Now, I hope, no one will gamble on embarking on such a risky venture.
Ms Zakharova suggested that Western media bore some responsibility for the strikes, claiming the White House cited "multiple media sources" on the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.
Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the United States and its allies.
Syria has been engaged in a brutal civil war since 2011, with dictator Bashar al-Assad accused of several war crimes - including the use of illegal chemical weapons against civilians. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security. It also said Russian officers found no patients with chemical attack symptoms at a local hospital, and no indication of any burials having taken place of the victims. The Syrian government was ready to issue visas immediately on the border, without any additional delay.
He added: "At the request of the Syrian government, OPCW experts will be on ground tomorrow".
Russian Federation and the United States are using their channels of communications on Syria, according to the minister.
"And special services of a country, which is now seeking to be in the first ranks of the Russophobic campaign, were involved in this", Lavrov said.
In a reference to the USA, he said that it "it would only benefit those who are protected by the ocean and expect to sit there and engage in continuous efforts to stir up the region in order to advance their geopolitical goals".
"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.
The genuine aim behind the US-led attack on Syria was to "allow terrorists to rest, restore their forces and extend bloodshed", the ministry said, referring to the fact that the strike was carried out "at the time when Syrian troops were further taking a successful offensive against Daesh*, al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups".
"We are open for those contacts, they help to understand each other better", Lavrov said.
