Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) speaks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel as they attend a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier by the Kremlin walls in Moscow, Russia, May 10, 2015. Putin stressed the actions by a group of Western countries, which committed "an act of aggression against Syria, grossly violated the norms of worldwide law" and substantially damaged the peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis, TASS reported, citing the statement.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that Russian Federation, as an ally of the Syrian government, bore joint responsibility for the chemical attack in eastern Ghouta earlier this month but she stressed she still meant to keep talking to President Vladimir Putin.

"We know about the use of poison gas in Syria, Russia's ally Assad has overall responsibility, there is no doubt, but nevertheless - it is important to continue to talk with Russia", - said Merkel.
