Apr 12, 2017

Vladimir Putin didn’t respond directly to Sec. of State Tillerson’s “you are with us or with him” ultimatum, but he reaffirm the Russian position that the Assad regime is being framed for the gas attacks. He also said Russia has intelligence that the rebels will use some kind of substance in Damascus again. According to the Daily Mail Putin warned,

“We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared ... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using it,' Putin said after he was asked about further American missile strikes.”
