Russia Wants Syrian Boy From White Helmets' Footage to Address OPCW
Earlier, Diab told the Russian TV channel Rossiya 24 about the details of the White Helmets' footage. The boy said that he was in a basement in Douma with his mother when someone shouted to go to the hospital. When they came, somebody grabbed him, poured water on him and put him on a bed with other people in order to shoot a video.
The situation in Syria significantly escalated amid reports about the alleged April 7 chemical attack in the city of Douma, after which the EU and the US rushed to blame the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad, with Damascus refuting the allegations. Moscow views it as a false flag provocation carried out to justify a strike on the country.
