Haley Slams Russia for Assassination Attempt: ‘They Must be Held Accountable’

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley SLAMMED Russia for attempting to carry out an assassination on one of their political enemies while on British soil.

Big no-no!

Haley said, “Alone, Russia’s crime is worthy of this council’s action. The United States believes that Russia is responsible”

Fox News Insider reports: 

 Haley said in remarks before the Security Council that the U.S. and U.K. hold a special bond and that Washington will always defend London.

Haley said the assassination attempt on Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, England highlights the “growing concern” over Russia’s use of chemical weapons.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said it is “highly likely” the Kremlin was behind the attempted murder of Skripal, a former Russian double agent, with a nerve agent.

Haley said Russia previously used its Security Council veto power to “shield” the regime of Bashar Al Assad in Syria, a world leader accused of using chemical weapons on civilians.

Haley continued on to say that we “take no pleasure in constantly criticizing Russia,” however, “it must account for its actions.”

President Trump spoke to May on Tuesday, saying he would wait for the facts about the attack and if Russia was responsible, the administration would “condemn Russia or whoever it may be.”

Is it our place to say anything? What do you think?
