Russian PM Warns Of “Military Clash” With United States

The Hill reports:

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday condemned President Trump’s missile strike in Syria, saying it puts Moscow and the U.S. “on the verge of a military clash.”

“This military action is a clear indication of the US President’s extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticized in his inauguration speech,” he wrote on Facebook. Medvedev said the missile strike is “really sad for our now completely ruined relations” with the U.S. and “good news for terrorists.”

“The Trump administration proved it will fiercely fight the legitimate Syrian government, in a tough contradiction with international law and without UN approval, in violation of its own procedures stipulating that the Congress must first be notified of any military operation unrelated to aggression against the U.S.”
