"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.

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.

"The worst fears were justified: our warnings were ignored, a script prepared in advance is being put into practice, and again we are threatened".

Russia's Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi said at a press conference on Saturday: 'This fact of American aggression shows that United States of America is not interested in conducting an objective investigation, wishes to disrupt the process of peaceful resolution in Syria and destabilise the situation in the region and has nothing to do with the previously proclaimed goals of fighting worldwide terrorism'.

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the USA and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website. "You need to be really exceptional to shell Syria's capital at the moment when it had gained a chance of a peaceful future".

US President Donald Trump announced the airstrikes in retaliation for Syrian President Bashar Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

The strikes were a response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on the Syrian town of Douma last weekend which killed dozens of civilians.

"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries", he added.
