In response to the US and its allies strike against civil and military facilities in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it violates the UN Charter and international law.
In further details, a statement from Putin said: "Washington launched an aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism."
He then stressed that the multi-national strikes were not sanctioned by the UN Security Council, and were carried out "in violation of the UN Charter and principles of international law."
What's more, the current escalation of the Syrian crisis has "a devastating impact on the whole system of international relations." Yet, history will set things straight as "it has already found Washington responsible for massacres in Yugoslavia.
By using force, Washington is only prompting a new wave of asylum-seekers from Syria and the whole region, according to Putin.
