Russian Defense Ministry: UK Is Involved In Staging Chemical Attack In Syria's Douma

Major General Igor Konashenkov during a press conference, By RT TV

On April 13, spokesman for the Ministry of Defense of Russia Major General Igor Konashenkov announced that Russia has an evidence that the UK had pressured the White Helmets organization to provoke a chemical attack in Syria’s Duma on April 7.

“Today, the Russian defense ministry has other evidence proving the United Kingdom’s direct involvement in the organization of this provocation in Eastern Ghouta,” Maj. Gen. Konashenkov said, according to the Russian news agency TASS.

According to the spokesman, the goal of the provocation was to trigger a US attack on the Syrian government.

Maj. Gen. Konashenkov also revealed that Russia had reached some of the people who were directly involved in filming the alleged chemical attack. However, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman didn’t clarify if Russia will be sharing the confessions of those people with the public anytime soon.

According to Konashenkov, a group of people, which was a primary source of photos and footage of the alleged chemical attack, was informed of a large-scale artillery attack on Damascus planned by Jaish al-Islam. The White Helmets were ordered to arrange the provocation after retaliatory strikes by Syrian government forces.

The defense ministry published an interview with a man who said his name was Halil Ajij, and who said he was a medical student working at Douma’s only operational hospital.

“On April 8, a bomb hit a building. The upper floors were damaged and a fire broke at the lower floors. Victims of that bombing were brought to us. People from the upper floors had smoke poisoning. We treated them, based on their suffocation,” he explained the origin of footage.

Then, a man unknown to Ajij came and said there was a chemical attack and panic ensued.

“Relatives of the victims started dousing each other with water. Other people, who didn’t seem to have medical training, started administering anti-asthma medicine to children. We didn’t see any patient with symptoms of a chemical weapons poisoning,” he said.

First Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department Lieutenant General Viktor Poznikhir accused the Western-backed White Helmets, on April 11, of staging the chemical attack in Duma district.

Observers believe that the UK and the US will be in a very difficult diplomatic situation, if Russia proved to the public that the White Helmets played a role in staging the chemical attack in the Duma district.

      Saddam and his nation were innocent just they invaded Iraq for Israeli migrants. Now they want to invade Syria for terrorists Israel, ISIS, Al-Qaeda and PKK.

      Trump, May and Macron like witches deluding the world by fake chemical attacks in Syria to make it reason to invade Syria.

      The witches of US, UK and France have invaded Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Ukraine etc by their buddies Israel, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, SDF etc have done massacre there for grabbing their lands and now Russia are trying their best to stop massacre there and liberate these lands from these witches.

      White Helmets group members are Israel. Israel have deluded the world population by use of electronic and print media a lot. In 2014 Saudi Kingdom and Israeli moron have secretly made the Gaza Palestine war to show the massacre and destruction of Gaza to the world that Assad have done this to their own people in Syria. By this lie Saudi kingdom and Israeli migrants have accelerated the destruction, massacre in whole Syrian nation and totally destabilize the Middle East region.
      Without Saudi Kingdom and Israeli migrants this world will be a better place for living.

      “botched !!” – the under-statement of the year.

      It was totally farcical. It embarrassed both me and my Country.

  • Kell McBanned

    Parade those SAS/MI6 on national TV

    • FlorianGeyer

      I agree BUT its against the Geneva Convention to do that for POW’s and Russia prefers to abide by the rules.
      I would like to see it though.

      Perhaps Russia could say that we found some of your Special Forces who somehow got lost in Syria during a Map Reading Exercise in Iraq who obviously needed help in such a dangerous area and parade them that way ?

      • jerry hamilton

        They have to be paraded, the MOD are as expected, denying it.

      • Redadmiral

        They are not POWs in this instance. They are agents of a foreign hostile power attempting to overthrow a legitimate government.

        • goingbrokes

          You are correct. In the absence of a declaration of war they will be classed as spies or mercenaries, neither of which is covered by the Geneva Convention.

          • Paul Greenwood

            They were not in uniform so they are not covered. Further SAS operate under MI6 command in this situation and they may even be contractors run through cutouts like Sandline or Executive Outcomes

  • Eouz Cuemarz

    Well Macron then, Macron is not telling us the evidence since he already has the proof of chemical attack in Syria long before it took place. lol

    • FlorianGeyer

    EXPOSE UK”S VERY DARK SIDE

  • antoun

    eh there is!!!

  • Temístocles Delgado

    Muy bién el desenmacaramiento de los terroristas ingleses, estadounidenses y franceses hecho por la gran Rusia. Rusia debe demostrar más fuerza porque una actitud demasiado blanda conlleva al envalentamiento de los terroristas.

  • Sergey Tokarev

    And this is really great news, a killing, a knock out for UK. Bravo! A smoking gun is exactly what we needed.

