Russia accuses OPCW of double standards on the situation in Syria

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) practices double standards in investigating incidents in Syria.

This is stated in the letter of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the organization after the publication of the next report on the possible use of chemical weapons in Aleppo in November 2018.

Russian diplomats pointed to an unreasonable accusation of the Russian Federation of refusing to cooperate with the OPCW on the incident, despite the fact that in January 2019, the Russian military transferred materials and samples related to the case to the Syrian Mission to establish chemical weapons in Syria.

According to the Permanent Mission, the organization is reluctant to investigate cases related to the use of chemical weapons by forces hostile to official Damascus, but it is zealously taken “when there are chemical performances arranged by opponents of the legitimate Syrian authorities.”

In addition, representatives of the Russian Federation called for an equal and mutually respectful dialogue between the participating countries and “abandonment of the practice of double standards.”

On November 24, 2018, terrorists attacked the quarters of Syrian Aleppo. They fired chlorine-containing shells in the residential area of ​​al-Khalidiya, Nile Street and the Al-Zahra region. The attack affected 107 civilians, including women and children.

The next day, the Russian military revealed the artillery positions of the terrorists, after which the Russian airborne forces attacked, destroying the militants.
