Russia: US-led air strikes on Syria “an act of aggression”

Russia responded angrily to a U.S.-led strike against Syria on Friday, warning of unspecified “consequences” that stoked fears the conflict could escalate.

In a statement released on state media has been strongly condemned of the attack.

Russia’s ambassador to the US warned that there would be consequences for the attacks.

“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.

“Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.”

Antov added that it was not acceptable to insult Russia’s president: “Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.”

“The US – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.”

Theresa May, the prime minister of UK currently speaking in a press conference stated that no one other than the Syrian government had taken the chemical attack on Douma last week.

In Douma, last Saturday a chemical weapons attack killed up to 75 people, including young children, in circumstances of pure horror. The fact of this attack should surprise no one. The Syrian regime has a history of using chemical weapons against its own people in the most cruel and abhorrent way, remarked May.
