Russian officials react to joint attack

Russia Slams U.S.-led Strikes on Syria Says Country Had'Chance for Peaceful Future Russian warns of 'consequences' after US-led strikes on Syria

She referred also to last month's poisoning in England of a former Russian double agent and his daughter - an incident Britain blames on Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

According to a statement by the French presidency, Macron called for dialogue between France and Russian Federation to "continue and intensify" to bring peace and stability to Syria. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning. We warned that such actions won't be left with out penalties.

In an interview published Sunday in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Moscow "should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

Nebenzia blamed Friday's joint military strikes, saying they violated global law and undermined the authority of the Security Council.

When asked on "Fox News Sunday" about "how our relationship with Russian Federation has changed this week", Haley said that relations are "very strained".

Stepping up the pressure on Syria's president, US Ambassador Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced on Monday would be aimed at sending a message to Russian Federation, which she said has blocked six attempts by the UN Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons.

Assad told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the strikes were accompanied by a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Syria and Russia in the U.N. Security Council. Moscow alleged quickly after Saturday's suspected attack that the images of the victims in Douma are fake.

My visit to London presents another opportunity for both countries to infuse fresh momentum to this growing bilateral engagement. According to Sweden's Ambassador to India Klas Molin, innovation is an important aspect of the India-Sweden relationship.

"More than 100 cruise missiles and air-to-land missiles were fired by the US, Britain and France from the sea and air at Syrian military and civilian targets", the ministry said in a statement quoted by RIA Novosti news agency, adding that "a significant number" were shot down by Syrian air defences. But state TV focused on criticizing the West for acting on the basis of what Moscow called a faked chemical attack.

"Everyone is going to feel it at this point", she said.

Speaking prior to the vote on the draft resolution, the Secretary-General urged countries to avoid actions that would escalate the situation in Syria and worsen the suffering of its people.

The weekend's airstrikes in Syria and the country's seven-year-long civil war were also expected to be discussed. The Russian and USA militaries both quickly sought to defuse the situation by assuring each other that the mercenaries' attack wasn't authorized by Moscow.

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site".

The official says that "Syria continues to carry out murderous actions and be a base for these actions and others, including Iran's, that put its territory, forces and leadership in peril". "What did take place was the staged thing", he added.

But the Syrian government said the bombing destroyed an education center and scientific laboratories, but resulted in no casualties.

The government regained full control of Douma on Saturday following a surrender deal with the rebels in the town east of Damascus. Smoke could be seen rising from the northern and eastern edges of the capital.
