Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the US statement on chemical weapons in Syria

In Moscow, they believe that the US statements on the use of chemical weapons by the SAR government are written with a view to a possible increase in interference in the internal affairs of the republic, reports RIA News Comment of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The ministry reminded that 21 on August 2013 of the year in the suburb of Damascus Eastern Guta had been applied the poison substance sarin.

As a result of this inhuman action, according to various estimates, about 1400 people suffered. A specially created UN mission led by the Swedish professor O. Sölström did not identify those responsible for this crime. At the same time, she, in fact, confirmed the conclusions of Russian experts about the provocative nature of the use of sarin by handicraft production by extremist groups,
the commentary says.

In this regard, the Foreign Ministry expressed outrage that “the White House, the State Department and the US Plenipotentiary to the UN four years later, in one voice, accused the government of Bashar al-Assad of the terrorist attack in Eastern Gut.”

In addition, "it is also a matter of concern that the United States actually, on behalf of the international community, categorically accused official Damascus of using April 4 chemical weapons in the Syrian Khan-Sheikhun," the department said.

Thus, the Syrian government is guilty of concealing part of its military chemical potential, which would mean its direct violation of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical weapons. Moreover, it is responsible for the use of toxic substances against the civilian population of Syria,
the document says.

According to the Foreign Ministry, "this causes a categorical rejection," because the OPCW confirmed that "Syria’s chemical arsenal was completely destroyed under international control."

We do not exclude that such unsightly official comments are written with an eye to a possible future increase in interference in intra-Syrian affairs,
concluded in the Russian department.

    They know for sure that in Syria there is a chemical weapon, because they themselves put it there. In one detail, not the SAA but the militants.

    There is a suspicion that another hype about gas in Syria is the cover of Afghan affairs of the United States

    What remains for the Americans to do if lately everything is not in their favor. You will no longer shut up your mouth to those who are trying to tell the truth about their attacks on the civilian population, about the direct support of ISIS, about chemical weapons with the stigma of the United States and Britain. There remains a proven method - the transfer of arrows to another.

      When allies around the world are in control, this method works. The people are afraid of losing the feeling of comfort and hawks all nonsense, and the "elites" dance as they command. When they see, it would not be too late

    Let Americans better explain how ammunition with chemical filling turned out to be in the barmaley in Syria? Ammunition marked with the USA and Britain. The righteous are unfinished.
