Two fully loaded Russian warships with military vehicles have been spotted traveling towards Syria.
This comes after the US-led airstrikes were made on three suspected chemical labs that were developing chemical weapons.
The airstrikes created an atmosphere of fear as the whole world anticipates Russian President Vladimir Putin’s response. An Alligator-landing ship was spotted in Bosphorus, Turkey on Sunday.
The vessel was en route to Russian naval base which is located in Tartus on the north Syrian cost.
Prior to the US-led strike on Saturday, there were several reports of armed gathering around Syria. The militaries that gathered around Syria were US, French, and UK forces.
The Russian military was seen carrying ship that was loaded with tanks, trucks, an IED radar, and ambulances.
This Russian vessel movement was subsequent to a statement that was made by the Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov: “A pre-designed scenario being implemented.”
“Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.”
“All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London, and Paris. Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible. The US – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame her countries.”
Images of the ships were shared by Yörük Işık, a naval observer based in Bosphorus.
Russia issued a warning before the US-led airstrikes, that it would respond. This statement caused fear that there might be a confrontation between Nato and Russia.
The US-led airstrike was a response to chemical attacks by the Assad Regime.
UK’s Prime Minister did not seek parliamentary approval, unlike her predecessor David Cameron. Whose intervention against the same regime was rejected by the Parliament in 2013.
Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn warned about the airstrikes, claiming that it could be a start of a wider military action against the ‘already war-torn country.’
He said: “It is either purely symbolic – a demolition of empty buildings which he claims has already been shown to be entirely ineffective as a deterrent.
Or it was the precursor to wider military action. That would risk a reckless escalation of the war and death toll, and the danger of direct confrontation between the US and Russia.”
“Neither possibility offers an end to the war and suffering, or any prospect of saving lives – rather the opposite.”
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also shared his concerns regarding the intervention, claiming that it could trigger Russia to launch cyber attacks against the UK and its institutions/organizations.
Mr Johnson said: “You have to take every possible precaution, and when you look at what Russia has done, not just in this country, in Salisbury, attacks on TV stations, on the democratic processes, on critical national infrastructure – of course, we have to be very, very cautious indeed.”
