A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

"The worst expectations have materialized. Our warnings fell on deaf ears. A pre-planned scenario is being acted on. We are being threatened again," he stated.
"We have warned that such actions will not remain without consequences. All responsibility for them rests upon Washington, London and Paris," he said.
Antonov stressed that "insulting the Russian president was inadmissible."
"The United States, a country that has the largest arsenal of chemical weapons, has no moral right to accuse other countries," he said.
