Russian Federation has denied involvement, and on Saturday also condemned strikes against Syria by Western powers, which Britain took part in.

The investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons arrived in Syria on Saturday, but so far have not been able to begin their work in Douma.

Douma was a rebel stronghold at the time of the attack on 7 April and is now under the control of the Syrian government and Russian military.

On the air strikes, he repeated the Russian assertion that two-thirds of the more than 100 missiles fired into Syria on Saturday had failed to reach their targets.

Russian Federation denounces Syria strike
Not for decades, they said, had the United States and Russian Federation come so close to a direct military clash. He said the strikes were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce or launch new attacks.

Also, there are signs the Russians and Iranians will use the US -led attack as an excuse to declare that political avenues for resolving the Syrian civil war have been foreclosed, to justify a more intense military campaign against remaining rebel forces - the sort of campaign that could make use of the equipment Russia is sending to the Tartus naval base for further distribution.

The German government has to assume that a cyber attack on its Foreign Ministry stemmed from Russia, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told the broadcaster ZDF on Sunday.

"We are concerned they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW fact-finding mission to conduct an effective investigation", Ward said.

According to Hamilton 68, a website set up by researchers working with the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a transatlantic project set up to counter Russian disinformation campaigns - Syria is the leading hashtag on social media accounts identified as part of Russia-linked influence networks. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the British accusation that Russian Federation was to blame for holding up the inspections was "groundless". This was at the very beginning after this information [of the attack] appeared.

Charlie Adam is suspended for Stoke and both Eric Choupo-Moting and Konstatinos Stafylidis are out injured. As things stand, the Potters are placed 19 with 27 points, and they are six points adrift of the safety.

"And we can also confirm that all of the attacks mentioned in this report have directly affected the United Kingdom". "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said. "We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", Trump said.

Theresa May has accused Russian Federation and Syria of trying to cover up a chemical attack which killed dozens last weekend.

"We do know the operation is finished for now, and that it was indeed what most of us expected: a narrow action done for narrow purposes, punishing and deterring the use of chemical weapons", said Faysal Itani, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. The British leader noted that the opposition in Syria does not use barrel bombs or helicopters.

United States intelligence agencies also concluded that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign and a federal prosecutor is investigating whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russians to sway the vote.

In GOP-held House districts, 42 percent of residents approve of the tax plan and 46 percent disapprove, according to the poll. Recent polls have found conflicting evidence of whether voters are gearing up to produce a wave that would favor Democrats.
