Russian Federation 'severely condemns' attack on Syria

Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban

A Russian bid for the United Nations Security Council to condemn U.S., British and French air strikes on Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack failed on Saturday after only China and Bolivia joined Russia to vote in favor of a draft resolution. By releasing Sarin gas onto the Syrian people, it gives countries cause to attack Syria.

The Russian ambassador to the U.S. railed against the US-led coalition campaign against suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

White Helmets first-responders and Syrian activists have claimed the suspected chemical attack was carried out by the Syrian government on April 7 and killed more than 40 people in Douma, allegations that drew global outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response. Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said after the vote.

"In the past year and a half Russian Federation has fully restored Syria's air defence system and continues to further upgrade it", Rudskoi said.

"You are not only placing yourselves above worldwide law, but you are trying to re-write global law", Nebenzia said after the vote.

The US, UK, and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that a chemical weapon was used by President Bashar Assad's government.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a scientific research center and military bases in Damascus were struck in the attack.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

"And what's most important is no one contests that the use of chemical weapons can not be tolerated and must be deterred, " he said.

The United States, Britain and France have argued that military action was necessary after Assad's forces had used toxic gases multiple times in violation of global law.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who delayed a trip to Saudi Arabia to deal with the Syria crisis, said he had asked special envoy Staffan de Mistura to return to NY as soon as possible to chart a way forward.

"The military operation was necessary and appropriate to preserve the effectiveness of the global ban on the use of chemical weapons and to warn the Syrian regime of further violations", she said in a statement voicing support for the joint US, UK and French action.

Russia should sell its S-300 air defense systems to Iran, North Korea and Syria, simultaneously training these countries' servicemen to use the weapon, Alexander Sherin, first deputy chairman of the Russian parliament's lower house defense committee, told Sputnik on Saturday.
