Russia will press for putting the non-governmental organization White Helmets on trial for crimes committed in Syria, including faked videos of chemical attacks, the director of the Foreign Ministry’s department of new challenges and threats, Ilya Rogachyov, told TASS in an interview on Tuesday.

“The leading Western countries have failed to place the struggle against terrorism above their own time-serving political interests. In the sphere of international counter-terrorism cooperation, various selective approaches thrive. Terrorists are rated as ‘bad’ and ‘not very bad’. Countries are being forced to agree with the concept of ‘resistance to violent extremism’ and its dangerous elements that create situations for ousting ‘disfavored’ governments,” Rogachyov said.

“The Western sponsors are keen to present the contractors on their payroll in a favorable light as ‘envoys of peace’ in order to use this as a cover to push ahead with political destabilization scenarios.”

“We are determined to push ahead with and safeguard Russia’s foreign policy positions in order to ensure the White Helmets’ crimes in Syria and their attempts to mislead the international community by means of fake chemical weapons attacks attributed to the Syrian government forces, just as any other terrorist activity, should be thoroughly investigated and put on trial,” Rogachyov said.

White Helmets are just like the firemen in “Fahrenheit 451″… Except they don’t burn books, they make fake-news, just before letting down their white helmet for tactical gear and assault riffle…

I’m an American citizen of EU decent and I don’t approve of our behavior in the ME but we can make up for our mis-deeds there by creating an autonomous Kurdish state in NE Syria. I would hope that will be the beginning of a Kurdish Republic (incl. also the Kurds of Iran,Iraq and Turkey). They deserve a country of their own.

As long as Russia can set up a Autonomous American Indian state in America without permission from the US government.

What do you say? Your repeating talking points of the psychological operations. You have no original thoughts.

Certainly but the infamous White Helmets, which are a joint MI6/Qatar operation, are not linked with anything Kurd…
