New US sanctions will hurt Washington and Europe more than Russian Federation

Russia is an ally of Syria and gives military backing to its government Russia is an ally of Syria and gives military backing to its government

Early on Saturday, US President Donald Trump announced the military action in Syria in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the city of Duma in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta.

"This is grotesque", Pierce said of the Russian statement as she left an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by Russia on United States threatened military action in response to the alleged attack.

Russian Federation on Friday accused the West of having the sole aim in Syria of overthrowing the government as it urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action.

Russia's Foreign Ministry claims that no evidence of chemicals or deaths in the bombing area were found in its inspection.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to arrive in Douma on Saturday.

"We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged event, and that the secret services of a certain state that is now at the forefront of a Russophobic campaign was involved in this staged event", he said during a press conference.

Russian Federation has requested a United Nations meeting in NY later in the day, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Lavrov reiterated a strong warning to the West against military action in Syria.

"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.

"They're cowardly political thugs", Klimov said of the USA administration.

And this line has been backed by the United Kingdom and USA who are also pointing the finger at President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

The UK has placed the blame for the Skripal poisoning firmly at Russian feet, saying it's the only country with the means, motive, and technical ability to carry out the attack on UK soil.

The Violations Documentation Center (VDC), which records alleged violations of global law in Syria, said bodies were found foaming at the mouth, and with discoloured skin and burns to the eyes.

On Thursday, US officials said they had blood and urine samples from victims which had tested positive for chlorine and a nerve agent, according to a NBC News report.

"Our President has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria", Haley said.

The action followed a week of threats of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, outside Damascus, where Syrian forces have always been battling rebels.

Russia's denial that the Assad government was responsible for the chemical weapons attack, further angered Trump, one of the US officials said.

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