The director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s non-proliferation and weapons control department, Mikhail Ulyanov, told a news conference on Tuesday that Russia has evidence that terrorists and not the Syrian government used sarin gas in Khan Sheikhoun in April.
“We are keeping a close watch on the situation. There is abundant evidence pointing to terrorists, who exploded a sarin bomb for provocative purposes,” he said.
He then went onto highlight that neither investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Fact-Finding Mission nor experts from the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism have visited Khan Shaykhun and the Shayrat airbase, where Washington says the jets that dropped the chemical weapons came from.
