diplomatic relations tit for tat response it's a catalyst as we in this group are fair but of course there is so much else behind all this much that's gone on over the last few years with the camp of russian campaign in syria with what's been going on in crimea and ukraine that has worsened relations between the west and russia of course putin and donald trump are both saying that there is room so walk back from this of course they have to say that they don't want to go marching off to war but yes we are in a severe diplomatic crisis of the moment and it doesn't seem to be getting any better right now. some of the students who survived that school shooting in the u.s. are hitting back at criticism of the stand they've taken on gun control there have been powerful voices and protests since last month's attack in florida and that's made them a target for the national rifle to rifle association as well as conservative media
