Putin says Russia's faith in US has waned since Trump's inauguration


Russia's trust in Washington has eroded rather than improved, especially at the military level, with Donald Trump at the helm of the United States, Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

 

"It is possible to say that [Russia's] level of trust [in the US] at the working level, especially at the military level, hasn't become better; it has, in fact, eroded," Putin told the Channel Mir-TV, Spuntik reported.

 

Moscow-Washington relations have been marred by a US missile attack on Syria.

 

On April 7, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat. US President Donald Trump said that the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria's Idlib province on April 4, which resulted in the death of over 80 people, an incident which Washington blames on the Syrian government.
