Russia warns the US of what would happen if its attacks in Syria ended with Russian casualties
Russia warned the US representatives both publicly and through the relevant channels including the military of the serious consequences that could have if the US were to carry out attacks and if Russian citizens died" Chizhov said in an interview with the network Euronews.
The president of the USA Donald Trump did not exclude the possibility of giving a military response to the alleged chemical attack perpetrated in the Syrian city of Duma which according to the so-called White Helmets claimed the lives of 40 people and left more than 500 affected.
Previously a naval group of the US Navy headed by the USS aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman left for the Mediterranean Sea.
The US France and Germany were convinced that this attack actually took place and that it was also perpetrated by Damascus although the Syrian authorities denied any involvement.
Doctors at the Duma hospital where the wounded were supposedly taken - the only hospital in the city - deny treating people with symptoms of a chemical attack the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria reported.
The Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasili Nebenzia maintained that the alleged use of toxic agents in Duma of which the West accused the Government of Bashar Asad was "an assembly." The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the false allegations of chemical attacks seek to justify a military intervention in Syria as happened a year ago in the Syrian province of Idlib.
