Russian Federation warns United States launching air strikes could spark a war

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov attends a meeting with his Dutch counterpart in Moscow

President Trump ordered precision missile strikes Friday evening on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack. "We know a chemical weapon was used".

It seeks answers from Syria on gaps in its chemical weapons declaration to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The Russian Defense Ministry noted that the Syrian Armed Forces had used Soviet air defense systems S-125, S-200, Buk, and Kvadrat to repel the missile attacks.

He met his national security team on the situation in Syria later in the day and "no final decision has been made", the White House said in a statement.

None of the cruise missiles launched by the US and its allies entered the zone of responsibility of the Russian air defenses, including the Tartus naval base and the Hmeymim airbase in Syria, the statement read. "We can not take such risks", he said at a forum.

Trump Declares 'Mission Accomplished' in Syria Strike
Trump didn't seem to care, or know that the phrase was a political minefield, when he deployed it on Saturday. The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria.

Russia's foreign minister has said a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was staged with the help of a foreign intelligence agency.

Western allies, including the United States, the UK, and France, are thought to be preparing for strikes, but Russian Federation, a Syrian ally, has strongly opposed such action. France, the United Kingdom and the United States will brief allies on actions taken in Syria, the official said. But the next morning, Trump tweeted that he "never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

While a full assessment has not yet been completed, "we believe that the action was successful", she said.

Worldwide investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog are in Syria and were due to start their inquiry on Saturday into the suspected toxic gas attack.

"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", Antonov said in his statement responding to the US-led military action. The ministry additionally pointed to previous alleged use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

He added, "I know a tremendous amount of people didn't fully appreciate what I was communicating". Bevin posted a video to his Twitter account Sunday in an effort to explain his comments.

Turkey, an important player in the Syrian conflict, said it viewed the airstrikes as "an appropriate response" to the Douma attack.

Vasily Nebenzya, speaking at the UN Security Council meeting, said the attacks "make a catastrophic humanitarian situation even worse".

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, on Friday accused Russian Federation of lies and covering up for Assad, which she said had used chemical weapons at least 50 times in the past seven years of warfare.

"We welcome this operation which has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma, largely suspected to have been carried out by the regime", Turkey's Foreign Ministry said in a statement. All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris. "Syria continues to engage in and provide a base for murderous actions, including those of Iran, that put its territory, its forces and its leadership at risk", the official said.

But the Violations Documentation Center (VDC), which records alleged violations of worldwide law in Syria, said bodies were found with oral foaming, cyanosis, and corneal burns.
