Russia to Trump: We Don’t ‘Participate in Twitter Diplomacy’   

 A number of Russian officials have responded to President Donald Trump’s Wednesday morning tweet warning Russia to “get ready” as airstrikes in Syria “will be coming,” according to The Washington Post.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Russia does “not participate in Twitter diplomacy. We support serious approaches. We continue to believe that it’s important not to take steps that can harm an already fragile situation.” President Vladimir Putin, while greeting new ambassadors to Moscow, remarked: “the state of things in the world cannot but provoke concern. The situation in the world is increasingly chaotic.” He continued, saying that the country hopes “that common sense will prevail in the end and that international relations will become more constructive…stable and predictable.”

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova took to Facebook in Syria’s defense, writing: “Smart missiles should fly in the direction of terrorists and not a legal government that has been fighting for several years against international terrorism on its territory.” She claimed that missiles could “wipe away the traces of a provocation.” Read more at the Washington Post.
