A Bit Of Official Russian Sarcasm Toward Western Media Campaign

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova’s response to a media question regarding the OPCW experts’ access to Douma (source):

Question: What can you say about some Western media outlets’ claims that Russia is blocking the OPCW Fact Finding Mission experts’ access to the town of Douma?

Maria Zakharova: First, I would like to note that we support Director General of the Technical Secretariat of the OPCW Ahild Uzumlu’s decision to send the FFM inspectors to Douma to study the situation on site, namely, to collect evidence, such as soil samples, to run some tests on the people possibly affected by the attack, and so on. Under the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, all of that should be done only by authorised OPCW inspectors. Then, the evidence is sealed and delivered to certified OPCW laboratories (certified means that their findings are trusted by the OPCW and the entire international community).

I am confident that the entire world wants the OPCW inspectors to have unfettered access to the site of the alleged chemical incident in Douma and do their job. The issue is about providing a firm answer as to whether any poisonous agent was used in Douma on April 7 or not. The stakes are high. After all, the alleged use of chlorine in this town served as a pretext for the western “troika” to launch airstrikes on Syria on April 14 without the sanction of the UN Security Council and in a flagrant violation of the fundamental principles of the UN Charter.

What is particularly cynical is that as soon as a team of international experts went to Syria to conduct the investigation, the “defenders of democracy” in the person of the United States and Britain went ahead with a missile attack on Syria. It was after this “air intervention” that representatives of the UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS), the OPCW experts, the Syrian authorities and representatives of the Russian military contingent in Syria had to urgently revise the plans regarding visiting the site of the alleged chemical attack, work out access routes, and re-negotiate the arrangements with the local forces. All the more so, since the irreconcilable militants have once again stepped up their activities in that region in the wake of such “constructive actions” by the United States and Great Britain.

Against this background, the disinformation campaign launched in the Western media claiming that Russia and Syria allegedly hamper the international inspectors’ access to Douma looks at least unseemly. Notably, Russia cannot block the FFM work by definition. After all, it was Russia that supported the Syrian government’s request to the Director General of the OPCW Technical Secretariat to send the OPCW experts to Douma. It is the Syrians and us who are accountable to the entire international community, the Director General of the OPCW, and finally the families, relatives and friends of the courageous FFM inspectors who, despite the difficulties involved, are determined to fulfill their duty.

It’s a shame that some people still want to accuse the Syrian and Russian authorities of neglecting and failing to fulfill their obligations to ensure free access to the site of the alleged chemical incident in Douma. Apparently, they are only too willing to risk the lives of OPCW experts in order to promote the disinformation they spread in the media.

We are not going to fall for these provocations. Russia is doing its part of the work in an exceptionally responsible, highly professional and reliable manner.

    Slammed like a boss! It is shame that country like Russia has got such weak economy in comparison to Europe or China, Putin would be the most respected guy in the world, not that old hag who died a couple hours ago!

  • jerry hamilton

    Told exactly as it is.
    Someone doesn’t want this chemical investigation to go ahead.
    “GUNMEN opened fire on unarmed UN chemical weapons inspectors in Syria probing the use of banned poison gas by leader Bashar Al Assad”.

  • Rob

    Zionists looking for excuses to prolong their stay on the Syrian land.

  • Rob

    Iron is red hot just Mr. Putin should hammer it. This is the last opportunity with Syria and their allies and should use it. Russia should Kick out all Israel from Ukraine, Palestine, Gollan Heights, Al-Tanf, North and East Syria by using 1000kg smart bombs and Iskander missile as soon as possible.
    Israeli morons repeatedly challenging Russian, and the whole Muslim world including Syrian and Iranian armies. Saying fight me if you can. LOL

    Empire Files: How Palestine Became Colonized.
    Before 1900 there were no Jew in Palestine but as British forces entered in Palestine so they brought Jews with themselves to Palestine. No to two state solution. Mahmoud Abbas should not do favour to Israel for two state solution in Palestine. There will be no peace in Palestine until complete removal of illegal European migrants (fake Israel) from Palestine. Mahmoud Abbas should not allow Israel on his land because that is a big threat to the surrounding countries in Middle East.

  • Rob

    Any terrorist whether that is foreign soldiers or local rebels or White Helmets they are all hardcore terrorists and they will not leave Syria easily. So its better for Syrian nation to put IEDs in the asses of these hardcore terrorists and in this way Syrian nation should bother them to leave Syria.

  • Rob

    The Israeli snippers were also busy in the overthrow of the democratically elected Ukrainian Government. Over 100 civilians and policemen were shot in the head by mysterious snippers reported to be Israelis. Israel also created chaos in Afghanistan in 1980 war, Georgia, Armenia, Serbia, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and so on. Israel are the monsters, murderists, terrorists.

    Israeli terrorists have kidnapped Ahed Tamimi and her parents at midnight by gunpoints. Nobody knows where Israel have kept them hostage. Each year Israel kidnap thousands of adults and small kids from the streets and hold them hostage. Many of them Israel kill in fake combats. The US and UK brutal regimes have invaded Palestine and have held all Palestinians hostage for last 100years. They support brutality and terrorism in the Middle East. If Vietnam can be freed from American regime army then Palestine can also be freed from US and UK. Israel should go back to their native countries.

