Kurginyan: chemical attack in Idlib is a theatrical performance

07.04.2017, Russia.

Claims regarding the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and its consequences shown in the mass media do not make sense, said Sergey Kurginyan, the leader of the “Essence of time” movement, on April 7th broadcast of “Time will tell”, on Channel 1 of Russian television.

“We watched all of the video recordings of the so-called chemical attack in Idlib.  It’s obvious to those who watched field footage of the chemical attacks from the Iran-Iraq war that Idlib attack has nothing to do with the effects of sarin gas. You see, when sarin gas is used, people cough out parts of their lungs and respiratory equipment cannot be used. Combat stabilizers must be injected and if this doesn’t happen, then death occurs within 2-3 minutes. So, everything that has been shown there is disgusting fakery, and absolute theatrics, because the claims about the use of sarin gas and the effects shown in mass media do not fit together in any way.”

On April 4th, Western media reported the use of chemical weapons by the Russian and/or Syrian air force during an airstrike on the city of Khan-Sheikhun in the Syrian province of Idlib.  As a result, 58 people had died, including 11 children.

On April 7th after midnight, the US Navy fired more than 50 Tomahawk missiles at the Shayrat Air Force base near Syrian Homs, which is also used by Russian Military. The reasoning behind the missile strike was the US White House accusations against Syria, whose planes allegedly took off from Shayrat Air Base, to carry out a chemical attack in Idlib.
