Russia accuses the United Kingdom of having a part to play in the Ghouta affair


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.
