Ruble Fluctuates as Russia Awaits Fresh US Sanctions on Syria

Russia Says Has Proof Britain Was Behind Alleged Syria Chemical Attack Russia has repeatedly accused rebels of staging or spreading rumours of chemical attacks

The military attack was ordered in coordination with France and the United Kingdom, in response to what the USA believes was a chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last week.

On Friday night, the United States, France and the UK launched a unified offensive against Syrian targets alleged to be a part of the nation's chemical weapons infrastructure.

A delegation of experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, based in the Hague, is tasked with investigating an April 7 attack on Douma, just east of Damascus.

In March Russia's General Staff said that rebels were planning a "provocation" in Eastern Ghouta with women and children set to play victims of a chemical attack.

Warning that the strikes will exacerbate the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria and provoke a new wave of refugees from the country and the region as a whole, Putin said the current escalation will have a devastating impact on the whole system of global relations.

Russian Federation has military forces, including air defences, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels.

Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced the US-led strikes as "an act of aggression" that will only worsen the humanitarian crisis in Syria. The Russian vetoes have been one of the main irritants in strained relations between Washington and Moscow, with Western diplomats accusing Russia of trying to protect the Assad government. When pressed, however, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not targeted.

But in a later press conference, Defense Secretary James Mattis called the strikes "a one-time shot", although he suggested that if the regime uses chemical weapons again that could provoke another Allied assault.

Adding to the complication is the lack of a Secretary of State after Rex Tillerson's departure, as well as President Donald Trump's desire to improve relations with Russian Federation.

An official says in a statement today that President Donald Trump made clear previous year that the use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed. "Not only did we go after their absolute strongest research facility, we went after their storage units where they hold the products, and we went after their production". The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

"Those three countries - the US, Britain and France - if they think they can attack us and attack our sovereignty, at the time, we would have no other choice except applying Article 51 of the charter that gives us the right to defend ourselves, the legitimate right to defend ourselves", Jaafari said. "It would be extremely hard to reach any reasonable compromise or decision on this matter.We have to understand that we have well-known red lines", he said.

"A State Party has violated the chemical weapons convention, it has defied the Security Council, and it has broken worldwide law".
