Russia has information that the members of the White Helmets NGO in Syria have close ties with terrorists, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Wednesday.

“We know, we are not just confident, but we know, we have information that the members of the White Helmets have close ties with terrorist groups in Syria, namely Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia). This is confirmed by the reports of independent journalists, who visit Syria, and this concerns both Russian and Western [journalists],” Zakharova said.

But unfortunately, this information is not disseminated in the West on a large scale as “it just does not fit the line and the concept that ‘Assad must go,’” the diplomat said.

The White Helmets have made numerous claims that the aviation of Syria’s government forces delivers strikes against areas where civilians live. This NGO was among those which disseminated reports on the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s Douma on April 7.

The Russian Foreign Ministry slammed this report as a bogus story, and the Defense Ministry said the White Helmets was not a reliable source of information as it was known for spreading fabricated news. Officers from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria visited Douma but did not find any traces of chemical weapons.

“But unfortunately, this information is not disseminated in the West on a large scale” => Yes it is! Everybody knows it! It’s just not disseminated in MSM. When WH puppet-leader (the real leader is MI6 operative James Le Mesurier) was received by François Hollande, the Elysée-Palace Twitter account relating the event was filled by messages accusing them of links with terrorists, false-flags, fabrications, links to pictures and videos showng them armed and teaming with terrorists etc. I don’t remember any posting supporting ’em and… None of these posts were deleted by the Elysée’s staff. Despite the promotion done by MSMs… Read more »

The White Helmets are funded by the US and the UK in spite of their links to terrorists because they can be used by the US as a propaganda instrument to justify military actions against Syria.

It’s obvious, thus, until now, the two military actions using WH stuff as triggers were a bit strange : obviously 2 false-flag chemical attacks followed each by a salvo of 70 then 100 cruise missiles after Russians=>Syrians having been warned it was coming and likely where. On the 1st attack, Russian electronic-warfare strangely crashed the 2 third of missiles, on the 2nd, Syrian IADS intercepted the most of it using Pantsir, Buk, etc, but hey… Normally, cruise missiles closely follow terrain making ’em near undetectable for ground-based radars 😉 Except if they fly at higher altitude, hehe 😉 Then, what… Read more »
