7 April by order of the trump. In all there were 59 cruise missiles. The shelling was carried out after reports of the Syrian opposition that is loyal to the Assad forces allegedly use chemical weapons in Idlib province. Victims of the attack were dozens of people. Official Damascus denies any involvement in the incident.
