The West is making ethnic Russians "the Jews of the 21st century" accusing them of all mortal sins and misfortunes

Summary of Disinformation

The Western accusations now make the Russians “Jews of the 21st century” accusing Russians of all mortal sins and all misfortunes. Russia answers to these accusations by defending its own interests. It brought 17 witnesses to OPCW who proved that the videos on Douma chemical attack were fabricated.

Repeating recurring disinformation equalling the West with the Nazis. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=russia+jew&disinfo_issue=&date=  and on chemical attack in Douma, Syria. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=douma&disinfo_issue=&date=

17 countries stated that Russia's so-called information meeting at OPCW headquarters was "nothing more than a crude propaganda exercise."

"The authenticity of the information gathered to date on the chemical attacks that occurred in Duma on 7 April, through numerous testimonies, is unassailable. Medical NGOs have found traces of chemical agents on the victims. Photographs and videos, numerous and mutually reinforcing, have been authenticated. The symptoms of more than 500 patients who presented on the same day of the attack in health care facilities undoubtedly corresponded to gas intoxication. The WHO has expressed its concern at reports from its partners of patients exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals. We expect this information to be tested and verified by the FFM through its independent examination." nl.ambafrance.org/Syria-OPCW-Joint-Statement-26-april-2018

For background:

On 7 April 2018, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.
