United States says it has proof Syria government was behind gas attack

Syria air strikes: Russia 'not tampering' with chemical attack site

Russia is accused of tampering with the site of alleged Syrian chemical attack

Ryabkov's comments on Monday came in response to remarks made by Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, who said on Sunday that Washington will impose new economic sanctions on Russian Federation for their support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Concern about tampering was raised by the U.S. envoy to the global chemical weapons watchdog.

The Russian Foreign Minister asked: "Why the United States and its allies had carried out air strikes the day before global inspectors were due to arrive at the site?"

"If you look at what Russian Federation is doing, they continue to be involved with all the wrong actors, whether their involvement in Ukraine, whether you look at how they are supporting Venezuela, whether you look in Syria and their way of propping up Assad and working with Iran, that continues to be a problem", Haley said, adding that the use of a poisoning agent against a spy in England is "another issue". White Helmets first-responder volunteer and activists claimed an alleged chemical attack on April 7 by the Syrian government killed over 40 people in the town of Douma, the allegations that drew global outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response.

Russian Federation on Saturday called USA airstrikes on Syria "treacherous and insane" and a "clear and present danger to world peace".

Ryabkov said that Russia's lower house of parliament is considering legislation that would give the Kremlin the power to restrict U.S. imports, RIA reported.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Sunday the United States would announce new economic sanctions aimed at companies dealing with equipment related to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

The Russian delegation to the OPCW have said that these allegations were groundless and reinforced that Russia has always supported an investigation.

But she will be questioned over why she did not seek parliamentary approval for the action, a decision that she and her ministers say was driven by the need to act quickly.

The Russian foreign minister says Russia did not tamper with the site of the chemical attack.

"So I think everyone is going to be feeling it at this point". The rebels who had controlled Douma for six years surrendered the day after the alleged incident, which left dozens of apparently uninjured men, women and children dead in an apartment building, with foam coming out of their mouths, according to video footage. "But it was the world saying that we've had enough of the use of chemical weapons".
