Following the recent cruise missile strikes on Syria by USA, UK and France RT discusses fallout especially now OPCW investigation has begun.
It would be naïve to think that the chemical attack in Syria and the Skripal scandal are two separate events. They are links in the same chain. With the spy poisoning case leading nowhere, the anti-Russia campaign needs a new impetus. The alleged CW attack is a good pretext to spur the efforts.
As we conclude that agents in, or allied to, the UK conducted the “Skripal Operation” as a provocation, logical conclusions follow; this is a well organised and determined plan with dangerous intent.

There are many, many, many piles of evidence substantiating the fact that the Syrian government has become the target of what is surely one of the largest and most sophisticated propaganda campaigns in human history, but most people don’t have time to comb through all the tiny details and sort through the complexities of what’s what.

As the whole Western world doubles down on the lie that Syria used chemical weapons in Khan Shaikoun, it is time for Russia’s leaders to tell them the raw truth – that the pretext for the US cruise missile strike was entirely fabricated by its proxy forces in Syria.
The chemical agents were found at terrorists’ depots both in Aleppo and in liberated districts in the eastern suburb of Damascus, according to the Syrian deputy foreign minister.
The United States finds its increasingly clumsy, circular foreign policy looping back once again to accusations of “weapons of mass destruction” being inexplicably used against a civilian population, this time in Syria’s northern city of Idlib currently serving as the defacto capital of terrorist organizations including various Al Qaeda affiliates, most notably the US State Department designated foreign terrorist organization, al-Nusrah […]
