Russian Federation says United Kingdom led 'staged' Syria gas attack


"We condemn the actions and hold the Kremlin responsible for the malicious activities", said Jeanette Manfra, the chief cybersecurity official for the Department of Homeland Security.

"Russian state-sponsored actors are using compromised routers to conduct spoofing "man-in-the-middle" attacks to support espionage, extract intellectual property, maintain persistent access to victim networks and potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations", they said.

"We are open for those contacts, they help to understand each other better", Lavrov said.

US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Federation of imminent military action in Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, declaring that missiles "will be coming" and lambasting Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, write Susan Heavey, Makini Brice and Tom Perry.

The attacks early on Saturday come in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend.

SIMON: At the same time, there was a lot of concern obviously on behalf of the U.S., Britain and France that Russian Federation, that has military assets on the ground there in Syria, might make some kind of military response.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", Russian's ambassador to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, told reporters following a closed-door meeting of the Security Council. Meanwhile, in Britain, the cabinet agreed in principle "on the need to take action" in Syria to "deter the further use of chemical weapons", a Downing Street statement stated.

"Insulting the president of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible", added the envoy, after President Donald Trump directly called out his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin over his support for the Assad regime.

The action followed a week of threats of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, outside Damascus, where Syrian forces have always been battling rebels.

In response to the alleged poison gas attack in the town of Douma that killed dozens of civilians last week, the strike was aimed at cutting off chemical weapons production in Syria.

In February this year, USA forces working alongside Kurdish militia in the east of Syria clashed with regime forces and killed scores of Russians working as mercenaries.

What has Trump said about the attack? And, you know, he's basically saying that - you know, what Russia's said all along. The medics, however, said none of the patients had any symptoms of chemical poisoning, according to the statements. Russian Federation has also used its United Nations veto six times to prevent condemnation of Assad's use of chemical weapons.

The White Helmets, a civil defense agency, blamed the Assad regime for the alleged chemical attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Far-right British politician Nigel Farage, an outspoken Trump supporter, also weighed in on Syria this week, accusing "globalists" of wanting to start a war with Russian Federation and calling the chemical attack in Syria a "false flag".

Putin may pretend that his warnings had worked and reduced the USA strike on Syria to merely a symbolic demonstration of old Tomahawk missiles with an even more symbolic show of allied solidarity. -Russian ties in a one-on-one summit with President Trump.
