The General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces revealed the results of analysis of Syrian Douma soil taken immediately after the alleged chemical attack.

“I want to emphasize that on April 9, a day after the alleged chemical attack in the Douma, Russian military specialists in the field of radiation, chemical and biological defense, as well as military doctors arrived directly to the site of the alleged incident,” First Deputy Head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir said.

He noted that the experts “took soil samples, collected fragments from the so-called place of the alleged chemical weapons attack,” stressing that their expertise “showed the absence of nerve agents and chlorine-containing poisonous substances.”

“As a result of the examination of the territory, the visit to the medical facility shown on the set of the White Helmets, the interview of the medical staff and the patients, neither facts of the use of poisonous substances nor injured among the inhabitants of this city were detected,” he stressed.

The experts have investigated the reports that appeared in early April, when several media outlets, citing Syrian militants, accused Damascus of carrying out a chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma.
