Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says that US -led airstrikes on Syria avoided all of Russia's so-called "red lines".
According to military analysts, the S-300 surface-to-air missile system would improve Russia's ability to control air space in Syria, where Moscow's forces support the government of President Bashar al-Assad, and could be aimed at deterring tougher USA action.
Talking about the risk of a military confrontation between Russian Federation and the US, Lavrov said that he was absolutely confident that Putin and Trump will not allow an armed conflict to happen.
Trump proposed a White House summit when he called Putin on March 20, prior to the mass expulsion of Russian diplomats from the US.
"President Putin is ready for such a meeting", Lavrov told RIA. The proposal has not moved forward since relations between the United States and Russian Federation deteriorated further over an alleged chemical attack in Syria.
A Russian army commander has also said that Moscow would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Assad following US -led strikes.
"He returned to this topic a couple of times, so we let our American colleagues know that we do not want to impose, but we also do not want to be impolite, and that considering that President Trump made this proposal, we proceed from the position that he will make it concrete", said Mr. Lavrov. The U.S., Britain and other Western allies responded by expelling over 150 Russian diplomats, and Moscow, which has fervently denied the British accusations, responded in kind. That prompted the U.S., Britain and France to launch a missile strike on Syria.

On April 7, a number of NGOs, including the White Helmets, alleged that chemical weapons were used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta.

The US attacked Russia's ally, Â Syria, last weekend on the allegation that the Syrian military conducted a chemical attack that killed civilians in a rebel-held area near Damascus.
