"Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the UN Security Council, I think, for sure", Vladimir Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA newsagency as saying. Four countries abstained - Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru.

Syria and its ally Russia have denied such an attack took place, and Moscow has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria. Russia vetoed a USA textual content, whereas two Russian-drafted resolutions did not get a minimal 9 votes to go.

Mission accomplished, declared US President Donald Trump as he praised the "perfectly executed" airstrikes against the Syrian regime.

In a statement released on Twitter, Russia's ambassador to the US said the country was being "threatened", and issued an ominous warning that reprisals could follow.

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts", Putin said in English language statement posted Saturday on the Kremlin's website.

"If the Syrian regime makes use of this poison gasoline once more, the U.S. is locked and loaded", Haley mentioned. Russian Federation and Syria have mentioned there was no proof of a chemical weapons assault. "We're matching", he said.

Britain's U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce blamed Russian Federation for repeatedly vetoing resolutions on the use of chemical weapons in Syria and said the United Kingdom took military action "to save lives", on the legal basis of "humanitarian intervention".

Russia's Nebenzia called it "a very sad day for the world, for the United Nations, for its Charter which was blatantly, blatantly violated, and for the Security Council which has shirked its responsibilities". A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain or the United States to pass. The US, France and Britain fired 105 missiles in a single day in retaliation, focusing on Syria's chemical weapons program.

It seeks answers from Syria on gaps in its chemical weapons declaration to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

"Again, we are being threatened".
