Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he has information about the preparation of another US missile strikes against Syria, to justify which Washington is allegedly going to initiate "fake" chemical attacks, Reuters reports.

According to the Russian President, Moscow will tolerate criticism of the West for its role in the Syrian conflict, but hopes that "the approaches will become softer."

"We have information that similar provocations are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus, where they plan to re-deploy certain substances and accuse the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons," the Russian President said, commenting on the possibility of new missile strikes against Syria.

Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that Russian forces and government troops of the Assad regime did not use chemical weapons in Syria, and the death of hundreds of civilians on April 4 occurred "as a result of air strike hitting chemical weapons production workshops" of the opposition forces.
