"Russia has given irrefutable evidence regarding the use of chemical weapons by the armed Syrian opposition to the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council according to a statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov."
According to Vitaly Churkin, the examination has unequivocally established that rebels had used the poisonous substance sarin on March 19 in Aleppo. Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov exposed the details of the results of the investigation.
"Our experts took samples, examined them on the spot in laboratories that are certified by the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons, and came to the conclusion that the shell and sarin that was in it were homemade. There are quite clear and unambiguous conclusions concerning the fact that characteristics of both the shell and this very sarin do not meet the standards used in industrial production.
