Russia: Syria chemical attack 'fabrication' by foreign intelligence agency

Russian Foreign Minister

Russia's "tendencies" to be a rogue state pose troubles at finishing the strife at Syria, " Karen Pierce, " the U.K.'s ambassador to the un, informs Foxnews. This statement is contained in a press release from the U.S. European command (EUCOM). And the Defense Ministry even made sure to note that while Syria shot down some cruise missiles, Damascus did so using its own, Soviet-made - not Russian-made - equipment. Air was launched 19 missiles from two United States air force bombers B-1B Lancer.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, on Friday accused Russian Federation of lies and covering up for Assad, which she said had used chemical weapons at least 50 times in the past seven years of warfare. The United States, Britain and other nations in February accused Russian Federation of releasing the "NotPetya" virus, which in 2017 crippled parts of Ukraine's infrastructure and damaged computers across the globe, costing companies billions of dollars.

"We called for an objective investigation".

Russian officials denied any involvement during the most violent days of the fighting between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed forces in eastern Ukraine in 2014, while journalists and Western intelligence agencies reported tanks pouring across the Russian border into the Ukraine. It cited the Russian Ministry of Defense.

A United States official told Reuters news agency the attacks were aimed at multiple targets and involved Tomahawk cruise missiles.

"The mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has set off to Syria not so quickly and without abundant enthusiasm but under our and Syrian pressure".

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich says global relations should not depend on the mood of one person when he wakes up in the morning, in apparent reference to US President Donald Trump, RIA news agency reports.

Syrian flags flew in Douma on Monday, security forces stood on street corners and Russian military police patrolled the streets. State aid trucks handed out bread, rice and pasta to people who had lived under siege for years.

Trump has slammed Russian Federation for its partnership with "Gas Killing Animal" Assad, spurring concerns that a USA strike could lead to a conflict with Russian Federation, which has major military facilities at Tartus and Khmeimim and works cheek-by-jowl with Syria forces that could be targeted.

The European Union has also looked to impose fresh sanctions on Syria including blacklisting more people over the development and use of chemical arms.

At a meeting in Luxembourg, the 28 European Union foreign ministers endorsed the missile strikes and considered steps to deepen Assad's isolation.

"Those three countries - the US, Britain and France - if they think they can attack us and attack our sovereignty, at the time, we would have no other choice except applying Article 51 of the charter that gives us the right to defend ourselves, the legitimate right to defend ourselves", Jaafari said.

Russia's foreign minister said on Friday that a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was staged with the help of a foreign intelligence agency, without specifying or providing evidence, and sternly warned the West against proposed military action.

The Trump administration did not lay the blame only at the feet of Syria's leader.
