Claims Russia preventing Syria gas attack probe ‘groundless’: Kremlin

Moscow (Russia) (AFP) – The Kremlin on Monday dismissed as “groundless” claims that Russia and Syria have not allowed a fact-finding mission from the world’s chemical weapons watchdog to enter Douma to probe an alleged gas attack.

“We consider such accusations against Russia to be groundless,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that Moscow was in favour of “an impartial investigation”.
