Vitaly Ivanovich Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, has questioned why the United States suddenly wants to “help” the Syrian Army with airstrikes against ISIS after years of doing nothing.
He then went onto suggest that it was actually in regards to the ceasefire situation in Syria.
“US Airstrike was intended to disrupt the ceasefire process and to drive the situation out of control,” Churkin said.
He then went onto suggest that the ceasefire deal is in jeopardy.
“This could be the end of the deal between the United States and Russia,” he warned.
He then went onto state “who is in charge in Washington? Is it the White House or the Pentagon?”
“Russia believes the United States attack on the Syrian Army was not a mistake,” he continued.
In responding to Russia’s emergency United Nations Security Council meeting, the United States United Nations envoy claimed that the meeting is “a stunt”, undermining the severity of U.S. airstrikes that killed over 80 Syrian Army soldiers.
Continuing with his scathing attack on the United States, Churkin questioned why they did nothing when ISIS took Palmyra.
He then went onto highlight the shortsightedness of the United States and said that Russia “warned the West about Iraq, Libya and Syria,” in regards to the extremists that have taken over and the instability of those states.
