Ukraine expressed solidarity with the USA, Britain and France and supports the allies’ response to the chemical weapon use in Douma (Syria), which lead to numerous victims among civilians, as the press-office of the Foreign Ministry reported.
“Kremlin’s support of Damascus’s crimes cannot be left without attention, as the Kremlin’s regime with its actions, including in the UN Security Council, consistently makes it impossible to solve the conflict in Syria in accordance with the UN Charter,” the statement says.
The representative of the Ministry stressed that Ukraine confirms its opinion that it is a blatant violation of the international law to use a chemical weapon anywhere, under any circumstances and by anyone. The individuals involved in such actions should be brought to responsibility.
On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place. As a result of this attack at least 70 people died. The Syrian government and Russia called this information untrue, while the US and allies have blamed Bashar al-Assad for the attack.
Later U.S. President Donald Trump announced about a coming missile attack in Syria and urged Russia to be prepared. Also, the British troops prepare for the operation.
In its turn, Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed that the missiles should aim the ‘terrorists’. The General Staff of Russia recommended the US and its allies to restore Syrian Raqqa instead of threats.
Also, on April 12, President Trump specified when the US will attack Syria.
Britain’s and France’s armies started preparing for the military response. As at April 13, Germany and Italy refused to participate in the possible military operation in Syria.
