Russia will attack the West if provoked in Syria, the UK's former ambassador in Moscow said, as he warned of "the most dangerous situation in our relations I have ever seen." It comes with relations between the West and Russia at their worst point since the Cold War. US Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has backed imposing a "no fly zone" in Syria, where Russia is accused of deliberately bombing civilians, while Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of "problems" if the US continued its "confrontation" with Russia.
