The United States convenes the UN Security Council almost every day to accuse Russia and the "Syrian regime" of certain "chemical attacks against the civilian population of the suburbs of Damascus." At the same time, the United States Permanent Representative to the UN, Niki Haley, has once again threatened to use military force against the Syrian army.
The Russian Ministry of Defense, without waiting for the moment when the Americans move from words to actions, warned that it would not sit idle. The Defense Ministry said that all military facilities in Damascus, as well as in its suburbs, were Russian military advisers and military police personnel. In the event of a threat to them, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will apply fire measures on the means of air attack, as well as their carriers.
