Developing story. Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued his first statement after US President Trump launched an illegal war against Syria.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that President Vladimir Putin…

“regards the strikes as aggression against a sovereign nation.”

Psekov said that the president believes the strikes were carried out “in violation of international law, and also under an invented pretext.”

“This step deals significant damage to US-Russian ties, which are already in a deplorable state.”

Peskov also insisted that “the Syrian army doesn’t have chemical weapons,” saying this had been “observed and confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a special UN unit.”

Putin sees the US missile strike on Syria as an attempt to distract attention from civilian casualties in Iraq, Peskov added.