    • Java Ape Timelord

      Ahed is a brave girl and an inspiration to those who are oppressed.

    Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) which are developing biological and chemical weapons. It is located in Ness Ziona, 20 kilometers south of Tel Aviv from where chemical plant had supplied to terrorists in Syria to produce chemical weapons and use them against Syrian nation.
    In late 1982 another CW nerve agent production facility and a storage facility were identified at the Dimona, Negev Desert.

    Israel produces its nuclear weapons at the Negev Nuclear Research Center. Israel already has 400 active nuclear weapons with 5kt to 250kt yields. Most of Raw material and other technologies had been supplied by Washington, UK and France to Israeli brutal migrants.

    The Israeli aerospace hardware manufacturing facilities produces Jerico I/II/III Ballistic missiles from 70km to 11000km range, cruise missiles, UAVs, SAM missiles etc. in the city of Lod in the Central district.

  • Rob

    These morons create fake / false accusations to invade any country in the world. Then other morons in the world also join them to enjoy the misery of an unarmed country. For example Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and so many other dozens countries that these morons have bombed them just on false/fake accusations.

    Adolf Hitler Speech – Must See – Exposing Zionists and their MSM ….

    I love Adolf Hitler he was genius and a great leader. He had fought for us to protect us from Zionists. What we are talking about now he had told us 80 years ago. If he was alive now so the whole world population would be very prosper and developed. Zionists think that they are superiour from whole world population and hats and lies about other nations in the world to justify their attacks on them. Zionists fight through US, UK and France. Adolf Hitler was against Zionists. He said in his speeches that if we leave Zionists then they will massacre millions of innocents in the world. We must protect the world population from Zionist oppressors.

    • jerry hamilton

      At that time the zionists were called Bolsheviks and they did indeed murder tens of millions of Christians in Russia.
      The whole of Germany witnessed this and Hitler wanted to stop communism infecting Europe.
      Winston Churchill even wrote a newspaper article about the jewish Bolsheviks.

      • Rob

        Zionists were enemy of Christians, Germans, Russians and Muslims. That is why Adolf Hitler wanted to nutrilize all Zionists in the world.

        • nshah

          yeah to neutralized by callobrating with another zionis scum Winston Churchill and sat on the same table discussing how to murder humanity.. Just don’t whitewash them.. there are lots of different versions & perspectives regarding these zionis stories..! They’re all murderer of humanity..!

      • Alberto Campos

        Zieg Heil Jerry!

        • jerry hamilton

          Naturally zionists are very upset the world is learning of their evil ways.

    • nshah

    • jerry hamilton

      Rob, they started doing that in 1948.

      • Rob

        Since 1900 when British forces have invaded Palestine. Palestine is still under British occupation.

        • Java Ape Timelord

          The people of Palestine can trace their roots back to the Hebrews.

          • Rob

            Yes this is correct but Zionist Israel cannot trace because they have been migrated from UK. Second majority of Zionist Israel are secular mean they have no faith. Zionist just became Jew for the grabbing of Palestinian land.

          • jerry hamilton

            There is one thing that they can most certainly trace.
            If Israel belonged to someone else, they would kick the jews out too.

          • nshah

            Well, that’s true if you’re talking about the Real Jews that lived hand in hand with their Arabs brothers peacefully b4 the brits came..! Whatever jew you have now in the land of Palestine are zionist jew aka Khazars..! Which had been proven not a single drop of Semitic blood in their DNA..!
            And yes.. every colonial bastards are still squizzing their ex colonies for payment of being independent.. Just ask the French about it.., which had been proven by all the colonized African nation they invaded..! Same with the brits one way or the other..!

        • jerry hamilton

          That makes no sense. Do you have a link for it?

          • Rob

            I have posted a detailed statement on this some two months ago. If you look before 1900 there were no Zionist Israel in Palestine even 1%. After that when British forces invaded Palestine then the Zionist buildup begun but still Zionist in Palestine are in minority. I have given detail data about Palestine and their population some two months before.

    inFO WARS is on the TRUTH will PREVAIL AMONG the many LIES from MSM

  • chris chuba

    FOX news was echoing the conspiracy theory that the Russians were blocking the OPCW investigators because especially since they didn’t want them to interview the survivors. Interview survivors? I thought the groups specialty was in forensic analysis of physical data, not in doing interviews.

    Now that Duma is in govt control, why not insist on examining at least 2 dead bodies that people say were killed by chemical weapons, it has only been 11 days.

  • russ

    This is a n Energizer Bunny, oh shit moment for my (US) ZOG. It just keeps going and going. When caught in a hand in the cookie jar moment, it’s supposed to last for a, well, moment. My ZOG has a deer in headlights situation that has lasted weeks. It was awkward for our proxy terrorists to fold up so soon after this fake gas attack. Kind of hard to sanitize the site if you lose control of it in a couple of hours. Like all unsustainable lies, the ZOG has to keep lying, even spend $200million plus to prop them up. Look how much it has cost to keep the moon landing hoax alive. Our whole culture has been perverted over that lie.
