Russia is outraged and concerned over US threats carry out military attacks in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

“Such bellicose, irresponsible claims of the US representative are outrageous and extremely concerning … Necessary response measures will be taken in this case,” the Russian ministry said.

The ministry’s statement comes after US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the United States was prepared to act on the use of chemical weapons in Syria “if we must.” According to Haley, the United States struck at the Shairat airbase, after a chemical attack in Syria’s Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, 2017, as the UN Security Council “was unable to take action.”

Commenting on the threats from the US to attack Syrian government troops, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “if there is another strike of this kind, the gravest consequences will follow.”

Earlier in the day, the Chief of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov said that Moscow had reliable information about militants preparing to falsify a government chemical attack against civilians. He noted that “in several districts of Eastern Ghouta, a crowd had been assembled with women, children and old people, brought in from other regions, who were to represent the victims of the chemical incident.”

On March 12, Syrian government forces found a clandestine workshop for the manufacture of chemical munitions while sweeping through the village of Aftris in Eastern Ghouta after militants withdrew from the community.

This founding came after on February 26, the Anadolu Agency reported that the infamous White Helmets, who have constantly falsified facts and information, claimed that the Syrian Government had deployed chlorine gas against the town of Al-Shifoniya in Eastern Ghouta.

When commenting on allegations of the Syrian army’s use of chlorine in Eastern Ghouta, Syrian President Bashar Assad said that they are aimed at justifying an attack on Damascus.

After the alleged use of chemical weapons in Eastern Ghouta in January, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Damascus could be using chemical weapons; he also said that Russia is responsible for the victims because of its engagement in Syria.

The Russian Foreign Ministry back then said that Washington was spreading propaganda against Moscow in an attempt to demonize the Syrian government and subsequently topple it, underscoring that the information on the chemical attacks used by the United States was uncorroborated. Damascus, in turn, has constantly denied being in possession of chemical weapons, the destruction of which had been confirmed by the OPCW report.

Yes. Especially when it is done with chlorine. A slow death like in suffocating being tied under water. You are conscientious. No almost instant demise like with Sarin.

There is an alliance between Judaic world and Islamic world for the world domination, at the opposite there are heretics muslims, shiite world, Russia, China and emergent nations who are resisting this Empire of Evil. Nikki Haley is a jew-muslim as well Donald Trump. Saudi Arabia who is leading the Islamic world gave Jerusalem (the third holy site of Islam) to the Judaic world (1st holy site of Judaism) as an alliance agreement for the world domination, as we can see: no reaction from the sunni world which means approval of the deal. In fact this alliance: Jews-Protestants-Muslims has always… Read more »

Yes but You only noticed the evil because You are not one of the beneficiaries. No Semite, Sunni nor into Mosaic religion.

Yes but all supremacists, bigots and racists are into it.
Mein Kampf, Manifest destiny… Old Testament, Quran – all
can be seen as legitimizing propaganda.

Only the in-group that will benefit from the plan varies.

p.s. But the Shiites etc. are not the sacred antagonists
against an “axis of evil”. They are also a supremacist movement.

I’ve said it before, Putin must like being raped, because that’s all the US, Turkey and Britain, ever seem to do to him. To date I can’t think of anything he’s done effectively to stop them, and now I find myself wondering if he ever will. Putin’s stated many times how much he admired the old Soviet Union and some of it’s leaders, but he doesn’t seem to realize that none of the Soviet leaders ever pulled their pants down and bent over just because the US threatened them. I think the old style Soviet leadership would have already sent… Read more »
