Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs condemns the chemical attack in Syria

Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin stated on Twitter that Russia would be potentially accountable for another crime against humanity as he referred to the Syrian Army’s chemical weapons attack on the city of Douma on April 7.

"If the information against the chemical attack in Syria is confirmed, it is another crime against humanity. Both criminals themselves and their supporters must be held accountable for this.  Another United Nations Security Council resolution vetoed by Russia regarding chemical weapons in Syria will become the same as the veto concerning [the downed Malaysian passenger flight] MH17,” the statements says.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stated that reports concerning the use of chlorine-filled bombs by the Syrian army against militants in Douma were untrue, Interfax reports. "We strongly refute this information,” the head of the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation, Yuriy Yevtushenko stated.
