Strikes on Syria did not hit areas near Russian bases: Moscow

Strikes on Syria did not hit areas near Russian bases: Moscow

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. He said there would be "consequences", and the responsibility for them lies with Washington, London and Paris.

Russian Federation may consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria and other countries, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Saturday after US, French and British air strikes on Syria.

"This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine", said Britain's United Nations ambassador Karen Pierce. We are being threatened.

"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries", he added.

Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia (L) and Bolivia's Ambassador to the United Nations Sacha Sergio Llorenty Soliz speak to the media outside Security Council chambers at the U.N. headquarters in NY, U.S., April 12, 2018.

Russia may lose its hard-won share on the global titanium market if the Kremlin stops exports to Boeing, a key Russian producer has warned.

The statements were significant because the head of the Russian General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, had previously said the Russian military would respond to USA airstrikes that put Russian lives at risk by shooting down the missiles and potentially the ships or planes that fired them. Moscow kept up its resistance on Friday.

The outgoing head of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, this week appeared to confirm reports that around 200 Russian mercenaries were killed in February during a clash with US-led forces in Syria.

Trump says Syria strikes "perfectly executed", declares "Mission Accomplished!"
She said President Trump "has made it very clear that, when it comes to weapons of mass destruction, we have no tolerance for it". Freeland made the comments on the sidelines of a major worldwide summit in Lima, Peru, which U.S.

Russian Federation accused Washington of putting worldwide peace at risk and requested a United Nations meeting in NY later in the day but it was not confirmed that it will happen.

"I believe that, of course, we're not now in the position that we were at the peak of the Cuban Missile Crisis. And in the coming days, we will announce our decision", he added.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Konstantin Gaaze, a liberal independent analyst here, said Friday that Putin still hopes to negotiate a new start to U.S.

Russia's foreign minister has asserted that a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was fabricated with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.

He noted that the Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions.

"We have the irrefutable data that this was staged... and the special services of a country, which is now seeking to be in the first ranks of the Russophobic campaign, were involved in this staged event", he said.
