Russia condemned on Wednesday the work of The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in Syria, affirming that it has committed rough violations of the basic principle of its work in its “unreliable report” about Syria.
“The experts, who accused Syria of incidents that took place in 2017, have depended on judgments released by the Fact-Finding committee which included rough violations of the basic principle of the OPCW work that stipulates the need for a logic succession of events while collecting and keeping material evidence,” Press office of Russia’s permanent mission at the OPCW said.
It described the current accusations by the report’s experts of OPCW as “untrustworthy,” adding that the new report depends on investigations that were conducted remotely without visiting the places of incidents and it depends on statements of terrorist groups and the so-called “White Helmets” organization.
For his part, Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs at Russian Duma Council, condemned the OPCW’s report which includes accusations of incidents that have happened before three years, stressing that this matter is not permissible because the committee hasn’t depended on real testimonies or evidences according to true logic.
