Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Friday that Britain was involved faking a suspected chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma. Syria and its main ally Russia deny a chemical attack took place, Reuters reports.

“We have… evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation,” defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.
Konashenkov said that Russia knew “for sure” that between April 3-6, the White Helmets – a group which helps civilians in opposition-held territory in Syria – were “under severe pressure specifically from London to produce as quickly as possible this pre-planned provocation.”
