Australia rebukes Russian Federation for cyber attacks

That attack also suggests that Syria has become a proxy war between the USA and Russian Federation reminiscent of the old battles in third countries during the Cold War.

Investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have not yet gained access to Douma, where the deadly attack occurred a week ago, OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü said. Meanwhile, al-Assad's Russian allies - who claim the gas attack is nothing more than a "fabrication" by foreign powers - have reportedly been tampering with the attack site in the Syrian city of Douma.

Moscow blamed the delay on the Western air strikes.

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site", U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward said at a meeting of the OPCW in The Hague on Monday.

This is just the latest in a serious of escalating confrontations between Western Allies and Russian Federation, with both US President Trump and Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently stating that relations between the superpowers are worse than during the height of the Cold War.

They asked victims to report any infections so they could better understand the impact of the campaign. "An escalation in Syria that affects Russian Federation may lead to a military conflict with Russian Federation, which has an escalation trajectory towards a nuclear war", Ariel Cohen, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, told Newsweek.

"I call on the authorities for a swift and thorough investigation", he said on Twitter Monday. "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said.

Syria celebrates over its claim it downed British, French, US missiles
On Saturday, the U.S., U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria. The reaction from Damascus and its backers following the 2017 USA strike in Syria was muted despite repeated threats.

Advice circulated by United States and UK authorities warned Cisco routers - a common commercial brand - were affected.

It is barred from having, storing or using nerve agents, and while it is permitted to possess chlorine for civilian uses, is banned from using that chemical as a weapon.

Recently, Washington announced its intentions to introduce a new round of anti-Russia sanctions in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma.

He worked for the news service Noviy Den (New Day) and recently wrote on the deaths of employees of the so-called "Wagner Group", the private army Moscow is using in Syria.

Russian Federation had threatened to shoot down any missiles launched by the U.S. and its allies into Syria, after U.S. President Donald Trump had taunted Russian Federation earlier in the week on Twitter that it should "get ready" for missiles to begin firing.

The organisation, which needs a two-thirds majority to take decisions, has been undermined by political divisions over the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

The report said the information "forms a body of evidence that is sufficient to attribute responsibility for the chemical attacks of 7 April to the Syrian regime" of President Bashar Assad and that there was "no plausible scenario other than that of an attack by Syrian armed forces".
