UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The US believes that the military operation in resolving the Syrian humanitarian crisis was caused by the fact that the Russian Federation was unable to fulfill its obligations as an international guarantor of the destruction of chemical weapons in Syria, a high-ranking representative of the US administration said in a telephone briefing for journalists.
“Russia’s failure (as a guarantor of the destruction of chemical weapons in Syria) is absolutely obvious.” The president did not intend to wait until Russia launches another disinformation campaign to hide the fact that in fact it supports the Syrian regime, “he said.
The United States, Britain and France hit rocket attacks on Syrian government facilities on Saturday morning, which they believe are used to produce chemical weapons. From 3.42 Moscow time to 5.10 Moscow time they released over 100 missiles in Syria, most of which were shot down by Syrian air defense.
The Russian forces were not involved, but they monitored all the launches. Russian President Vladimir Putin described the attacks as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, despite the fact that neither Russian military experts nor local residents confirmed the fact of the chemical attack, which became the pretext for strikes.
