Press conference of the Permanent Representation of Russia to the OPCW on the staged ‘chemical attack’ in Douma

Saturday, 28 April 2018 10:51

On April 26, Russian Permanent Representative to the OPCW, Ambassador Alexander Shulgin delivered an address at the OPCW briefing with participation of the residents of the Syrian city of Douma. During the address, the clear evidence of the crude provocation made by the “White Helmets” on April 7 in Douma was presented to the member states of the Convention on the Prohibition and Elimination of Chemical Weapons. Undoubtedly, the video produced by the “White Helmets” was a clear staging. Therefore, the references of our Western partners to this report as the evidence of the alleged use of chemical weapons in Eastern Ghouta are completely unfounded. Nevertheless, Russia once again appealed to refrain from confrontation in order to find solutions to the emerging issues with mutual respect and due regard to each other’s legitimate interests based on international law.
