The announcement of new sanctions comes shortly after the US, Britain, and France conducted "precision strikes" in Syria on Friday in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack that reportedly killed dozens, many of them children, in the rebel-held Syrian town of Douma.
But on Monday, Lavrov told BBC: "I can guarantee that Russian Federation has not tampered with the site".
Concern about tampering was raised by the United States envoy to the global chemical weapons watchdog. Britain's Ambassador Peter Wilson said in The Hague that the United Nations had cleared the inspectors to go but they had been unable to reach Douma because Syria and Russian Federation had been unable to guarantee their safety.
Inspectors have not yet been granted access to sites in Douma, the British delegation to the OPCW said Monday, citing the agency's director general.
The U.S. ambassador to the OPCW, Kenneth Ward, said there were suspicions that Russian Federation, a longtime ally of the Syrian government, may have tampered with the evidence.
What else did Mr Lavrov say?
The Syrian regime and Russian Federation deny chemical weapons were used in the final offensive that captured Douma, a rebel-held territory east of Damascus.
According to NATO's disinformation monitors in Europe, they have seen a concerted effort by Russian Federation to deny the Douma attack took place.
Global inspectors are trying to reach the site in Douma, near Damascus.
"I think everyone is going to feel it at this point", she said on CBS.
Iran and Russian Federation should not allow the "fire of a new tension" to flare up in the region, Rouhani said, adding that the airstrikes were an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", IRNA reported.
On Monday, EU foreign ministers met in Luxembourg to discuss the latest developments in Syria. They said they understood the air strikes had "the sole objective to prevent further use of chemical weapons and chemical substances as weapons by the Syrian regime to kill its own people".
"Unfettered access (is) essential", a British statement said.
The French president gave a wide-ranging TV interview on Sunday night saying he persuaded President Donald Trump not to pull troops out of Syria and instead commit "for the long term".
Trump made clear in his eight-minute television address that he is wary of a deeper entanglement in Syria, where about 2,000 US troops have been deployed to fight Islamic State.
But soon after Mr Macron's comments, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said an early exit was still desirable.
What was targeted on Saturday?
Instead, he said, the attack bolstered the confidence of the Syrian army and its allies, as well as probably sinking the already-faltering United Nations -backed peace process on Syria in Geneva.
The proposed sanctions follow USA -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons. "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".
The website noted that the top single web page being promoted was a link to a report on Russia's claim that the Skripals were poisoned with a different toxin to the one identified by the independent chemical weapons watchdog last week.
