Moscow Doubts Credibility of US Accusations about Crematorium in Syria

MOSCOW – Russia considered the latest United States accusations against the Syrian government about the alleged existence of a crematorium in a prison in Syria to be unfounded, a Russia foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Thursday.

On Monday, the US assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, Stuart Jones, denounced the alleged crematorium in Sednaya prison, north of Damascus, used to burn the bodies of executed prisoners.

“The document contains a well-known, far from original, set of stereotypical allegations,” Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news conference.

Zakharova added that the accusations against Damascus of numerous violations of the norms of international law are “unproven again.”

In this regard, she stressed that the US attack on the Shayrat Syrian air base on April 7 did violate international law.

The Russian spokeswoman urged Washington to present convincing evidence to back up its statements, or otherwise warned they will be considered as elements of an information war against Syria.

In its report, the US State Department also accused Damascus of using explosive barrels and chemical weapons against the civilian population.
