Cossacks strip Trump of honorary title over ongoing Russia-US row

Russia Threatens To Freeze Cooperation With US

CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Congress on April 12 that a "couple hundred Russians" were killed by US artlllery and air strikes in February when a base housing USA troops and their allies was attacked in eastern Syria.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday that Western leaders have no authority to be "investigators, prosecutors and executioners".

The Syrian-American Medical Society (Sams), which operates in rebel-held areas, and local aid workers said more than 500 people had been treated for symptoms "indicative of exposure to a chemical agent". The Syrian government has denied the allegations. She said Russian Federation would ensure the monitors' security. That then deterred the USA administration of Barack Obama from similar action. It was not clear when the visit would take place. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

He noted that the Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions. During one speech, he said, "We must as a nation be more unpredictable".

Macron said Thursday that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

He has said any strikes would target the Syrian government's "chemical capabilities".Other key figures have been showing signs that they anticipate strikes to happen soon.

He did not say whether France is planning military action against Assad's government.

The comments appear to row back on President Donald Trump's earlier warning to Russian Federation that it should "get ready" for missile strikes in Syria.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied.

It said on Wednesday that samples taken from the site had not revealed any chemical substances. "The situation in Syria is horrific, the use of chemical weapons is something the world has to prevent", Brexit minister David Davis said on Thursday morning. She said she spoke Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron.

"We will do anything possible to make sure that to do what we can do".

Two sessions of the UN Security Council failed to calm the tensions between Russian Federation and the United States, which are on opposite sides in the conflict in Syria, while the USA responded to Russian Federation placing the Black Sea Fleet on alert by announcing that the Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier and a group of ships accompanying it will be stationed in the Mediterranean starting on Wednesday.

Asked about possible US strikes on Syria, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".

Jennifer Cafarella, a senior analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, noted that the Syrian-Russian-Iranian coalition and its war effort in Syria "poses a strategic problem for the USA beyond the use of banned weapons in war crimes against civilians".

He told reporters after a closed emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Thursday that "the danger of escalation is higher than simply Syria", adding: "We hope that there will be no point of no return - that the USA and their allies will refrain from military action against a sovereign state".

Speaking at a news conference in the capital, Maria Zaharova condemned the threats from U.S. President Donald Trump aimed not only at Syria, but also Russian Federation.

Trump did not detail what a strike on Syria would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles. By offering an alternative to Russian oil and gas, we create jobs and grow our own economy here at home while helping to protect our allies from energy extortion and weaken Russia's influence over them.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned such an attack carried the risk of spinning out of control, suggesting caution ahead of a decision on how to respond to an attack against civilians last weekend that US officials are increasingly certain involved the use of banned chemical weapons.

But Nebenzia said the goal was to oust President Bashar al-Assad from power.

The Syrian president was in a "good mood" and continuing his work in Damascus, agencies cited the lawmakers as saying, and praised the Soviet-era air defence systems used by Syria to help to repel the Western attacks.
