Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has posted the first official response from the country regarding the allied strikes on chemical weapons targets in Syria that took place late Friday night.

Here is a screenshot of the Facebook post from the Russian Embassy, and below is the text typed out.

Statement by the Ambassador of Russia to the USA Anatoly Antonov on the strikes on Syria

The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard.

A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.

Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.

The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.

These were coordinated strikes by the United States, France, and Britain. Secretary Mattis reported that the payload was much heavier this year than similar strikes last year.

Sec. Mattis: ‘We used a little over double the number of weapons this year than we used last year. It was done on targets that we believe were selective, to hurt the chemical weapons program. We confined it to the chemical weapons type targets.” #SyriaStrikes #Syria

He also warned that there would be disinformation. Though he didn’t specifically say Russia, he was clear in what he was referring to. Russia earlier on Friday attempted to frame the chemical attacks as essentially a frame job. Mattis references that in his remark.

Mattis with a precision strike of his own, aimed right at Russia:
“Based on recent experience we fully expect a significant disinformation campaign over the coming days by those who have aligned themselves with the Assad regime.” #Syria #Russia

It’s going to get worse before it gets better.
