Russia has urged the United States not to pursue unilateral military action in Syria, warning it could have a "devastating impact" on the security situation in the Middle East.

Any unilateral military action bypassing the United Nations will ... lead to further escalation (in Syria) and will affect the already explosive situation in the Middle East in the most devastating way.
