Igor Konashenkov, representing the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation, noted that for the first time since the beginning of the Syrian crisis from the lips of American officials sounded a word about the terrorist use of chemical weapons against the population, which already knew everything.

He said that the Americans could spend missiles worth millions of dollars to better advantage, striking the terrorists who fired chirugie.
