Russian Federation may consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria and other countries, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Saturday after US, French and British air strikes on Syria. This scenario, he said, "cannot be tolerated. especially in light of the deployment in Syria of the Russian contingent".
"Again, we are being threatened".
According to General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the strikes hit three targets related to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons programme - a scientific research centre near Damascus, a weapons storage facility west of Homs and a third location that contained both a command post and an equipment storage facility in the same area.
Antonov added: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", and said that the USA "has no moral right to blame other countries" since it possesses a large arsenal of chemical weapons of its own.
The US government also slapped sanctions on 38 Russian individuals and entities on April 6th. A few hours after the drone left, Russian-made fighter jets bombed the hospital in what USA officials believe was an attempt to hide the use of chemical weapons.
"Syria indeed today represents the most serious threat to global peace and security", Guterres said.
