15 dubna 2018, 11:55

Ukraine expresses solidarity with the United States, Great Britain and France and supports actions of the allies in response to the use of chemical weapons by Damascus in the Syrian city of Douma, which has led to numerous civilian casualties.

It is worth to note the purposeful support of the crimes of Damascus by the Kremlin regime which by its actions, including in the UN Security Council, consistently makes it impossible to resolve the conflict in Syria according to the UN Charter.

Ukraine reiterates its firm stance that the use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere and under any circumstances is a flagrant violation of international law and those responsible for such actions must be held accountable.
