Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, has denounced from
Moscow the role of a Russia-phobic, Western secret service in the White
Helmets’ staging of the alleged chemical attack in the Ghouta, the rural
region at the gates of Damascus, the Syrian capital.

The spokesperson for the Russian army, Igor Konachenkov, has for his part,
directly challenged the United Kingdom.

Both these declarations took place when Syria had just announced new
witnesses regarding the alleged chemical attack, manipulated by Western
powers to heighten international tension regarding Syria.