    • Ray

      I wonder if those Brit soldiers captured, have something to do with it.
      Ah yes, I bet they do, a spy can be shot i think

      • Redadmiral

        Indeed they can. However, all that is needed is their photograph’s, their fingerprints and a fax to Interpol. Along with a massive Indy Media campaign. Of course May would deny everything and throw the captured operatives under the first T-90 or 72 that came along.

    • Anja Boettcher

      I only hope they have no chance of denial.

      If this shut up the nastiest transatlanticists in our media, this would be, apart from relief about the cease of danger, a real treat for my stomach too.

      • Stephan Williams

        What the hell is a “transatlanticist? Does that translate into English?

        We need to “call a spade a spade”.

        • Anja Boettcher

          Yeah, that’s right, you folks are a bit dull. Being tied to a language that is strrricktttly a-na-ly-ti-cal, and neither allows passionate expression in neologisms or a rich variety of composita, you believe that a spade is a spade, while people with some imagination know that it might be only a spade in one moment, but may prove to be a bulldozer or a subtle instrument for creating richly flourishing gardens a short time later.

          To make it easy for you: A transatlanticist (my creation) is a lunatic who thinks that cross-Atlantic relations between USAmerica and Europe are indispensable, instead of devastating, for Europe, against all better evidence. Luckily, the US does everything to make sure that this species will die out in Europe soon and weak individuals are by now immune against being infected.

  • svenne svensk

    Let’s share this to the work and all kind of media so it will be impossible to hide the true story behind the attack

    • jerry hamilton

      Come up with a “How To” and I’m in.
      Of-coarse it could reduce life expectancy.

      • svenne svensk

        Facebook let’s link and it will spread fast. Not all read or care to find the true, the most people just like to look at the kardashians and other shit program. People are to easy to controll today

        • jerry hamilton

          Facebook right now are deleting anything to do with it.

  • chris chuba

    Kind of wish Russia didn’t go there unless they have this nailed 8 ways til Sunday.
    If they don’t totally nail this then this will just become another ‘Russia is trying to deflect attention away from their own evil and destroy NATO’ memes.

    Wish they would just focus on Army of Islam staged it. It’s hard enough to convince the west that Islamic Militants, who have a direct benefit in framing Assad would do this without dragging in ‘God Save the Queen’ Brits. Not saying they aren’t right.

    • Redadmiral

      Why lie when the truth is more damning?

  • MikeH

    This is an important accusation. If it was the UK that said it, no more ‘proof’ would be needed. That is not the case so I hope we get this in the public domain quickly.

  • Barba_Papa

    >>However, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman didn’t clarify if Russia

    soon.<<

    Come on Russia, don't play the same game that the West does. Don't say something and then not produce any evidence. The West gets away with that behavior, Russia has to do better then that.

    • Trovak

      I guarantee that BoJo has been informed about it.

  • Tudor Miron

    This RT video is terrible. Looks like this translator deliberetly trying hard to make this video extremely difficult to understand. Something that was very clear in Russian is made to look and sound like some mess.

  • neil barron

    Seems that the Russians have been doing a good job of investigation unlike my country who should have been there the next day looking for the “evidence” not projecting.

  • JustTruth

    Please find a competent translator.

  • chris chuba

    The funny thing is that a hundred years ago, just prior to WW1, the British used to be portrayed as villains to the American public just like the Russians are today.

    Even today, once in a while, if there is a movie where only has an English accent, he’s the villain. Think about it. They tried to take us out 3 times, 1776, 1812, and they supplied the South with weapons during the Civil War. They never did a friggin’ thing for us and we bailed them out during WW1.
    But there was no foreign policy establishment committed to maintaining a Cold War back then. Too bad we have so many goons making the rounds on FOX / CNN now.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Before the First World War, the US Media was not owned by Jews or Zionist or united on anything. They were more honest.
      A fictional character called 007 which was based on a real life British agent infiltrated American media to ramp it up, twist it to demonize the Germanic tribal peoples, and begin consolidating the media under ‘themes’
      By the way, the UK-Empire had the General Sir Arthur James Lyon Fremantle with the Confederate army on secrete assignment. He was even at Gettysburg advising the Confederates how to attack the American forces. And learning how weak the Americans were so the British could how to burn down the new White House again.
      The Queen of England is married to not just any Jew (Prince-Philip) but one of the 4 central Zionist power houses himself.
      The UK made the US conquer Europe for them.
      The UK has genocide every people group on earth at one time or another.
      And often times more then once.

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Too little, too late. The Imperial narrative matters because it’s backed up by action and genuine will to power. The Russian narrative demands no such consideration. What should that narrative be anyway: (A) yes Assad was guilty and we were complicit, and our Imperial punishment was well-deserved; or (B) we are craven cowards who desert our allies at the hour of truth.

    Just go home, you’re no match for Trump.

    Where are the White Helmets ?
