US To Hit Russia With Sanctions Over Support For Assad

President Donald Trump addresses the nation about the U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria

Asked about US-Russia relations, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said ties were "very strained" but that the United States still hoped for a better relationship. "Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those [today], if he hasn't already, and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

"I think everyone is going to feel it at this point", she added.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova confirmed that Moscow had been informed of the looming sanctions.

"You are not only placing yourselves above global law, but you are trying to re-write worldwide law", Nebenzia said after the vote.

"We did not do any coordination with Russian Federation on these strikes, and neither did we pre-notify them", Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Friday night.

Dangers of a direct military confrontation between Russia and the United States eased over the weekend after Western missiles fired at Syria over a suspected poison gas attack steered clear of any Russian troops on the ground. "Reports show a lot of care was taken not to hit Russian targets, which is a good sign and the market should take heart from that", said Salman Ahmed, chief investment strategist at Lombard Odier investment managers in London.

Russian Federation on Saturday called US airstrikes on Syria "treacherous and insane" and a "clear and present danger to world peace".

Broncos release CJ Anderson
Eric Studesville, who was recently named the Dolphins running backs coach, was Anderson's position coach in Denver from 2013-2016. Denver has high expectations for Devonte Booker, despite him managing just 299 yards in 13 appearances last season.

A Kremlin statement said Putin and Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the multi-sided, seven-year conflict that has killed at least half a million people.

President Donald Trump was furious last month when the US announced it would expel 60 Russian diplomats, far less than its Europe allies, although he instructed his aides to "match their numbers" because he didn't want his administration to be perceived as taking the toughest stance on Moscow, the Washington Post reports.

"Saying that it has been a success, we won't know until we see whether the regime continues to use chemical weapons", King said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday.

Guterres said he has asked Syrian special envoy Staffan de Mistura to come to NY as soon as possible to consult "on the most effective way to accelerate the political process".

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the U.S. - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah group that has hundreds of fighters backing Assad's forces, said the airstrikes failed to "terrorize or break the spirits" of Syria and its allies.
