Russia Warns of ‘Consequences’ To Western Strikes in Syria

“The worst expectations have materialized. Our warnings fell on deaf ears. A pre-planned scenario is being acted on. We are being threatened again,” Russia’s ambassador stated. “We have warned that such actions will not remain without consequences.
