Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign power

17 April 2018

Russian Federation has dismissed the purported chemical attack as fake and strongly warned the USA and its allies against launching a military strike in Syria.

Russia's foreign ministry said on Saturday that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future".

Sergey Rudskoy, head of the General Operations Directorate of the Russian Staff, was reported to say that Russia may reconsider supplying S-300 missile defense systems to Syria.

Trump has pressed military leaders to develop plans for a sustained assault on Syrian regime targets in response to last weekend's chemical attack, the officials said.

Announcing the strikes, US President Donald Trump criticised both Russian Federation and Iran, which have backed Assad's government.

It was unclear what the approach might mean for Russian and Iranian forces in Syria.

Paul Ryan hints at whom he'd back to replace him as speaker
But the career decision Ryan announced Wednesday morning amounts to a forecast of political weather for 2018 and beyond. He will serve out his full term (or "full my serve term", in his confusing words), but after that, he's out of there.

The strikes have come after a week-long global push to punish the Assad regime after images and videos emerged on April 7 suggesting civilians - including children - had suffered a chemical attack in Douma.

"The current state of U.S. and United Kingdom network devices, coupled with a Russian government campaign to exploit these devices, threatens our respective safety, security, and economic wellbeing", the statement said.

Since taking office a year ago, Trump has tried to build stronger ties with Putin.

U.S. intelligence agencies previous year accused Russian Federation of interfering in the 2016 election with a hacking and propaganda campaign supporting Donald Trump's campaign for president.

Konashenkov said that "powerful pressure from London was exerted on representatives of the so-called White Helmets to quickly stage the premeditated provocation".

The Labour leader questioned whether the regime was responsible for the atrocity on 7 April, saying: "While much suspicion rightly points to the Assad government, chemical weapons have been used by other groups in the conflict". "We will attribute where we can", he said, accusing Russian Federation of "not playing by the same rules" and of "blurring the boundaries between criminal and state activity". Our allies know who did this.

"The president has a dilemma", said this official.

"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries", he added.

"Once you own the router, you own the traffic that's traversing the router", said Manfra.

The UN Security Council on Saturday held an emergency meeting at Russia's request over the missile attack on Syria but failed to approve a Moscow-led resolution condemning the bombardment. "Russia and Syria must cooperate".

In his first days in his job, Bolton has quickly assumed the role of "quarterbacking" the policy part of Syria strategy.

"We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged incident and the special services of one state at the forefront of the Russophobic campaign were at play", Lavrov claimed.
