From a Wall Street Journal article quoting the Russian government response to a perceived outrage --

"What happened today is beyond all bounds. We think this is a very strange situation, given the nature of our relationship," said Russia's first deputy prime minister, Igor Shuvalov, according to the Interfax news agency. He said Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has been informed and urged Russia's Foreign Ministry to use "all possible levers" to resolve the matter.

Could this be the Kremlin finally asking why their pal Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons?

No, they're just upset that Belarus is playing hardball in a cartel dispute about potash.
