Russia's U.S. ambassador warns of consequences for Syria strikes

Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign intelligence agency

A potential hot war between Russia and the coalition of the United States, Britain and France might have inched closer to reality tonight, as a strong statement was issued by the Russian Ambassador to the United States of America in reponse to tonight's coalition air strikes on Syria.

"In the past year and a half Russian Federation has fully restored Syria's air defence system and continues to further upgrade it", Rudskoi said.

Syria ally Russian Federation has warned of "consequences" following the launch of US-led strikes against Bashar al-Assad's regime in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack.

"In fact, it takes a very peculiar kind of uniqueness to attack Syria's capital at a time when the country has received a change for peace at last", Zaharova said, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

"First the "Arab spring" tested the Syrian people, then Islamic State, now smart American rockets".

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