Lavrov at UN Blasts British Role—False Flag Gas Attacks; Chamberlain at Munich, Nazis in Ukraine

Sept. 30, 2018 (EIRNS)—Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, representing Russia at the UN General Assembly on Sept. 28, referenced the British use of the White Helmets staging fake chemical weapon attacks in Syria, aimed at provoking war, and the revival of Nazism in Ukraine.

“Some of our Western colleagues who want to assign blame,” he said,

“are content to rely on assertions in the vein of the notorious ‘highly likely.’ We have already been through this. We remember well how many times false pretexts were used to justify interventions and wars, like in Yugoslavia in 1999, Iraq in 2003 and Libya in 2011.

“Now the same methods are being used against Syria. On April 14, it was subjected to missile strikes carried out under an absolutely falsified pretext, several hours before international inspectors were supposed to arrive at the site of the staged [gas attack] incident. Let the terrorists and their patrons be warned that any further provocations involving the use of chemical weapons would be unacceptable.

“This year is the 80th anniversary of the Munich conspiracy that crowned the criminal appeasement of the Third reich and serves as a sad example of the disastrous consequences that can result from national egotism, disregard for international law and seeking solutions at the expense of others.

“Regrettably, today in many countries the anti-Nazi vaccine has not only weakened, there is a growing campaign to rewrite history and whitewash war criminals and their accomplices.... The growth of radical nationalism and neo-Nazism in Ukraine, where criminals who fought under SS banners are glorified as heroes, is one of the main factors of the protracted domestic conflict in Ukraine.”
