Russian Federation 'severely condemns' joint strikes on Syria

Russian Federation is Syria's most important military ally in the country's civil war.

Ms Zakharova suggested that Western media bore some responsibility for the strikes, claiming the White House cited "multiple media sources" on the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

US President Donald Trump announced the latest attacks on Syrian targets were in response to a recent suspected chemical weapons attack on Douma.

Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the USA and its allies.

The minister concluded that the Western countries attacked Syria intentionally ahead of the start of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspector's activities in Douma, trying to obstruct the probe. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year. Russian services for security visited the incident and didn't find any kind of substances there, no traces of chemical poisoning were found in local hospitals. He noted that Russian Federation had followed this situation, and the Syrian government was ready to issue visas immediately on the border without any additional formalities.

He added: "At the request of the Syrian government, OPCW experts will be on ground tomorrow".

Douma and the sprawling eastern Ghouta region near the capital, Damascus, had been under rebel control since 2012 and was a thorn in the side of Assad's government, threatening his seat of power with missiles and potential advances for years.

Russian Federation and the United States are using their channels of communications on Syria, according to the minister.

Lavrov said that "intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication".

In a reference to the US, he said that it "it would only benefit those who are protected by the ocean and expect to sit there and engage in continuous efforts to stir up the region in order to advance their geopolitical goals".

A Russian official says the air strikes by the US, France and the United Kingdom on targets in Syria have come at a time when the Middle Eastern country was just about to return to peace.

The ministry has strongly condemned the US-led military action against Syria, calling it an "act of aggression", which violates the UN Charter.
