Russian military bizarrely claims United Kingdom staged Syrian chemical attack

He said BZ was part of chemical arsenals of the U.S., Britain and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries, while the Soviet Union and Russian Federation never developed the agent. The US, France, and Britain announced a joint operation against Syria's government, a week after a suspected chemical attack outside the capital Damascus left more than 40 people dead.

After months of criticism that Trump was being soft on Putin, the USA president pulled no punches with a Tweet on Sunday: "President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad". "Our warnings have been left unheard", the statement said.

"Again, we are being threatened", Antonov continued.

Trump had also said last week that Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in Douma because of his support for the Syrian government.

Alexander Sherin, first deputy chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, said on Saturday that the United States is violating all global norms.

According to all global norms, this is a violation of all worldwide rights, a declaration of war to a sovereign state, Sputnik news agency quoted Sherin as saying.

"I believe that, of course, we're not now in the position that we were at the peak of the Cuban Missile Crisis".

More than that raises the risk of stroke, fatal aneurysm, heart failure and death, the study found, according to The Guardian . The study is big news for drinkers across the world since countries have different recommendations for alcohol consumption.

John Hannah, senior counselor at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who has worked with Bolton in the past, said Bolton was opposed to "empty symbolic gestures that make us feel good but have no strategic effects". "But within that, I believe that now the situation is more unsafe than it has been since any moment the Trump administration came to power".

The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad.

Russia, a key Syrian ally, dismissed the allegations against Syria and said its own experts found no "trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians". Russian Ambassador to Beirut Alexander Zasypkin cited orders by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

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

In a reference to the US, he said that "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". Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes.

During a press briefing on Friday, Mr Lavrov said he had "irrefutable evidence" that the attack was staged as part of a "Russophobic campaign" led by one country, which he did not name.
