Commenting on the recent US cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday there’s no evidence that Damascus used chemical weapons, but there’s clear evidence of international law violation by Washington.
On April 6, 59 US Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired at a Syrian government airbase in the Idlib province. US President Trump said afterwards that the attack was carried out as a response to a chemical attack on civilians in Idlib that killed more than 80 people.
Speaking on the issue in an interview with Mir 24 TV channel, the Russian leader said that despite there is no evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the country’s province of Idlib, there is evidence that the international law was violated by Washington.
“Where is evidence that the Syrian troops used chemical weapons? No evidence. And what about violation of the international law? It is an obvious fact,” Putin stated.
As for NATO member-states’ reaction to the US strikes, Putin compared it to the nodding of bobble heads.
“What was the reaction of the NATO allies? All of them are nodding like bobble heads,” Putin added.
