Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, said that none of the representatives of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had visited the Syrian town of Khan-Sheikhun, where according to Western media, allegedly on April 4, 2017, Syrian troops dropped air bombs stuffed with sarin or chlorine against non-combatants.

Recall that the day before the representatives of OPCW said that the received samples indicate the use of sarin in Khan-Sheikhun. However, who, where and how collected these samples in reality, remains unknown.
