Russian Federation slams joint airstrikes in Syria
17 April, 2018, 05:32 | Author: Wade Massey
Russia's foreign ministry said Saturday that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future", and warned of "consequences" following the launch of US-led strikes against Bashar Assad's regime in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack.
"It is long overdue that this council condemns the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror and demands worldwide accountability for those responsible for these heinous acts", Mr Ward said in comments obtained by Reuters.
There was no word from Putin himself, though Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was in contact with Washington to discuss an atmosphere which he described as alarming.
"It's harder to track, attribute and respond immediately to a cyber attack. than it is to know who fired a missile", the official said. Lavrov noted that Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions.
US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Federation of imminent military action in Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, declaring that missiles "will be coming" and lambasting Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, write Susan Heavey, Makini Brice and Tom Perry. US officials had earlier said that Trump had pressed for a more aggressive USA strike against Syria than his military chiefs had recommended.
The UN Security Council is now holding an emergency session on Syria at Russia's request on Friday.
Syria has denied using chemical weapons and Russian Federation has blamed the White Helmets - a volunteer group inside rebel-held areas in Syria.

Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.
Russia's denial that the Assad government was responsible for the chemical weapons attack, further angered Trump, one of the USA officials said.

The Wagner Group is believed to be bankrolled by Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was indicted in the United States in February on charges of funding a "troll factory" that tried to influence the 2016 presidential election. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals. In London I think it is possible the publication of compromising Moscow's response to the involvement of British armed forces in a missile strike on Syria. It does not, however, remove the need to formulate Russia's own strategy in Syria that might go beyond supporting an internationally ostracized and regionally condemned regime. This time with our allies, we have struck harder.
