On public lecture of Russian expert Maxim Grigoriev in Singapore

On October 31, Director of non-profit Foundation for the Study of Democracy Dr Maxim Grigoriev delivered a public lecture “Humanitarian Crisis in Syria: Truth & Disinformation” at NUS Middle East Institute.

Russian expert introduced the results of his research, conducted in Syria, on the activities of a pseudo-humanitarian organization “White helmets” and proved their close ties with terrorist and militant groups operating in Syria. He also refuted the fake news, widely spread by “White helmets”, on the alleged chemical attack in Douma in April 2018.

Singaporean and foreign scholars, students and diplomats attended the lecture, followed by a lively discussion.
