Russia warns US against ‘reckless steps’ in Syria amid reports of false flag plan

Damascus skies erupt with surface to air missile fire as the US launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the Syrian capital in April.

Moscow has warned Washington against making any “reckless” moves in Syria after the Russian Defense Ministry said the US, Britain and France are preparing to conduct a fresh aerial assault against Syria under the pretext of the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Damascus government.

“We warn the Americans and their allies against taking new reckless steps in Syria,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Saturday.

“We are hearing ultimatums from Washington … and it does not affect our determination to continue our policy for the total elimination of terrorist epicenters in Syria and the return of this country to a normal life,” RIA news agency quoted Ryabkov as saying.

Earlier in the day, the ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov had said that a group of militants, who were trained by a private British military company to work with poisonous materials, had already arrived in Syria’s northwestern Idlib Province.

“To carry out the alleged ‘chemical attack’ in the city of Jisr al-Shughur in the province of Idlib, militants from the Tahrir al-Sham group had delivered 8 tankers with chlorine… to a village a few kilometers from Jisr al-Shughur,” Konashenkov said.

The Russian general further warned that a possible militant gas attack on Syria would be followed by a Western strike against the Arab country.

“This provocation with the active participation of the British special services will serve as another pretext for the US, UK and France to conduct a missile strike on the Syrian government and economic facilities,” he said.

The official further noted that the American destroyer USS The Sullivans armed with 56 cruise missiles had also arrived in the Persian Gulf and a US В-1В bomber carrying 24 air-to-surface AGM-158 JASSM cruise missiles had been deployed at Al Udeid airbase in Qatar.

“Western countries’ actions in spite of their public statements are aimed at another sharp deterioration of the situation in the Middle East region and the disruption of the peace process on the territory of Syria.”


The warning comes as the Syrian army is now preparing for an operation to liberate Idlib Province, the last major militant stronghold.

Bolton’s warning 

On Saturday, Bloomberg reported that US National Security Adviser John Bolton had warned his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, that Washington was prepared to take strong military action against Syria if it used chemical weapons in Idlib.

Bolton issued the warning during his Thursday’s talks with Patrushev, the report quoted four people familiar with the discussions as saying.

On April 14, the US, Britain and France launched a coordinated missile attack against sites and research facilities near Damascus and Homs with the purported goal of paralyzing the Syrian government’s capability to produce chemicals.

The strike came one week after an alleged gas attack on the Damascus suburb town of Douma.

Both Damascus and Moscow accused the White Helmets volunteer group of having staged the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

Turkey pushing against Syria’s upcoming Idlib campaign

As countdown begins for the Idlib counter-terrorism campaign, Turkey tries to avert the push, claiming that it will lead to a humanitarian crisis.

Speaking at a press conference with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, in Moscow on Friday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the two countries could cooperate on separating Idlib “terrorists” from opposition groups.

“A military solution there (in Idlib) will cause catastrophe,” he said. “Not only for the Idlib region but for the future of Syria, it will cause catastrophe and the clashes may last a long time.”

Lavrov, for his part, acknowledged that the situation in Idlib is “complex” and called for the separation of militants from opposition outfits.

He also said that when Turkey, Iran and Russia held talks on Syria’s ceasefire zones, Moscow did not expect militants to be “using it as a human shield” from which they could attack the government.

  1. The American’s put up with this nonsense because the MS media refuses to inform them. That and the fact we are all slaves to our personal debt who can’t afford to miss a days work, let alone lose our job. Add to this that for the past 60 years we have been successfully brainwashed, family structure ruined, dumbed down, poisoned by our waters and foods to the point we no longer procreate at a natural rate, live in a police state, terrified of strangers, and are just waiting quietly for 5G to be rolled out to finish the job.

  2. BELLICOSE BLIGHTY GOES BERSERK

    Talk about flogging a dead horse – these British officer corps tykes (types!) apparently undergo all training courses with their heads in the sand and rear ends to the wind – and full of it, at Sandhurst – if former cadet James Le Mesurrier’s pedigree is anything to go by. Nothing else makes sense if this is the extent of their modern military ingenuity to stage yet another – yes, another! false flag gas attack in Syria under Le Messurier’s ‘White Helmets.’ It is time for Russia to saddle up and apply the coup de grace and with The Charge of the Light Brigade in mind, pummel them mercilessly under a devastating stampede of one-trick-ponies of the Russian State Circus. That should take care of the nonsense and allow the Russian troops back for tea by three from a samovar.

    (The only two British circuses – Circus Mondao and Peter Jolly’s Circus have 19 animals between them: six reindeer, four zebra, three camels, three raccoons, a fox, a macaw and a zebu. Missing from the list is James Le Mesurier, millionaire mercenary circus clown and English one-trick pony with a propensity for passing gas…Yes, he is that funny people have been known to barf and foam at the mouth. It is a show to die for…ask any carney barker!)

  3. Have Americans forgotten we could not have “won” WW2 without the Russian Army? We overcame Fascism only because the Russians lost 25 million people in WW2. We were allied against Fascism.
    Have the Jews forgotten that the Russians were the first ones to tell the world about the death camps?
    The United States needs to get it’s priorities straightened out, we need to be allied with the anti-fascists, not allies with Israeli Fascism.

    • I have never been able to figure out Putin where does he actually stand in the big scheme of things. A while back I wrote an article and this was the reply

      Putin has approached every single country in the world to ask them to declare holocaust denial a criminal offence, and he was partially successful in persuading several nations to adopt this law, and I believe he has since made a subsequent approach to all other nations to adopt this law, so quite obviously, Putin is absolutely a Jewish fanatic. He is held to have had a Jewish mother, and been heavily mentored by Jews in his earlier days, and we know that Jews destroy everyone but their own with great military zeal.

      Jews cannot be ‘fooled’ by clever political chicane ry, they know it all, there is nothing any politicians can say to any Jew to get round them, the Jewish policy beats all others, it is universal in application, that ALL Gentiles are to be enslaved and ultimately killed, then sent to hell, there is no getting round that, Jews ultimately destroy even all their allies, any fools who think that by getting in with the Jews they can have a piece of the action, a share in their power over the world, as that is not going to happen, we gentiles are all to be killed if theJews get their way, end of, there is to be no power share, no sharing of ‘well-being’ with the Jews, all this is most clearly stated in the Jewish ‘scriptures’ (terrorist manuals).
