"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".

Konstantin Kosachyov, chairman of the global affairs committee in the upper house of Parliament, said the strikes appeared to have been aimed at preventing an investigation of the alleged chemical-weapons attack that Washington cited as the justification.

After months of criticism that Trump was being soft on Putin, the US president pulled no punches with a Tweet on Sunday: "President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad". Mattis said no additional attacks were planned, though Trump earlier suggested the strikes could last longer. "On the one hand, not hitting Assad harder would be a sign of weakness".
