In a statement posted to the Kremlin website, Putin called the coalition airstrikes an “act of aggression against a sovereign government” and accused the United States of compounding the humanitarian catastrophe in war-torn Syria.

Putin called for emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council to discuss the attack.
