"The U.S. military and its allies, having targeted Syrian military facilities, demonstrated their professional and appropriate response to the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime," the NSDC secretary tweeted.

Turchynov also noted that the Kremlin's aggressive statements and warnings could not stop the just punishment for the Assad regime.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the United States, Great Britain and France pounded Syria with air strikes early on Saturday in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and European Council President Donald Tusk have already spoken in support of the allies' actions.

U.S. President Donald Trump has stated the U.S. is ready to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents.
