The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made some remarks about the use of chemical weapons by the foreign-backed militants and terrorists in Syria and also spoke about the Russian experts and their final conclusion that both the shell and the sarin it contained were home-made.
In addition, the Russian lab where the samples were examined and studied is certified by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and it really seems that there is no doubt anymore about the statement of the Russian experts that chemical weapons were already used in Syria (e.g. near the Syrian city of Aleppo earlier this year) by the foreign-backed militants.
The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov not only spoke about the lab and the experts on Wednesday in the Russian capital Moscow, while he underlined that the lab is certified by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, but also said that the conclusion of the experts say that both the shell and the sarin were home-made.
Sergei Lavrov stated afterwards in this press conference in Moscow about the use of chemical weapons in Syria by the foreign-supported Takfiri terrorists and Al Qaeda thugs that, according to the additional information of the Russian government, these used shells and the substance (sarin) were produced in last February in a territory of Syria that was at that time under the control of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and occupied by them and other religious fanatics.
In addition, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also stated afterward, that the substance (sarin) was made by one of the affiliated armed (terrorist) groups in this area of Syria that were at that time occupied by the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA).
Already on Tuesday this week, the Russian ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Vitaly Churkin, said that there is first-hand evidence, which confirms, that the militants and not the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) produced the sarin nerve gas and used it later in an attack near the Syrian city of Aleppo in March (this year).
Russian ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, also stated that the Russian experts collected several samples at the location of the attack in the Syrian region of Khan al-Assal (sometimes also Khan al-Asal) near the city of Aleppo. In this attack on March 19, carried out by the foreign-backed terrorists and jihadists, over two dozen people died, among them were 16 Syrian soldiers.
The Guerillas apparently have somewhat better than merely adequate machine shops and labs. This argues a sophisticated skill search and recruitment program on the part of the guerillas; I’d guess that when one of their skilled technical people is killed that he cannot be easily replaced. That would be a plus. Sarin, if I recall correctly, is manufactured from castor beans, requiring a lot of beans to produce a small amount of Sarin so, how would the guerillas be able to move a large amount of castor beans nearly all the way across Syria? Hmm. It’s good that the Russians collected hard evidence of who actually manufactured and used the Sarin, and have presented the evidence to the UN and made the circumstances public.
