    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has rebuffed the claims that Russian experts tampered with the evidence as they visited the site of an alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma.
    The “concern” that Russia “may have tampered” with the site of the purported attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7 emerged in media reports on Monday, which cited Kenneth Ward, US Ambassador to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). While Western leaders rushed to pin the blame for the incident to the Syrian government, a team of Russian specialists managed to reach the site last week and found no traces of chemicals or apparent victims of a chemical attack. Ward hasaccused Russian experts of having the “intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation.”

    Responding to those allegations during an interview to BBC, the top Russian diplomat stressed that he “can guarantee” that Russia did not tamper with the site.

    When asked about the evidence the Western leaders presented to the world, Lavrov pointed out they have presented none – only the reports in question.

    “You quoted the leaders of France and [the] UK and the United States. And frankly speaking, all the evidence which they quoted was based on the media reports and on social networks,” the minister said.

    The alleged use of chemical weapons has not been confirmed by the international chemical watchdog, the OPCW. Notably, a special team tasked with investigating the issue had just arrived in Syria when the trio of Western states – the US, the UK and France – launched strikes against the Syrian targets. Moscow said that the move was actually aimed at thwarting the watchdog’s operation.

    OPCW inspectors came under fire in town fully controlled by Assadists and Russians.



    If Russia and Assadists have nothing to hide, why they are preventing OPCW from visiting the site?

    They will allow inspection once the clean-up operation has finished.

    The Americans say that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, so the Americans want to start the war in Iraq in 2003.
    Where is Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction?
    Until today, why have Americans not found so-called weapons of mass destruction?


    Does the United States really need a reason in order to invade other countries?

    The problem with most people is that they are fuc.king dumb. They are like cattle being directed by a sheep dog. Syria chemical attack was just a blatant lie. Watch the following video of the so called victim in the gas attack and make your own minds if you have one.

    If chemical attack was a lie why Assadists and Russia refuse OPCW team to visit that place? What they are hiding?

    Attack is over long time ago but Assad and Russia still prevent OPCW from visiting Douma. The only possible explanation is that Assad and Russia want to hide something from the OPCW.

    And I said Americans already accused Assad and Russia,a guilty verdict, by passed the UNCS and attacked Syria as punishment as if they are judge and jury and international sheriff ...
    So when,
    They didn't provide the coordinations of the alleged chemical sites for OPCW to be investigated and eventually opted to attack.
    Already given their verdict without any investigation by OPCW.
    Already punished Assad by targeting Syrian buildings for chemical attack in exact day OPCW was schedule to enter Syria.
    Then probably there is no need for such a visit.
