“This was all planned,” The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, said. He says that the chemical attack by “Assad” was actually a “provocation in advance” conducted by the U.S., so they would have justification on their air strikes carried out against the Assad regime.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky has since called for Moscow to conduct their own “vladimir zhirinovsky syria” against the U.S. in response to the Trump administration’s air strike in Syria.
The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, has also said that the whole point was to “overthrow Assad” and to undermine Russian influence in the country. Because of this, Syria has the right to retailitory strikes, according to Zhirinovsky.
The agreement that said that the U.S. and Russia would not target each other over Syria has been cancelled which has led Vladimir Zhirinovsky to also suggest that, Russia should bring out long range surface-to-air missile systems to cover Syria, as well as, for more warships to be sent to the area surrounding the country.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who is a member of Russia’s state Duma, also said that Moscow should declare partial mobilization and put strategic missile forces place while demanding that “retaliatory strikes” should be carried out against the U.S., “if they continue aggressive actions” against the Assad regime in Syria.
“So they would know, that they will not be allowed to destroy Syrian armed forces like this – with impunity,” Vladimir Zhirinovsky said.
He also added that, “Americans are envious of our success, and they have only had military defeats since 1945,” saying that Donald Trump must have been “misinformed” or “misled” into carrying out the air strike against the Assad regime.
“This confrontation is going to last for a long time and this is a battleground between the U.S. and Russia,” Vladimir Zhirinovsky said.
