France attack Syria; Russia blames United Kingdom of staging the chemical attack

Sanctions Notwithstanding Trade Flourishing with Russia

Speaking in Moscow, Lavrov said a mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was due to arrive in Damascus on Saturday and would plan to go to Douma "without delay", where Russian specialists had found "no evidence" of the use of chemical weapons or chlorine. Moscow warned against any strikes and threatened to retaliate. And it shows that Washington appears to have succeeded for now in delivering a blow that did not provoke Russian Federation into a military response - even though the degree to which the missile attack hindered Assad's chemical-weapons capability is far from clear. Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said the military had "proof that testifies to the direct participation of Britain in the organising of this provocation in Eastern Ghouta".

The President of the United States Donald trump in a televised statement directly appealed to Russian Federation and Iran.

Trump said the strikes were meant to deter the use of chemical weapons like the attack on civilians in the Syrian town of Douma last week, and that the US was prepared to continue the attacks until the Syrian regime stops using chemical weapons.

State TV channels compared what they described as U.S. President Donald Trump's reckless action with the responsible, statesmanlike stance taken by Putin.

A draft resolution to condemn Friday's joint missile strikes on targets in Syria didn't come close to passing in the U.N. Security Council.

The new round of USA sanctions against Russian Federation will have a "severe effect" on targeted companies and will limit Russia's potential economic growth, Fitch Ratings said on Friday. She also told Russian Federation if it had done its job then Assad wouldn't have these weapons.

The search teams were able to cover approximately 12 miles of river bank by foot and 60 miles by helicopter. Authorities also found personal items that were consistent with a family traveling on vacation.

Now we have it, and surprisingly, they are not blaming rebel groups.

The alleged chemical attack took place in Douma last Saturday. "Yes, it has happened", she said.

Following the USA -led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted - a stark warning of a potential major confrontation. "We can not take such risks", he said at a forum.

He noted that the Russian and US militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

Overnight, US, British and French forces launched more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft, targeting three of Syria's main chemical weapons facilities.
