Russia Warns Of Consequences For Syria Strikes

(Washington, DC) – Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. is warning that there will be consequences for the U.S.-led military strikes on Syria. Ambassador Anatoly Antonov called the strikes an insult to Russian president Vladimir Putin, and said insulting the president of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible. Antonov said Friday that the U.S. has the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons and has no moral right to blame other countries. He said Russia is being threatened by the strikes, and that “such actions will not be left without consequences.”

On Saturday, Russian lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov said Russia was likely to call for a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss U.S., British and French air strikes on Syria. The lawmaker told Russian news, “the situation is being analyzed right now.”
