The Russian state-run news agency TASS reports:

The Russian military has uncovered a militants’ lab for the production of chemical weapons and the storage of its components in the Syrian town of Douma, specialist of Russia’s radiation, chemical and biological protection force in Syria Alexander Rodionov told the Rossiya-24 TV Channel on Tuesday.

“During the inspection of the town of Douma, a chemical laboratory and a chemicals warehouse were found,” he said.

“While inspecting them, specialists of the radiation, chemical and biological protection force discovered chemical substances controlled by the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The specialists found such substances as thiodiglycol and diethanolamine required for obtaining sulfur and nitrogen mustards. Besides, at the warehouse the specialists found a canister with chlorine similar to the chemical used by the militants to stage a disseminated fake episode. A conclusion can be made that this laboratory was used by illegal armed formations for the production of chemical agents,” Rodionov said.

Some non-governmental organizations, including White Helmets, claim that chemical weapons were used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, on April 7. According to the statement posted on the organization’s website on April 8, chlorine bombs were dropped on the city to kill dozens and poison other local civilians who had to be brought to hospital.

The Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed that as fake news. The Russian Defense Ministry stated that White Helmets were an unreliable source, notorious for disseminating falsehoods. The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the Warring Sides on April 9 examined Douma to find no traces of chemical weapons.

On April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France delivered a massive missile strike against Syria’s military and civil infrastructure facilities, claiming that their actions were in response to an alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma by the Syrian government troops.

    Good, the OPCW can make a stop there too. Perfect timing.

      Will they though ? Or will some lame excuse be made as to why they cannot ?

        I bet the UN documents/
        permissions that have been granted is worded in a way to limited and restricted their investigation to the specific accusations against the Syrian government, so I suspect they also will not investigate the chemical labs of militants or to the areas bombed by the West.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Yes, the manipulation of reality with a narrow remit.
          A US/UK/EU government lawyers method of hiding the truth.

  • That militant production and storage plant is the animal. The Assad, nonetheless, was not identified into this sector of Douma. I know the blackmail and the fake propagande and media news for what is the problem I think.

    Great. But like I said before, the Russians could have live video of the Douma White-helmet head-choppers mixing up a batch of Sarin and using it on those 4000 missing hostages …and the west would do absolutely nothing. In fact, where’s the US response to those ‘missing’ hostages? Where’s the Tomahawks at the head-choppers for that?

    CENTCOM has now used more cruise missiles against Syrian forces and allies the last year than it has against al Qaeda and ISIS the last seven years. Good job, you treasonous Israeli-firster, Saudi-fellating fucks. Take that American flag off your shoulder. You mock everything it was supposed to stand for.

    • matt

      what did that shitty flag or ANY other flag stand for anyway? A bunch of lies!!!

    • viktor ziv

      And one more question; where are those NGO Nobel prize White Helmets? They seems to disapear from liberated area. Are they migrating with headchoppers? If so, it means white helmets = headchopers, hence Nobel prize winners with some level of respect must return those prices back to Oslo.

        Locals say they all bailed out of Douma and left on the busses. Fisk said none left there. Found abandoned ‘White Helmet’ station with a pile of discarded camouflage fatigues.

      Well EU is upset with the Tripartite and have said they have been embarrassing and undermining the UNSG authority. Time for some of these countries being expelled from the UN and the UNSC being changed.

    An analysis of those precursor chemicals will reveal who made them — even down to the facility that manufactured them (if the containers did not have labels on them).

  • goingbrokes

    The country that used Agent Orange on a massive scale, with the effects still there today, but never showed any remorse about it tries to prevent others using chemical agents!?! There’s something wrong in this picture.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Well Trump is Agent Orange so they used it again recently.

        But luckily the screwball stuff from Trump is throwing spanners in the globalist works!
