Paris, SANA- Director of the Fund for Research of Problems of Democracy Maxim Grigoryev said Wednesday that activities of the terrorist” White Helmets” group aim at disseminating false information about the situation in Syria.
Grigoryev was quoted by Russian TASS Agency as saying that “The White Helmets, who style themselves as a non-governmental organization, systematically release vast amounts of false information about Syria,”
He added “Thorough verification of all information allowed us to completely refute false information about chemical attacks, of which those disinformers regularly accuse the Syrian authorities.”
Grigoryev said that images that regularly pop up on social networking sites confirm that White Helmets “are sometimes directly engaged in hostilities alongside the armed groups in Syria.”
He noted that on certain occasions, the White Helmets used bodies of hostages executed by terrorists to make photo and video records of a staged chemical attack. “Some of them, including women and children, were deliberately executed for the purpose,” he said.
“You won’t find volunteers in its ranks, its workers get monthly fees for their services,” he went on, mentioning the ties of the organization’s co-founder James Le Mesurier with UK intelligence services.
He noted that to prepare its survey, the Fund for Research of Problems of Democracy interviewed a significant number of residents of regions where White Helmets are active
