On Friday, the Russian ambassador to the United States responded to the strikes by the U.S., U.K, France, and Israel in Syria by saying that Russia warned there would be consequences if such strikes occurred.
“The worst apprehensions have come true,” Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said in a statement. “Our warnings have been left unheard.”
“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” Antonov continued. “Again we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.”
