Russia: Allegations on chemical attack in Ghouta provocations seeking to protect terrorists
Moscow, The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the allegations on a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta are mere provocations that seek to protect terrorists and justify attacking Syria.
In a statement on Sunday, the ministry said that Moscow had warned about such provocations that seek to protect terrorists and justify potential attacks on Syria from foreign sides.
The Ministry said that these allegations are based on testimonies by the so-called White Helmets and groups based in Britain and the United States, and those sides have been proven to collude with terrorists.
The Ministry warned that any foreign intervention under fabricated and false excuses in Syria is unacceptable, and could lead to dire repercussions, adding that those who don't want the elimination of terrorists in Syria or a true political settlement for the crisis are trying with all available means to escalate the situation.
