Trump warns of attack, Putin of big tragedy

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev delivers a speech during a session at the State Duma the lower house of parliament in Moscow

The day before the Kremlin said that it did not engage in "Twitter diplomacy" after U.S. President Donald Trump used the social media platform to warn Russian Federation of imminent military action in Syria.

With punitive U.S. military action seemingly imminent, Russian Federation scrambled to deflect blame from Syria's Bashar al-Assad and, according to a monitor group, regime forces evacuated key defense buildings in Damascus.

The Russian government will compile a list of USA nationals who will be forbidden to enter Russia, within the framework of a draft law on new sanctions, leader of the Russian LDPR party Vladimir Zhirinovsky said Friday.

Asked in a TV interview whether France would join strikes on Syria, he said: "We will need to take decisions in due course, when we judge it most useful and effective".

The Russian army has continued to deny their side's latest victory came after Assad launched a chemical attack on the last rebel-held pocket of the enclave in the Damascus suburbs, instead accusing the White Helmets civil defense organization of staging the supposed gas assault. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!", he threatened.

May recalled ministers from their Easter holiday to debate action over what she has cast as a barbaric poison gas attack by Syrian government forces on civilians in the formerly rebel-controlled town of Douma, just east of the capital Damascus.

The United States is consulting with Britain and France about a joint military response to the attack in Douma that medics and rescuers said left at least 40 people dead on Saturday.

Russian Federation has been a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor since entering the conflict in September 2015.

The planes fired Storm Shadow missiles at a facility where the United Kingdom said the Assad "regime is assessed to keep chemical weapon precursors stockpiled".

Syrian President Bashar Assad says Western threats to strike his country after a suspected chemical attack are based on "lies" and seek to undermine his forces' recent advances near Damascus.

Mattis said the president's National Security Council would be meeting later Thursday to "take forward the various options" for Trump.

"I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Mr Lavrov said.

The council failed on Tuesday to approve three draft resolutions on chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Moscow's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, warned on Wednesday that any United States missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted. "So the situation is very unsafe", Nebenzya said.

Trump has largely avoided criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, though he singled him out in a tweet over the weekend for supporting Assad. The Kremlin readout said that Putin warned against rushing to blame the Syrian government before conducting a "thorough and objective probe".

Russia, a key Syrian ally, dismissed the allegations against Syria and said its own experts found no "trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians". Two health facilities were also reportedly affected by the attacks. "The key question is: In western Syria, where the bulk of the high-value targets are, does the US risk more than cruise-missile strikes?"

Asked about consulting the U.S, which has also threatened military action, Le Drian said "France is autonomous in taking its decisions".

Russia's UN ambassador said yesterday that the priority in Syria was to avert US-led military strikes that could lead to a risky war between Russian Federation and the United States.

The US, along with France and the United Kingdom, have condemned the alleged attack but President Trump has gone one step further to blame the Kremlin for the incident.

"They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regimen", a spokesman said, adding that they were still working on an global response.
