Russian Federation says alleged chemical attack in Syria staged by UK

Russian Federation says alleged chemical attack in Syria staged by UK

RUSSIA'S foreign minister has claimed a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was fabricated with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.

"We continue to observe unsafe military preparations for an illegal act of force against a sovereign state", he said.

"As you have heard, the U.S. president, the prime minister of Great Britain, the French president said that they had irrefutable facts proving that it was Assad who used chemical substances in Douma". He didn't elaborate or name the state. The ministry also pointed at previous use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

Asked about possible USA strikes on Syria, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".

Western countries are aligning themselves with jihadists in Syria and seeking to dismember the country, Russia's Foreign Ministry said.

A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a news briefing Thursday that the threat to use force against a member state of the United Nations is a "blatant violation of the UN Charter".

Information emerged that the Pentagon justified the US-led missile strikes on Syria before the OPCW's conclusions also by "the fact that Damascus blocked" access of experts to Eastern Ghouta, Lavrov said Saturday.

Russian officials had said before the suspected gas attack in Douma that rebels in the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus were plotting chemical attacks to blame the Syrian government and set the stage for a USA strike. Lavrov spoke to reporters in Moscow yesterday.

"I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", he said. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

Moscow is urging to immediately put an end to the West's unsafe policy line towards ruining the accords on Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"As for the channels - and they are periodical conversations between presidents and quite regular channels between the military - they are being used", the minister said. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in Eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Mr Al Assad. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were continuing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

The minister remarked that instability in Syria could result in unforeseen consequences that Russian Federation and its European neighbors would prefer to avoid, and that only "those protected by ocean, who hope to stay safe as they stir up things across the region in order to advance their geopolitical projects" would welcome such development.
