Vladimir Putin speaks out: Russia warns of ‘CHAOS’ after Trump missiles threat

Vladimir Putin said he was filled with “concerns” after a tumultuous 24 hours which has seen RAF jets put on alert for a missile strike in Syria and US president Donald Trump issue a fiery threat to Russia.
Now Russian president Vladimir Putin has spoken out at his disgust at how events have transpired.
He said: “The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic,” Putin said on Wednesday during a ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia.
“Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable.”
He said he would work towards “a positive, future-oriented agenda for the world” but once again refused to accept responsibility for both the Salisbury spy and the Syria chemical attack.
Putin concluded: “We will pursue stable development, prosperity and the flourishing of mankind.”
During Putin’s address, the Kremlin said Moscow does not take part in Twitter diplomacy.
In a swipe at Donald Trump, the Kremlin said it favours a serious approach.
