Russia also weighed in on the attacks against the Syrian Regime and condemned the U.S. and its allies for the raids. Russia's chairman of international affairs committee of the upper house of parliament, Konstantin Kosachev, called the airstrikes a groundless attack on a sovereign government. The Russian ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, said, "such actions will not be left without consequences" and called the attacks a threat to Moscow. Antonov added, "Insulting the president of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible."

Russian media is reporting the head of its Foreign Affairs Committee suggested the U.S.-led attacks are "highly likely" to be an attempt to disrupt the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Douma. The Syrian government said they have absorbed the U.S.-led attack and the targeted sites were already evacuated thanks to an early warning from Russia.
