The Associated Press says that joint military actions may be taken in response to Syria's alleged poison attack.
Phone calls to the Russian defence ministry in Moscow were not answered after business hours on Tuesday.
May would not comment earlier when asked whether Britain would join any US -led military intervention.
At stake is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the US and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and, most recently, its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad .
"Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria", Trump wrote on Twitter, lashing out at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Russia's Vladimir Putin, a key ally of the regime.

King Mohammed VI had a meeting Tuesday at the Elysée Palace in Paris with President Emmanuel Macron of France during which the two leaders "have discussed at length the situation in the Middle East as well as regional and global issues", said the royal office in a statement.
Macron stressed that the consolidated response of the West to use chemical weapons in Syria does not depend on the decisions of the UN Security Council, which yesterday held an emergency meeting devoted to reports from the Duma. The Syrian government denies responsibility.
Observers say the Trump administration is bolstering cooperation with France and Britain to keep in check Russia's support of the Syrian government. "We have to continue to make efforts to cut spending, and cut taxes". She said he will stay home to "oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world". "If a Russian veto prevents Security Council action, then Trump needs to work with our allies, through North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or otherwise", The New York Times said. A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of worldwide unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons and counter Syria's political and military support from Russian Federation and Iran.
USA and French forces have reportedly moved to the eastern Mediterranean in anticipation of the strikes. The guided missile destroyer is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a US attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians.
