Lavrov made a comment on the subject of strikes US on the Sirat.
“This resembles the situation in 2003, when the US and Britain along with its allies, invaded Iraq without the consent of the Security Council (UN),” said Lavrov at a press conference following the meeting with the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the CIS on Friday. The Minister expressed the view that the U.S. strike in Syria to distract attention from the activities of terrorists “al-Nusra” (banned in Russia).
“Again, you have to go back to the idea that “Dzhebhat-EN-Nusra”, which mimics and changes the names in some way can be considered our Western colleagues in the quality organization, which should be protected, despite the fact that it is declared UN security Council’s terrorist”, – said Lavrov. According to the Minister, Russia will seek to determine the reasons for applying impact USA. In addition, Lavrov said that a U.S. attack on Syrian military damage to Russian-American relations.
“Distressing as all this is detrimental to the already undermined relations between Russia and the USA, but I hope that these provocations will not lead to irreversible results,” – said the Minister.

According to Time magazine http://www.interfax.ru/world/557340to attack the Sirat trump at least 18 times opposed strikes on Syria.
The Kremlin said that the attacks on the Shayrat by the United States were taken in the interests of the Caliphate and that with the termination of the agreement on the prevention of air incident in Syria, the risk of military conflict between the US and Russia in Syria has been considerably improved.
On the subject of questions – whether it is increased the grouping of the armed forces in Syria after the US attacks, the Kremlin said that this issue is within the competence of the Ministry of defence. It was also confirmed that under the existing channels, and Russia had prior warning about the impending strike.
The Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation stated that after the attack on Shayrat, will be taken measures to strengthen air defense, Syrian military installations. It is quite ambiguous. I’ve heard the opinion that only 23 of the 59 Tomahawks flew to the Sirat and place a drop of 36 missiles “remained unknown”. The effectiveness of the strike on the Sirat in the defense Ministry assessed as very low.
The consequences of attacks. In General, talk about “completely destroyed the base,” are a cruel nonsense.
On the background of obvious damage, shows clearly that the runway is practically not affected. Many of the objects have no visible damage.
