UN Secretary General States That The Cold War Is Back

As someone who just about remembers the Cold War, I find this sad, but cannot disagree.
While members of the UK and US governments have been occasionally intemperate with their language, the Russian government's behaviour over the past few years has been, at best, inexplicable. They have not treated the UK concerns over the Skripals seriously and did not give adepqate responses when given the oppurtunity. They have dismissed allegations of a chemical attack by Assad and are prepared to attack western forces if they attack Assad. These are unnerving times and many countries, including the US, the UK, and France, need to show a robust response to Assad, while at the same time showing caution and weighing up the consequences. I only hope the Russian government also shows a degree of care and a willingness to be pragmatic in this situation
