'Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!" .

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of foreign affairs committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said it's "really scary to think what kind of people control the largest military arsenal the planet has ever seen".

Putin dismissed Trump's tweet, saying "We don't do Twitter diplomacy".

Mueller's investigation is approaching its anniversary, but has not produced a single indictment supporting the collusion allegations.

The White Helmets were among the first NGOs that reported the supposed gas attack to the media and even claimed that the chemical agent used was chlorine.

The president's comment came shortly after he warned Russian Federation that the United States will be attacking Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. Russian Federation had earlier warned that any US missiles fired at Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel enclave would be shot down, reported Reuters. "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

Zasypkin also said a clash between Russian Federation and the United States over Syria "should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations".

Trump's threat of retaliatory military action prompted a slew of Russian comments warning that US strikes could trigger a direct military clash between them. But he has threatened military action in response to Syria's suspected chemical attack, which activists and rescuers say killed at least 40 people.

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May said all the indications pointed to Syrian government responsibility for the attack and such "a shocking and barbaric act" could not go unchallenged.

Assad has been bracing for an American strike in response to the suspected chemical attack. Both countries are allied with the Assad regime, which has been endeavoring to quell an uprising since 2011 and is estimated to have killed as many as 700,000 Syrians.

In response, a former British commander of the Joint Forces Command, General Sir Richard Barrons, warned in an interview with BBC Radio 4's 'Today" program, "I hope the ambassador has chosen his words very carefully because what he's actually saying is, if the US and allies decide to strike against Syrian chemical weapons and delivery aircraft, not only are they going to try and shoot down the missiles in flight - which they are capable of doing but won't be with total success - but by saying the words, "launch platforms' he's saying they are going to try and sink ships, sink submarines and shoot aircraft out of the sky".
