Russian Federation says Britain staged alleged Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation says Britain staged alleged Syria chemical attack Russian Federation says Britain staged alleged Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation had "refused" supplying those missiles to Syria a few years ago, he added, "taking into account the pressing request of some of our Western partners".

Russian Federation and Syria have stalled access to Douma by worldwide experts seeking to probe an alleged poison gas attack there, citing security concerns, a British diplomat said on Monday.

In a warning to the West against further strikes on Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said it is now considering arming Assad with Russian S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems for the first time.

Medical aid groups and the White Helmets rescue organisation have said such statements - already aired on state television in recent days - were made under duress.

Russian officials had said before the suspected gas attack in Douma that rebels in the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus were plotting chemical attacks to blame the Syrian government and set the stage for a USA strike.

Russian Federation has repeatedly accused rebels of staging or spreading rumours of chemical attacks, but the involvement of Britain is a new claim.

"Cabinet agreed that the Assad regime has a track record of the use of chemical weapons and it is highly likely that the regime is responsible for Saturday's attack".

The Russian Foreign Ministry also claimed that following Syrian rebels' withdrawal from the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus, stockpiles of chemical agents were allegedly found there.

Antonov added: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", and said that the USA "has no moral right to blame other countries" since it possesses a large arsenal of chemical weapons of its own. Putin and Macron instructed their foreign and defense ministers to maintain close contact to "de-escalate the situation", the Kremlin said.

British opposition leader queries May's decision to join military strike against Syria
Speaking on LBC, he said on Sunday: "Theresa May tells us in her speech that we're doing this in our national interest ". The Syrian Regime has a history of using chemical weapons against its own people in the most cruel and abhorrent way.

A day before a team from the global chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Sergey Lavrov said Russian experts have already inspected the site of the alleged attack and found no trace of chemical weapons, adding without elaboration that Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

He says Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication, and intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication".

Nevertheless, experts say the Russian "red line" would be the safety of its own forces, which are based alongside their Syrian and sometimes Iranian comrades in many areas of western Syria.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma has been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces.

President Bashar al-Assad's government - which receives military backing from Russian Federation - has denied involvement in any chemical attack, calling the reports "fabricated".

Russia's theories about last Saturday's suspected chemical attack are reminiscent of previous contradictions.

"We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences".

This evening, the Russian UN Ambassador urged the United States and its western allies - including the UK - not to attack President Bashar al-Assad's forces in an escalating crisis over the alleged chemical attack in Syria.
