The Western countries blamed the Syrian government for the attacks, and went forward with airstrikes in spite of a lack of publicly presented evidence.
"On April 24 ... the airspace monitoring facilities at Russia's Hmeimim airbase detected a group of small-size unidentified airborne targets approaching the base", the spokesperson said in a statement.
According to Shulgin, the video of the aftermath of the attack is fake.
The event is part of an ongoing clash of narratives between the West and Syria and its key ally Russian Federation about the April 7 attack.
The town of Douma was under rebel control and facing a government air and ground assault when the suspected attack took place.
The spokesperson reiterated that if Russia's claims were true, "we certainly would have seen proof by now, consistent with the Russian propaganda machine's normal modus operandi". The system has been supplied by Moscow to Tehran, and deployed by the Russian army in Syria, alongside its more advanced iteration, the S-400.
Speculation has mounted in recent weeks that Russian Federation could deploy the advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missile defense system to Syria, following a US-led airstrike on Syrian military sites and another earlier strike on an Iranian-operated air base in Syria widely attributed to Israel.
The minister referred to comments by top Russian officials to the Kommersant newspaper that Russia is expected to provide Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft defence systems.

Israel has not taken sides in the Syrian civil war, but its air force has carried out dozens of air strikes during the fighting, majority believed to have been aimed at suspected arms shipments to Hizballah militias allied with Iran.
Would it be better for Israel to stop bombing Syria given that S-300 systems are purely defensive weapons? "We are not going to support the building of infrastructure that will benefit Hezbollah, Iran's Revolutionary Guards, or foreign militias recruited and paid by the Iranian regime", the chairman continued.
Immediately following the reports that Syria would be getting S-300s, Israel threatened to destroy the S- systems if Israeli warplanes are targeted.
"Based on it, a number of changes have already been introduced into the air defense system of the country, which will further increase its reliability", Rudskoy said.
"That doesn't mean we should stop", he said. "When the Syrian systems acted against us, we destroyed them".
