White Helmets: Fraudsters Serving Western Spy Agencies

There are organizations that use Syria’s tragedy and human suffering for their own ends. They would go to any length in order to get into public spotlight. Quite often they make reports about the situation in the war-torn country, perpetuating the narrative about the «heroic deeds» of «moderate» opposition forces being pounded by Russian air raids. Western media present them as news received from trustworthy sources. That’s how public opinion is shaped.
Russian air strikes in Aleppo have killed some 1,207 civilians, 380 of them children, the Syrian White Helmets civil defense group has recently told United Nations war crimes investigators in a letter. A 39-page document outlining the accusations against Russia was submitted to the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria. It lists some 304 alleged attacks carried out primarily between July and December in the Aleppo region, in which the authors say there is a «high likelihood» of Russia’s responsibility. «Evidence clearly indicates that Russia has committed or been complicit in war crimes in Syria», the White Helmets letter to the UN inquiry said.
The question is who exactly are the White Helmets, the group able to get such precise data about what is happening on spot amid the battles raging in the country hit by devastating war?

Formally, the White Helmets (Syria Civil Defence-SCD) is a volunteer civil defense non-governmental organization was started by James Le Mesurier, a former military intelligence officer and private security consultant, in 2013, to operate in rebel-controlled Syria.
Its mission is to «to save the greatest number of lives in the shortest possible time and to minimize further injury to people and damage to property». The SCD claims to be a neutral and impartial humanitarian NGO, with no official affiliation to any political or military actor and a commitment to render services to any in need regardless of sect or political affiliation. It has grown to be an organization of over 2,850 volunteers operating from 114 local civil defense centers across 8 provincial directorates. It has been even nominated for the Nobel Prize Peace Award.
Initially, the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office was the largest single source of funding. Today the SCD gets money from the US, the UK, and Canadian, Danish, German and Japanese governments.
The USAID now appears to be the largest donor, having contributed at least $23 million from 2013 to March 2016. The fact that the funds have been transferred from State Department via USAID has been confirmed by Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner. The agency is widely known for being used as a cover for covert CIA activities.
According to an official report, the British government had provided £15 million of funding between 2012 and November 2015, increased to £32 million by October 2016. Actually, this is a very interesting paper. For instance, it mentions £5.3m given to some mysterious «media activists». It is logical to surmise that the money transferred to those who fabricate concocted stories to be picked up by media.
No wonder the organization have been publicly calling for Western intervention in Syria, particularly a no-fly zone, since their creation. He who pays the piper calls the tune.
It is easy to understand why Germany and France – the group’s donors – were so persistent while demanding an exit for the White Helmets in Aleppo.
If the White Helmets are really «neutral, impartial and humanitarian» and do «serve all the people of Syria», then why should they work only in areas controlled by the violent opposition and nowhere else? Why don’t they help Syrians who suffered from terrorists’ attacks in the government – controlled areas? The White Helmets claim to be unarmed but there are photos which show their members carrying arms and celebrating terrorist group’s military successes.
The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity stated that that a major objective of SCD was to produce anti-President Assad commentary, on social media and elsewhere.
The organization has been accused by critics of fabricating reports and rescues. On 15 December, Russia Today (RT) interviewed residents, who had just left eastern Aleppo after it fell to government forces, claiming SCD operatives had stolen jewelry and only helped when cameras were present. Vanessa Beeley has published her investigative stories to rip off the mask of the White Helmets, exposing it as a terrorist group. The journalist also exposed Mosab Obeidat, one of the SCD leaders, as an arms trader personally involved in the transactions to supply terrorists with arms and ammunition.
The White Helmets have posted fraudulent photos so as to blame the Syrian military for civilian casualties and intentional targeting of civilians. On November 30, Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs made a detailed statement about the fake pictures provided by the group for press. In late October, the Russian Defense Ministry said the group had produced fabricated photos to blame the Russian military for what it had not done.
The organization had spread around the stories about the horrors of Russian air strikes before Russia’s parliament even granted President Putin the authority to use the Air Space Forces in Syria.
The UN conference Against Propaganda and Regime Change, for Peace and National Sovereignty took place in early December. Eva Bartlett, an independent Canadian journalist, said no international organizations operated in Syria to make media use such dubious sources of information as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which is represented by only one person!
Hailed as heroic rescuers rushing to the aid of injured civilians in terrorists-controlled parts of Syria, the White Helmets are nothing else but an elaborate deception. The group is nothing else but a tool used by Western spy agencies to denigrate Russia and everyone who does not support the terrorists in their effort to overthrow the Syria’s legitimate government. The organization is a good example of the fact that all is fair in propaganda wars waged by the Western intelligence agencies against Russia.
