Russia responds to Syrian WMD attack with ever bigger lies
Russia accuses U.S. of unlawful Syria raid as Tillerson visits MoscowPutin's response to Assad's war crime is to trot out ridiculous conspiracy theories. Some of the things he is saying border on paranoia. There is clear evidence that Assad used sarin gas in the attack from multiple sources, but Putin is suggesting that the US has somehow planted the evidence and will do so again. That is insane. I thought Putin was smarter than that.
Moscow appeared unready to budge on the primary goal of the secretary of state's mission — persuading Russia to help remove Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad from power. In the opening remarks of a meeting with Tillerson, Russian Foreign Minster Sergei Lavrov warned the United States not to attempt another attack against Syria after last week’s missile strike.
