Russian Federation claims Syria chemical attack was staged by United Kingdom

Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication by foreign power' Britain denies Russian claims that it staged Syria chemical attack

But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russian Federation also demonstrated again the paralysis of the UN's most powerful body in dealing with Syria's seven-year conflict.

The Russian ambassador said his country is being "threatened" and warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences". The expulsions were the most ever by the US against Russia, and came in response to a suspected Russian nerve-agent attack on a former spy and his daughter in England.

Mr Putin and Mr Macron instructed their foreign and defence ministers to maintain close contact to "de-escalate the situation", the Kremlin said.

He added without elaboration that Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

During a phone call late on Thursday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump agreed on the need to deter chemical weapon use in Syria.

The US and France said they had proof it took place and, alongside the United Kingdom, were considering military retaliation.

Russian Federation responded angrily to a USA -led strike against Syria on Friday, warning of unspecified "consequences" that stoked fears the conflict could escalate.

"These systems were supposed to be supplied there a long time ago..."

U.S., British and French forces pounded Syria with more than 100 missiles early on Saturday in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week, in the biggest intervention by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar Assad. Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes.

Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking Mr Assad, who is also supported by Iran, and said there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma, a town near Damascus which had been held by rebels until this month.

"We expect the mission to go without any delay to Douma where Russian specialists who examined this place have not found any confirmations of the use of chemical weapons", he said. In his speech announcing military action in Syria, Trump pointedly asked: "What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?" "I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Lavrov said.

Russia, which has backed the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, has joined Damascus in denying an attack even took place - even though US authorities have declared it did with near certainty. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

Worldwide investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog are in Syria and were due to start their inquiry on Saturday into the suspected toxic gas attack.

The Russian military said its chemical experts visited Douma shortly after the alleged attack and found no trace of chemical agents in ground samples.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma has been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces.
