'Consequences' for Syria strike: Russian Federation

'Consequences' for Syria strike: Russian Federation

Earlier in the day, Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said that Russia might consider sale of the S-300 systems to Damascus following US-led strikes against Syria.

Noting that Trump extended "an olive branch" to both Russian Federation and Iran in his speech, Taleblu added that "the question for the USA and the coalition is how long are they prepared to sustain this", he asked.

"Senate Armed Service Committee Chairman John McCain is applauding the airstrikes but says "they alone will not achieve United States objectives in the Middle East. The capital of a sovereign government, trying for years to survive under terrorist aggression, has been attacked", foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook".

"Again, we are being threatened", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a statement.

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.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is praising Trump's "decisive action in coordination with our allies", adding, "We are united in our resolve".

The strikes were a response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on the Syrian town of Douma last weekend which killed dozens of civilians. In his speech announcing military action in Syria, Trump pointedly asked: "What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?"

"The insult of the Russian president is unacceptable: the USA - the owner of the largest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries", the diplomat concluded.
