Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday that the latest attack by the US, the UK and France wouldn’t be left unanswered.

Speaking further, the Russian foreign minister said that all proofs of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, provided by some Western leaders, were taken from media and social networks.

“I can guarantee that Russia has not tampered with the site,” he told the BBC.

According to the head of the Russian foreign policy, all proofs of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, provided by some Western leaders, were taken from media and social networks.

“I can’t be impolite in regard to the heads of other countries, but you’re citing leaders of the US, the UK and France. Speaking frankly, all proofs that they’re referring to, based on media and social networks,” Lavrov said.

Lavrov’s statement comes amid claims by US ambassador to the OPCW Kenneth Ward, who said that Russia may have visited the site of the attack and tampered with it, Reuters reported.

Speaking further, the Russian foreign minister noted that the current relations between Russia and the West were worse than during the Cold War period.
