President Putin warned that any US strikes against Syria would be "an aggression," but said Russia would act "in the most decisive and serious way" if there was clear proof presented to the UN of what weapons were used and who used them. He also said a US strike would not be aggression if it were self-defense but that in this case Syria has not attacked the US. The Foreign Ministry accused pro-intervention nations of playing down evidence suggesting that Syrian rebels conducted the Aug. 21 chemical attack; it also warned of the threat that a military intervention might hit a nuclear reactor near Damascus.
