Russian Federation condemns attack on Syria

Syria chemical attack 'staged' with help of foreign secret service: Russia

Russia, a key ally of the Assad government, is calling for an immediate UN Security Council meeting, he said.

"The situation is being analysed right now".

Russia's ambassador to the U.S. warned that there would be consequences for the attacks early on Saturday, which came in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend.

"In fact, it takes a very peculiar kind of uniqueness to attack Syria's capital at a time when the country has received a change for peace at last", Zaharova said, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

"First the "Arab spring" tested the Syrian people, then Islamic State, now smart American rockets".

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook: "Those behind all this claim moral leadership in the world and declare they are exceptional".


Russia's ambassador to the United States says there will be consequences for the military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the USA and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website.

Antov added that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".

A highly placed Russian politician is likening President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler after the launch of airstrikes against Syria, and says he regards the action as a move against Russia.

Moscow on Saturday strongly criticized the joint the US, United Kingdom and France airstrikes targeting the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons in Syria.
