'The team has not yet deployed to Douma, ' he said at the OPCW's headquarters in The Hague.

Following weekend missile strikes on Syria by the US, France, and Britain, Russia traded accusations with Western nations on Monday, dismissing as "a blatant lie" accusations that Moscow was hindering the investigation in Douma.

The OPCW's fact-finding mission "will continue its deployment to the Syrian Arab Republic to establish facts around the allegations of chemical weapons use in Douma", the agency said in a statement.

Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the incoming missiles, according to the report, which urged citizens not to believe other media reports "intentionally or unintentionally" exaggerating the results of the attack.

The mission of experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to probe the use of chemical weapons in Syria's Douma stalled on Monday amid USA accusations against Russian Federation that it meddled with the site of the attack.

Douma is the largest town of the suburbs known as eastern Ghouta and its capture marks the biggest victory for President Bashar Assad's forces since the conflict began seven years ago.

The suspected attack in Douma, outside Damascus, in which the World Health Organization has said 43 people who died suffered "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals", occurred on April 7. I'm sure Russian Federation will be providing that irrefutable proof any day now, just as soon as they finish scrubbing the Douma site of any evidence and blocking inspectors from doing their jobs.

The United States, United Kingdom and France launched missile strikes on a number of targets in Syria at 4 a.m. local time on Saturday in retaliation for the so-purported the chemical use.

Deputy Russian foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov blamed Western air strikes carried out on Saturday for holding up the OPCW mission.

The targeted sites were largely empty and were all said to be facilities for chemical weapons storage or production.

The OPCW will determine whether chemical weapons were used, but will not assign blame.

A fact-finding mission by the UN's chemical weapons watchdog has arrived in Damascus.

Regime forces have since entered Douma and declared the entire Eastern Ghouta region around it fully retaken, ending a five-year siege and reclaiming an opposition bastion on the edge of the capital.

Medical student Marwan Jaber said no chemical weapons were used on April 7.
