Russian Federation ramping up cyberattacks in US, UK

In a Russian TV show, President Vladimir Putin said that U.S. allies led strikes in Syria without United Nations Security Council mandate was a violation of global law.

The U.N. chief told an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council Friday called by Russian Federation that the highly volatile situation risks "escalation, fragmentation and division as far as the eye can see with profound regional and global ramifications".

Syria has continued to deny any chemical weapons were used. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals.

"Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its coverups", she said. She noted in the meeting that Russian Federation "has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons".

Speaking from the White House late Friday, US President Donald Trump said the three nations had "marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality".

The alert is not related to the suspected chemical weapons attack in a town in Syria that prompted a US-led military strike over the weekend targeting facilities of the Russian-backed Syrian government, Joyce said.

The inspectors aim to collect samples, interview witnesses and document evidence to determine whether banned toxic munitions were used, although they are not permitted to assign blame for the attack.

Trump was reacting to a warning from Russian Federation that any USA missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on a rebel enclave would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

Rafael Nadal will play his first match since the Australian Open, if you don't count the Davis Cup action. I always feel comfortable here. "I played only with the shot clock in IPTL and it was only 20 seconds".

The vote came at the end of an emergency meeting of the council called by Moscow, which saw Russian Federation and its supporters clashing with the USA and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack last weekend in the Damascus suburb of Douma. That followed a suspected poison gas attack by Syrian government forces on a rebel-held Damascus suburb that killed dozens, including children.

Lavrov noted that Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions.

The strikes were the biggest intervention by Western powers against Assad in the country's seven-year-old civil war and pitted the United States and its allies against Russian Federation, which itself intervened in the war in 2015 to back Assad.

On Saturday the United States, Britain and France carried out a joint operation against the chemical attack by Syria. Some Russian statements indicated that the Syrian events were a false flag and might have been done as a pretext to attack Syria.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma had been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces.

After Trump's tweet, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights - a British-based war monitor with a network of sources on the ground - reported that pro-government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

The capture of Douma has clinched a major victory for Assad, crushing what was once a centre of the insurgency near Damascus, and underlines his unassailable position in the war.
