Russia 'severely condemns' attack on Syria

Russia 'severely condemns' attack on Syria

Also on Friday, Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's Ambassador to the UN Security Council, said that the West's sole aim in Syria was to overthrow the government and urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action.

"We are very concerned about the decision of the cabinet to "take action" in Syria", Mr Yakovenko said.

On Sunday, the day after the attack, the United States president said Russian President Vladimir Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in rebel-held Douma, because of his support for the Syrian government.

Another highly placed Russian politician likened President Trump to Adolf Hitler and said the air assault is regarded as a move against Russia.

"The targets tonight again were specifically designed to degrade the Syrian war machine's ability to create chemical weapons and to set that back", Mattis said.

It was unclear what the approach might mean for Russian and Iranian forces in Syria.

"If there is a USA missile attack, we - in line with both Putin and Russia's chief of staff's remarks - will shoot down USA rockets and even the sources that launched the missiles", Zasypkin told al Manar.

Russian Federation says the chemical attack in Syria that has brought the world to the brink of war was staged by a foreign secret service.

Since taking office past year, Trump has tried to build stronger ties with Putin.

"Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible", added the envoy, after President Donald Trump directly called out his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin over his support for the Assad regime. Last year, the U.S. launched a retaliatory strike after one was said to have taken place in Khan Sheikhoun. It also said Russian officers found no patients with chemical attack symptoms at a local hospital, and no indication of any burials of victims. "On the one hand, not hitting Assad harder would be a sign of weakness".

"This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine", said Britain's United Nations ambassador Karen Pierce.

He accused the United States, France and Britain of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for global law".

"In the past year and a half Russian Federation has fully restored Syria's air defence system and continues to further upgrade it", Rudskoi said.

In his first days in his job, Bolton has quickly assumed the role of "quarterbacking" the policy part of Syria strategy.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, the site of the suspected attack. "We are still far from that", Kortunov told ABC News.

"If possible, he'll want to do serious damage to Assad's ability to carry out these kinds of heinous attacks", Hannah said.
