Media Disinfo: Russia Blamed for Hospital Bombings in Terrorist Held Territory, “Anonymous Journalists” and White Helmets Behind “Reports”

According to  Sputnik, the White Helmets were Behind “Reports” About Hospitals in Rebel-Held Syrian Territory, The White Helmets are collaborating with the so-called Moderate Terrorists: 

The so-called reports about “hospitals” and “schools” allegedly located in terrorist-held Syrian territory were created by the “White Helmets” group financed by London, the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashekov said Friday. “After three days it is absolutely clear for everyone that the allegedly bombed “hospitals” and “mobile clinics” in Aleppo exist only in US State Department spokesman John Kirby’s imagination. This “information blooper” will certainly remain a stain on Admiral Kirby’s biography,” Konashenkov said.

The defense ministry spokesman added that if all the “bombed” “hospitals” and “mobile clinics” were counted, that would mean there is nothing else in Syria apart from them. Recently, John Kirby blamed the Russian Aerospace Forces for allegedly “bombing hospitals” in Syria.

The Russian side has often requested international organizations to provide data on the presence of any medical facilities and schools in terrorist-held territories in Syria but the organizations said they did not have information on the existence of any of such facilities.

“We have repeatedly asked representatives of the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, other countries and international organizations to provide any information on the location of medical aid posts [‘hospitals’] or schools in Syrian areas controlled by terrorists,” Konashenkov said.

“The answer is always the same — no one has such information,” he said.

“There are only reports by the “White Helmets” or anonymous local “journalists” (“activists”),” the spokesman said ‘Don’t Become Victim of Perverse Info’

About Russia’s Operation in Syria Konashenkov added that the UK government officially allocated funds for the activity of “White Helmets”, and so-called “mass media” in Syria which were tasked with posting on Facebook and Twitter information about chemical attacks and reports provided by locals and “White Helmets”. Western countries accuse Russia of prolonging violence by giving air support to Syrian troops, while Moscow insists that ending the violence is only possible by cooperating with the legitimate government.
