Disinfo: The reports about the chemical attack allegedly carried out by…


The reports about the chemical attack allegedly carried out by the Assad air forces in the province of Idlib, are pure falsification because Syria doesn’t possess any chemical weapons now: The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirmed this fact in its report in 2014.


On April 19th, the OPCW Director-General Üzümcü stated clearly: “The results of these analyses from four OPCW designated laboratories indicate exposure to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance. While further details of the laboratory analyses will follow, the analytical results already obtained are incontrovertible.” bit.ly/2oMigR9, . On August 24, 2016, the OPCW submitted to the UN a report confirming the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime after the date when the Syrian authorities pledged to stop using it and completely transfer it for destruction [see the ‘Letter‘ (24 August, 2016) from the Secretary-General addressed to the President of the Security Council (the third report of the OPCW-UNJIM) – issued by the third report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons-United Nations Joint Investigative Mechanism bit.ly/2qajkfE, .

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

The US are designing military threats – the war in Ukraine, Daesh and a conflict with North Korea – in order to take Russia and China.


No evidence given. Western military action in Syria and Iraq has clearly targeted Daesh. Western support for the Syrian opposition's success in retaking Dabiq represented a major defeat for Daesh.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
