Maria Zakharova, "Syrian Gas Attack is a Lie - "Stop Your Governments!" - Russia", Inessa S YouTube Channel (07 April 2017)
It's hard to imagine someone with the job title "Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation" speaking anything but propagandistic nonsense, but in the case of Maria Zakharova that is clearly not so. This is well worth a listen, and it's only about nine minutes.
"On April 7th, US warships delivered an illegal blow to a Syrian airbase in Homs. Their justification was the recent "chemical weapon" attack on behalf of the Syrian government in Idlib. The Kremlin condemned the strike as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, and a violation of international law. Meanwhile, at the UN, representatives of Western governments attempt to push through a resolution that is based on information taken out of thin air. It includes the removal of Assad, whether or not he was behind the attack.
It is noteworthy that the only real source of information on what took place are the videos made by the White Helmets, an infamous propaganda organisation as it pertains to the Syrian civil war. In this clip, Maria Zakharova calls on Western respresentatives/journalists to hear Russia, and what it has to say. The attack against the Syrian government, much like the Ghouta gas attack in 2013, which precipitated the Syrian civil war, is a giant facade for the military-industrial warhawks in the US to put their money where their mouth is."—Inessa S
