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.”

British U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce denied Britain was in any way involved. “This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we’ve yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine,” Pierce told reporters.Former leader of the Norwegian Labour Party, former Prime Minister of Norway, current NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, pledges in this tweet his support to the UK-US-France attack on Syria just when American and British army Generals openly admit that Assad, not the West, won the war in Syria. This is in violation of international law, without UN mandate, without UNSC mandate and before an investigation even has begun into 1. whether a chemical attack ever took place or if the whole event is filmed in a White Helmets production, and 2. if the attack did occure, Stoltenberg supports an attack on Assad’s Syria before it is even established by an international investigation whether the alleged attack was done by extremist islamists, moderate rebels or Assad forces. This is the level of leadership in NATO and this is the level of leadership by the neo-con Norwegian Jens Stoltenberg, with no respect for international law or the United Nations. The legacy of Jens Stoltenberg will be of a man who began his life in opposition to NATO and ended it supporting totalitarian regimes’ violations of every concept of judicial principles of examining the facts before one punishes an alleged culprit, the very principles that traditionally were the foundational principles of the West.
