Russian Federation needs our help with their economy, and that it would be very easy to do.

The draft would also give council support to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' fact-finding mission that Sweden's U.N. Ambassador Olof Skoog said "is on its way" to Syria to determine whether chemical weapons were used in the Damascus suburb of Douma last weekend.

Earlier on Wednesday it warned Russian Federation about the intention to strike at Syria "smart" missiles and suggested Moscow to prepare for this. Another option - strike the locations where chemical weapons are stored.

Russian's foreign ministry said that Washington was using the alleged chemical attack as a pretext to target Syria, and that the threats were hindering the government's efforts to fight "terrorism".

Speaking at a news conference in the capital, Maria Zaharova condemned the threats from U.S. President Donald Trump aimed not only at Syria, but also Russian Federation. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart".

He said: "We hope that there will be no point of no return - that the USA and their allies will refrain from military action against a sovereign state".

The Kremlin spokesman has commented on President Donald Trump's tweet warning of an imminent missile strike on Syria by saying that Moscow doesn't engage in Twitter diplomacy. "There is no reason for this", Trump said.

Asked if he thought the St Petersburg bomb was the beginning of a Central Intelligence Agency plot to oust him from power, as has been suggested in the media, Putin answered, It will take more than a bag of tricks in a subway to make me blink.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hit Trump in a Facebook post: "Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting global terrorism for several years on its territory". "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" He adds: "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova posted that "missiles must fly towards terrorists, not a legitimate government that has been fighting worldwide terrorism in its territory for several years".

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime, saying it could trigger a direct military clash.

An apparent chemical attack killed many children and dozens of other people in Douma outside of Damascus as rebels battle Assad for control of the town.
