DAMASCUS. April 14 (Interfax) - Even in light of the airstrikes delivered by the U.S.-led coalition on Saturday, there are no obstacles for experts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to come to the town of Douma in Syria's Eastern Ghouta in order to investigate the alleged April 7 chemical attack there, Dmitry Sablin, coordinator of the group for liaison between the Russian State Duma and the Syrian parliament, told reporters on Saturday
