MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement about possible provocations with chemical weapons in Syria concern Damascus’ neighborhood of Eastern Ghouta, a Kremlin source told TASS on Tuesday.

"We have information from different sources that these provocations - I cannot call them otherwise - are being prepared in other regions of Syria, including in the southern suburbs of Damascus where there are plans to throw some substance and accuse the official Syrian authorities," Putin said.
