“Moscow responds to the incident on 4 April the attack, using the same familiar scheme to which she resorted in response to other horrific actions. It spreads many conflicting messages to create confusion and sow doubt in the international community”, — the document says.
The report provides examples of such contradictory messages. So, Russian version, on 4 April, the aircraft of the Syrian air force bombed warehouses of the terrorists on the outskirts of Khan shaykhun. At the same time, Syrian military sources, the document says, reported that government aircraft carried out flights in the area at this time.
