Russia accused the US of trying to prevent the investigation of the OPCW in Syria

RUSSIA (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe US attack on Syria was aimed at disrupting the work of OPCW experts in investigating allegedly chemical substances in the territory of the Arab Republic, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoy, chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, said at a briefing in Moscow.

“The blow was struck precisely the day when a special mission of the OPCW to investigate the incident in the city of the Duma, where chemical weapons were allegedly used, should begin to work in Damascus. I want to specially draw your attention to the fact that there are no chemical weapons production facilities in Syria that was recorded by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.This fact of American aggression shows the US lack of interest in the objectivity of the ongoing investigation, the desire to disrupt the peace settlement process in Syria and to stabilize the situation in the Middle East and has nothing to do with the declared goals of the fight against international terrorism,” said Rudskoy.
