Russia- 'Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable' than NK

Russia- 'Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable' than NK

Reuters reported on Monday that Russian officials are losing hope for warming relations with the us, citing Trump's missile strike on a Syrian airbase, the massive bomb dropped on Afghanistan and the administration's refusal to halt sanctions related to Crimea. Dmitry Kiselyov, whose weekly news review show on Russia's state-run broadcaster has served as one of the most widely-watched pro-Kremlin programs in Russian Federation, turned his attention to North Korea last week.

"The world is a hair's breadth away from a real nuclear war with all its catastrophic consequences", Kiselyov warned his viewers.

As tension rise between America and North Korea, it appears that Russian state TV has made a decision to side with dictator Kim Jong Un.

"Both are risky, but who is more unsafe?"

"They've all been outplayed by this gentleman", he continued, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"He (Kim Jong-Un) is after all on his home territory", said Kiselyov.

As tensions rise over North Korea's nuclear program, President Trump continues to play his cards close to his vest.

According to Kiselyov, there is some overlap between the behavior and personality of the two world leaders.

"The U.S. missile strike on Syria was a "cold shower" for many Russians", said Valery Fedorov, the pollster's general director.

The Kremlin, which has denied having a hand in Trump's election campaign, one that was markedly more pro-Russia than his rival's, drew a rare line at Kiselyov's analysis.

"Donald Trump's aggressive behavior has resurrected distrust and ill-will towards America, something that has characterized Russian society for the last two decades".

"I hope things work out well, I hope there is going to be peace".

Trump recalled former President Bill Clinton and former President Barack Obama's efforts to deal with the North, pointing out that they've "all been outplayed" by Kim dynasty.

Despite annexing Ukraine's Crimea region in 2014 and continuing to back pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine, Moscow has long criticized successive USA presidents for interfering in other countries' affairs. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to plea for help.

"I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the U.S. will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign", said Lavrov.
