    “That decision served as a starting point for future provocations by terrorists and extremist structures with the use of chemical weapons, they sought to discredit the official Damascus regime and to create a pretext for the use of military force against a sovereign state,” Deputy Russian U.N. Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov told the U.N. Security Council.
