Zheleznyak also confirmed that Assad praised Soviet arms made in the 1970s, which were used to repel the missile attack, carried out by the USA and its allies.
The three Syrian targets ultimately chosen were involved in the "research, development and deployment" of chemical weapons, the Pentagon said. "No local resident confirmed the chemical attack".
The White House says the US mission in Syria has not changed, reiterating that President Donald Trump wants American troops home "as quickly as possible".
The say the airstrikes last Saturday by the three nations were "limited, proportionate and necessary" and followed "only after exhausting every possible diplomatic option to uphold the worldwide norm against the use of chemical weapons".
She accused Syria, aided by Russian Federation, of trying to block an investigation into the gas attack being done by the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog.
The French government said Saturday that it launched a military response based on unspecified intelligence and open-source information, which included "testimonies, photos and videos that spontaneously appeared on specialized websites, in the press and on social media in the hours and days following the attack". It was "a little more than the symbolic strike from past year but steering clear of any major operation".
The present situation in Syria broadly raises one question and one concern. The majority of the more than 350,000 victims of the seven-year conflict have been killed by conventional rather than chemical weapons. Critics have complained that the strikes preempted the probe by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons into the alleged attack on April 7.
The US envoy to the OPCW, Kenneth D. Ward, said he was concerned that Russian Federation may have interfered with the site of the Douma attack.
Prime Minister May defended the strikes as "right and legal", highlighting that the goal had been "to alleviate further humanitarian suffering".
The Chemical Weapons Convention outlaws the production or stockpiling of chemical weapons.
If the USA was really so appalled by the use of banned weapons, why are we the largest exporter of cluster bombs?
The mission is still expected to make it to Douma, where government security agencies and Russian military police have deployed after the town fell under government control, raising complaints from the Syrian opposition that evidence of chemical weapon use might no longer be found.
Russian Federation has condemned the allied strikes on Sunday but refrained from responding to the attack on its ally, Syrian President Bashar Assad.
"The Syrian regime has an abhorrent record of using chemical weapons against its own people". Using chemical weapons amounts to engaging in the most heinous form of warfare and such use should always be contemned.
The United States is preparing to impose sanctions on Russian Federation for "covering up" the actions of the Assad regime. Technically speaking, all these powers have a common enemy called ISIS but, they do not have any common agenda to finish ISIS.
While the U.S. airstrikes may well be behind us, the Syrian front continues to heat up.
