Russian Federation launches disinformation campaign to defend Syria

Russian Federation launches disinformation campaign to defend Syria

The US ambassador to the OPCW, Kenneth Ward, said there were suspicions that Russian Federation, a longtime ally of the Syrian government, may have tampered with the evidence.

Guterres said "the Cold War is back - with a vengeance but with a difference", because safeguards that managed the risk of escalation in the past "no longer seem to be present".

US President Donald Trump is still reviewing military options available in Syria as diplomatic tensions continue to rumble between Russian Federation and the West.

NATO's East Stratcom Task Force which focuses on countering pro-Kremlin propaganda published the Dininfo Review, which said that there is a "serious risk that Russian Federation wins the information confrontation".

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made this clear on Monday as he arrived at a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg, telling reporters: "I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its frightful, miserable way".

According to Russian Federation, the reports of chemical attacks in Syria are part of a strategy created to justify foreign intervention.

This follows the sharp devaluation of the Russian rouble in the wake of the announcement of swinging U.S. sanctions on the country.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denied the alleged chemical attack in Syria during a press conference Friday.

On April 7, NGOs, including the White Helmets, said that chemical weapons were used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta.

A team of inspectors from the OPCW arrived in Syria on Thursday and Friday and had been expected to start their investigation into the alleged Douma attack on Saturday.

Overnight, U.S., British and French forces launched more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft, targeting three of Syria's main chemical weapons facilities.

The coordinated strikes were in response to the Syrian regime's chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, which allied governments say killed at least 60 people and left hundreds more injured over the weekend.

Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Lavrov reiterated a strong warning to the West against military action in Syria, saying any such "adventures" in Syria would increase flows of refugees into Europe. Footage of young victims foaming at the mouth and weeping in agony has thrust Syria's civil war - in which half a million people have been killed in the past seven years - to the forefront of world concern again.

Macron said Thursday on French national television France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and has crossed a line that could prompt French airstrikes.

The missiles didn't strike any locations where Russian military forces are based; instead, hitting targets they believe are Syrian government chemical weapons labs.

"No CW traces, no victims to be found anywhere, but plenty of empty words and accusations", said Zakharova.

On Sunday, the day after the attack, the U.S. president said Russian President Vladimir Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in rebel-held Douma, because of his support for the Syrian government. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Assad.
