the Chemical attack in the Syrian city of Duma was staged by British intelligence. This was stated by the permanent representative of Russia to the the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) Alexander Shulgin. His words convey RIA Novosti on Monday, April 16.
“we Have not just “high confidence” as claimed by a blueprint of our Western partners, and there is irrefutable evidence that no incident of 7 April, the Duma was not, and that all this is a planned provocation of special services of great Britain, perhaps with the participation of their older allies in Washington to introduce the world community astray and justify aggression against Syria,” the envoy said.
He pointed out that the provocation made directly to non-profit organizations that are on a paid basis cooperate with the authorities of the United Kingdom and the United States. Among them, Shulgin established the “White helmets” — a rescue team consisting of Syrians, who have passed special training abroad.
the Envoy added that Washington, London and Paris, who caused an April 14 attack on the Syrian objects are not interested in conducting an objective investigation of what happened in the Duma. Moscow considers the RAID as an act of aggression and an attempt to disrupt the peace settlement in the region, he added.
Earlier in April the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrov said there is incontrovertible evidence that the likely chemical attack in the Duma was staged by intelligence agencies. He pointed out that it involved “state, which is now eager to be at the forefront of Russophobic campaign,” but did not identify him.
