Polish Foreign Minister: Russia may respond to US attack on Syria by escalating situation in the Donbas

The Kremlin may react to the American bombardment of Syrian troops with an escalation of tensions in eastern Ukraine, as stated by Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Witold Waszczykowski on channel TVP1.

“Now everyone is waiting for the reaction from Russia. Either it will react in Syria or, as some say, unfortunately, in Ukraine. There is a certain danger here, because Russia's policy is unpredictable and in some cases even unreasonable. No doubt, there will be some answer. The only question is where,” Waszczykowski stressed.

As previously reported, on the evening of April 7, the United States military fired dozens of Tomahawk missiles at the Sheirat Airbase in the west of Syria. The attack targeted runways, planes and gas stations. This was a response to the Syrian army’s chemical bombing of the Khan-Sheikhun town of Idlib province where more than 70 people were killed.
