US President Donald Trump has warned Russia to “get ready” for his country’s missiles, saying that it shouldn’t ally with a country which kills its people and “enjoys it”.
“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!,” Trump said on his Twitter account.
The statement came after Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin earlier on Wednesday said that his country has vowed to shoot down any US missiles fired at Syria, including the launch sites.
The US and its allies have accused the Syrian regime to be behind a chlorine gas attack on Saturday while the Syrian government has strongly denied it.
