Narrative pushed by “expert” American intelligence and political forces continues to unravel, revealing the corruption of foreign policy in Western governments.
Sputnik News has broken a story indicating that the Russian and Syrian claim of no chemical weapons in any Syria government facility is justified. At about 12:00 PM Moscow time on 25 April, Sputnik broke their headline, later followed up with some details:
Last week, the fact-finding mission of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) visited a site in the Damascus suburb of Douma to collect samples in connection with the alleged April 7 chemical attack.
Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy has announced that the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had confirmed that there were no chemical weapons found at the Barzeh research center in Damascus despite the US officials’ claims.
The official further noted that thousands of people could have died if there was any chemical weapon on the sites that were attacked by the US-led coalition.
“Shortly after the airstrikes, many people visited those sites without any protective equipment. No one got any signs of gas-poisoning,” Colonel-General Sergey Rudskoy said.
TASS News Agency has corroborated this story. They also added more from Colonel-General Rudskoy:
“The US, British and French military and political authorities employed unclear logic while choosing targets for their attack. If they really believed that chemical weapons stockpiles actually existed, then their air strikes would have led to a large-scale contamination and as far as Damascus goes, tens of thousands of people would have been killed,” he said.
According to Rudskoi, in any country, chemical weapons facilities are scrupulously protected as they pose a great danger. “However, this cannot be said about the three facilities in question (the Barzeh Research and Development Center on the outskirts of Damascus and the Him Shinshar chemical weapons storage complex). There were only ordinary buildings there. Right after the air strikes, the facilities staff members and onlookers, who did not have any chemical protection equipment, flocked to the sites but no one suffered poisoning,” the Russian general stressed.
He added that neither of the three facilities hit by the US-led strikes had stored chemical weapons.
