It makes no sense for Syria to use chemical gas. Further, Putin says if the U.S. has evidence that Syria did use chemical gas they should provide it to the United Nations and not keep it secret.

Putin claims that the US is preparing airstrikes on the Syrian capital - and will pin the blame on Bashar-al Assad's forces, reports The Mirror.
When asked, during a joint press conference with the Italian President Sergio Mattarella, whether he expected more US missile strikes on Syria, Putin said: "We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared ... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using (chemical weapons)."
