Early Saturday morning local time, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that more than 100 missiles were fired by the US -led coalition retaliating against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's suspected use of chemical weapons. She noted in the meeting that Russian Federation "has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons".
He has often attacked the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and has repeatedly suggested the US would benefit from improved relations with Russia. "It's some of the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian Federation propaganda machine".
Global chemical weapons experts were traveling to Syria to investigate an alleged gas attack by government forces on the town of Douma which killed dozens of people.
"These strikes are not seeking to escalate the conflict in Syria, but these violations of global law and norms can not be allowed to continue".
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said global relations should not depend on one person's morning mood, in apparent reference to Trump's tweets.
Konashenkov said Friday that Britain was "directly involved in the provocation", but didn't elaborate or provide evidence. A Western official told CNN that it is not conclusive, but officials suspect the substance used in the attack was a mixture of chlorine, sarin and possibly other chemicals. But it added that no Russian air defenses were deployed against the incoming fire, even though thousands of its troops are stationed across Syria in support of Russian ally Assad.
US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said the strikes were a "one-time shot" and that no additional airstrikes were now planned. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.
The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and risky actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".
A few hours earlier, before sunrise, loud explosions jolted Damascus and the sky turned orange as Syrian air defense units fired surface-to-air missiles in response to three waves of military strikes meant to punish President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons.
Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking Assad, who is also supported by Iran, and says there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma, a town near Damascus which had been held by rebels until this month.
"The evacuation operation should wrap up before the OPCW experts enter Douma", Abdel Rahman said.
Some analysts say that for the doctrine to work, the country or person the American military is trying to deter must understand what actions will prompt a response from the United States.
Lavrov also said Russian specialists who examined the attack found no trace of chemical weapons.
"We did have some surface-to-air missile activity from the Syrian regime", General and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford said at a Pentagon briefing.
