The OPCW is in crisis, while Western countries are lying about chemical attacks in Syria

Summary of Disinformation

Western countries deliberately hide the details of the chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma on 7 April 2018, because the attack did not happen; this is another fake from the Western leadership. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons hides these facts, in order not to be the violator of international law.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria.

In March 2019, the OPCW confirmed in its final report that chlorine was used in the attack on Douma, April 7, 2018.

According to the Berlin Non-Profit Organisation Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi), chemical weapons were used more than 300 times in Syria.

Syrian government forces and their ally Russia continue to deny these facts.
