Moscow Denies Use of Chemical Weapons Following Downing of Russian Helicopter

Kremlin spokesman says media "fabricated" claims Russia dropped chlorine gas on Saraqeb city in response to the shooting down of a helicopter by rebel forces

Moscow has refuted the claims by media outlets about the use of internationally-banned gas in Idleb countryside in response to the downing of a Russian helicopter by terrorists on Monday.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the media fabricated allegations that Saraqeb city was shelled on Monday night with barrels containing chlorine gas.

Terrorists downed a Russian helicopter in Idleb countryside as it was returning to Hmeimim airbase after delivering aid to Aleppo, killing the five Russian soldiers onboard.
