US-led strikes on Syria: Russian channel warns viewers to be ready for World War III
"On April 14, the United States, supported by its allies, launched an airstrike against military and civilian targets in the Syrian Arab Republic. An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of international law, the statement added.
Russia has condemned "in the strongest possible terms" the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts.
The statement comes in the aftermath of the air strikes launched by the United States, France and Britain, targeting sites associated with the country's chemical weapons capabilities.
