Soil Analysis in Douma Didn't Reveal Any Poisonous Substances – Russian MoD

A militant workshop for the production of explosive items with poisonous substances had been found in the Syrian town of Hazram at the beginning of March, according to General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.
“I want to emphasize that on April 9, a day after the alleged chemical attack in the Douma, Russian military specialists in the field of radiation, chemical and biological defense, as well as military doctors arrived directly to the site of the alleged incident,” Deputy Commandant of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff Viktor Poznihir said.
He noted that the experts “took soil samples, collected fragments from the so-called place of the alleged chemical weapons attack,” stressing that their expertise “showed the absence of nerve agents and chlorine-containing poisonous substances.”
“As a result of the examination of the territory, the visit to the medical facility shown on the set of the White Helmets, the interview of the medical staff and the patients, neither facts of the use of poisonous substances nor injured among the inhabitants of this city were detected,” he stressed.
