Russia has again said they have “irrefutable proof” that the alleged chemical incident in Syria’s Douma was a “false-flag attack,” orchestrated by UK security services with support from the United States.
The latest statement comes from Aleksandr Shulgin, Russia’s envoy to the Organization for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
According to Shulgin, the direct executors of this provocation were pseudo-humanitarian NGOs sponsored by opponents of the Syrian government. “Among them are the notorious ‘White Helmets,’ which some delegations are so fond of praising” he added.
Last week a spokesman for Russia’s defence ministry also said that Moscow had evidence proving that Britain was directly involved in organizing the staged provocation
RT reports: “We have not just a ‘high level of confidence,’ as our Western partners uniformly put it; we have irrefutable proof that there was no chemical attack in Douma on April 7,” Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons Aleksandr Shulgin said at a special meeting of the UN chemical watchdog’s executive council.
The diplomat added that the incident had been a “pre-planned false-flag attack by the British security services, which could have also been aided by their allies in Washington.”
“Things unfolded according to the pre-written scenario prepared by Washington. There’s no doubt, the Americans play ‘first fiddle’ in all of this,” Shulgin said, adding that “attack” was staged by “pseudo-humanitarian NGOs,” which are under the patronage of the Syrian government’s foreign adversaries.
