Russian Official Claims Chemical Attack In Syria Was 'Staged'

Russian Federation today accused the West of having the sole aim in Syria of overthrowing the government as it urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action.

Around 75 people, including children, were killed in the Douma assault, United Kingdom officials said, while 500 people were treated in the attack's aftermath with symptoms consistent with chemical weapons exposure, the World Health Organization reported.

Moscow warned against any strikes and threatened to retaliate.

Lavrov also denied the use of chemical weapons in Douma and said the event did not take place.

Maj Gen Konashenkov said Britain was "directly involved in the provocation".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview to the BBC said: "I can guarantee that Russia has not tampered with the site".

Meanwhile, leaders from the U.S., France and Britain have said the Syrian government was responsible.

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

Nikki Haley told an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called by Russian Federation that should the USA and its allies decide to act in Syria it will be to defend "a bedrock global norm that benefits all nations" - the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been backed in the seven-year-long Syrian war by Russia, Iran, and Iran-backed Shi'ite groups from across the region, including Lebanon's Hezbollah. "Russian Federation can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and cover-ups", Haley said.
