Russia's ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that the US, British and French airstrikes will not be left without consequences. This is written in his statement, published on the facebook page of the embassy.

"The worst fears were justified: our warnings were ignored, a script prepared in advance is being put into practice, and again we are threatened. We warned that such actions will not remain without consequences," the report said.

According to Antonov, all responsibility for this lies on Washington, London and Paris.

"The insult of the Russian president is unacceptable: the US - the owner of the largest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries," the diplomat concluded.

We recall, on the evening of April 13, US President Donald Trump ordered to conduct the rocket attacks on Syrian territory in response to the use of chemical weapons in the Douma. They were also joined by the United Kingdom and France. According to Reuters, the United States struck with cruise missiles Tomahawk.

After the attack, the statement was also made by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron. The leaders noted that the strikes were applied exclusively to objects that are associated with chemical weapons. The Russian ambassador to the US, Antonov, threatened sides with the consequences for striking Syria.

On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place. As a result of this attack at least 70 people died. The Syrian government and Russia called this information untrue, while the US and allies have blamed Bashar al-Assad for the attack.

Later U.S. President Donald Trump announced about a coming missile attack in Syria and urged Russia to be prepared. Also, the British troops prepare for the operation.

In its turn, Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed that the missiles should aim the ‘terrorists’. The General Staff of Russia recommended the US and its allies to restore Syrian Raqqa instead of threats.
