WASHINGTON, March 2. /TASS/. Statements by representatives of the us administration of the intention to impose on Russia responsible for the alleged use by Damascus of chemical weapons in Syria are the manifestation of cynicism. This is stated in a statement on Thursday the statement of the Russian Embassy in the United States.
“Washington launched a sweeping propaganda campaign, consisting of accusations of Russia’s noncompliance with its obligations in Syria, suggests that it really is not concern about the situation of Syrian civilians, a cold-blooded political calculation: in whatever was to keep extremist enclave in the suburbs of the Syrian capital,” the document reads.
In this case, the Russian Embassy drew attention to the fact that the US “continue to use baseless claims about the use by Damascus of chemical agents as a tool of the anti-Syrian geopolitical engineering”.
“A special manifestation of the cynicism became fresh statements by the representatives of the administration of the intention to impose on Russia responsible for the alleged use of chemical weapons Damascus. This despite the fact that in itself, the administration acknowledged the lack of evidence on this score. They have never been before. Because fake messages completely discredited “White helmets” and other pseudohumanitarian NGOs in Western pleasure, can be considered a cheap farce, not evidence,” reminded the Embassy.
“I would like to warn US against the temptation to use them as pretext for missile strikes on Syrian government targets,” concluded the Embassy.
Accusations Of State Department
On Thursday the head a press-services of the Department of state Heather Nauert during the regular press briefing said that the United States did not announce sanctions against anyone, however, Washington is considering a number of opportunities to attract Russia to justice for attacks on civilians in Syria, where the United States accused the Syrian government.
