Russia claims to have "proof" Britain was behind the alleged chemical attack
Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said the military had "proof that testifies to the direct participation of Britain in the organising of this provocation in eastern Ghouta".
He said the UK told the White Helmets, the first responders in rebel-held areas, to fake the suspected chemical attack in Douma.
London put "powerful pressure" on the civil defence organisation, he said.
He claimed the attack was staged on 7 April to coincide with military action by Syrian government forces after the rebel group Jaish al Islam, which long controlled eastern Ghouta, carried out shelling of Damascus from 3-6 April.

I think the Kremlin likes sowing seeds of confusion and conspiracy to make themselves appear innocent in all this, and to cause chaos and mistrust amongst Nato and other allies.

I'm on the fence with regard to the latest gas attack and as I've detailed in other posts, there's no path forward for US involvement in Syria.
That said, the Putin regime has zero credibility and a well known recent history of faking evidence (and getting caught doing it).
2014 - Russian pictures of MH17 being shot by Ukrainian jet 'fake'
2015 - Satellite images show clearly that Russia faked its MH17 report
2017 - Russia uses video game pictures to claim US helped Isil
Then there was this wtf from Putin himself:
Video That Putin Shows Oliver Stone of Russians Fighting ISIS is Totally Fake

But...most of MSM is propaganda. Who's propaganda is the only question. Yes, Russia is also spreading propaganda just as we are over there and around the world. I would not want to be living in Russia under Putin, thankfully I live here where we have more rights of freedom of speech. It does not mean I believe everything I am told though, we have freedom of belief here too.
