Last week Brexit was the top story in Western media. Outlets described Russian president Vladimir Putin as the main winner of the EU referendum as Europe is weakening now with Eurosceptic political movements gaining power.

Amid these debates, the press was actively disseminating commentaries on the incident in the Syrian sky that took place on the 16th of June, when, according to the US officials, U.S. F-18 fighter jets tried to intercept Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers, reportedly, bombing US-backed rebels.
