RUSSIA SAYS US STRIKE ‘ILLEGITIMATE,’ ATTEMPT TO DISTRACT FROM IRAQ

Russia's deputy U.N. envoy, Vladimir Safronkov, condemned on Friday "illegitimate" U.S. strikes in Syria and said the consequences for regional and international stability could be extremely serious.

He described the U.S. strike - over a deadly toxic gas attack - as "attempt to distract attention from the many victims amongst the peaceful population in Iraq and Syria caused by unilateral actions."
