Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.
According to Interfax news agency, Russia's defence ministry also said that Syria intercepted the USA and allied attacks using Soviet-produced hardware, including the Buk missile system.
Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the U.S. and its allies "continue to put worldwide politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington".
Earlier in the day, Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said that Russia might consider sale of the S-300 systems to Damascus following US-led strikes against Syria.
