  1. Russia has had a first class experience now how Israel violates international law & they suffer–> a rouge missile attack on Syria to which Russia was not informed …used the Russian plane to shield it from Syria Defence air defence system… making Israel fully responsible for the unprovoked attacks on Syria & the downing of the Russian plane. Trump/May/Macron war ships were in the area in anticipation to attack 4 chemical hoax they had pre prepared 4 no avail in Idlib… a dead end 4them as Putin/Erdogan made Idlib a de-escalation -demilitarization zone- 3million civilians in area a priority. The Trump cards have been played & 4 reckless, irresponsible, evil rouges have been exposed.
