Presidential plenipotentiary: in the Russian Federation chemical weapons will be completely destroyed by the end of September

52
Russia will be able to complete the destruction of all stocks of chemical weapons before the end of this month, reports RIA News the message of the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Volga Federal District, Chairman of the State Commission on Chemical Disarmament, Mikhail Babich.



Chemical destruction program weapons on the instructions of the head of state will be completed ahead of schedule, despite the fact that our international commitments expire on December 31 2018 ... In the Russian Federation, we will complete it ahead of schedule, I think that by the end of this month. But the exact date of completion will be determined by the head of state, and literally in the coming days you will know about it,
said Babich.

He noted that Vladimir Putin set the task to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Because, on the one hand, weapons have a high degree of danger ... Secondly, we will demonstrate to the whole world that Russia does not just fulfill its international obligations, but understands very well that disarmament is an example for many of our other colleagues in foreign countries. I remind you that our American partners, having on 13 thousand tons less (chemical weapons), will complete this program only in 2023 year,
said the plenipotentiary.

In June, the Federal Directorate for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons reported that Russia had destroyed 98,9% of chemical weapons stocks and that the last KNOMER bombardment of ammunition would be disposed of by the end of 2017.

      What’s cooler. Steeper only nuclear weapons) and biology, but we, as it were, are not developing it either. I think that in the war on destruction, chemistry and biology still lose nuclear weapons so the bet is made, gentlemen)

        As for chemistry, you are right, but as for biological weapons .... This rubbish can be much more slaughter and no more noticeable. And I suspect both they and we are working in this area. It was in vain that they announced in the media the collection of genetic material of Russians (if not a duck of course).

      But it has lost its meaning. It’s not effective against the army, but fighting with the civilian population — you can get into war criminals. Storage and maintenance are expensive. Yes, God forbid, something will happen or be stolen. It’s calmer without him. Anti-personnel mines are also prohibited, but no one destroys them and does not remove them from weapons.

      NATO countries are arming themselves, the number of pro systems at the border is growing, consider we no longer have nuclear weapons.
      Now we’ll destroy chemical weapons of armaments, and even ahead of schedule, what a great fellow!

      Our country has never been able to withstand soft power, it eliminated science and technology through patent law, and through calls for peace, weapons are destroyed!

      Our ancient heptyl is cooler than military agents. And the warranty periods for chemical chemical tanks have basically expired long ago, and storing it in special warehouses is expensive and dangerous, and even more so sending them to untrained troops. It is more dangerous for their own than for strangers - it’s the same weapon for breaking through the lines of defense of the UR, actually, and not for mass destruction of the population, as the Americans used it. Nobody is building a fortune. If we have AO of point accuracy, then why do we also need indiscriminate chemical weapons?

          Why take him so far?
          Israel has a stockpile of its own chemical weapons. The development of chemical weapons in Israel began in the mid-60s.

          In 1990, the country's defense minister claimed that Israel possessed chemical weapons and used them in the event of an attack, such as from Iraq.

          Israel is currently able to produce all types of toxic substances. For this, the country has highly developed chemical and petrochemical industries, qualified specialists, as well as stocks of raw materials.

      “All Syria’s chemical weapons are officially destroyed,” notes the Organization.
      According to the director general of the OPCW, Ahmet Uzyumdzhu, "this process completes the important chapter of the Syrian chemical weapons program."

        Here I agree with you, but to update the stock of ammunition and abandon them completely, these are two different things. Perhaps they are not needed in such quantities, but they need to be in place so that NATO does not boldly use chemical weapons against the Russian Federation, knowing about a possible answer.

          There are more radical remedies. NF, in the totality of the damaging factors, is much superior to chemistry.
          In addition, all modern armies are provided with protective equipment, which further reduces the effectiveness of the use of BOV.

            The army, yes, but not the civilian population and I have no confidence that in response to a chemical attack against the Russian Federation, the GDP will give the order to use nuclear weapons ... Moscow preferred to not notice the shelling of the Bandera people in the Rostov Region, even when it led to casualties among the Russian population.

              I can’t imagine this scenario at all, even if conventional missiles with conventional warhead warheads fly, then nuclear ones fly back, because they don’t say what is inside.

              It is not known whose shells actually flew there, then the APU and the National Battalions were pressed to the border and it could well have been flights from the militia.
              Shelling was not in fact, so shells sometimes flied and that’s all.

                There were several shellings in both the Rostov Region and the Crimea, next to which there was no Donetsk militia at all, and there was no point in Donetsk shooting at the territory of the Russian Federation, with which they, even the locals, were carrying stew and cartridges .... But I can imagine striking at the territory of the Russian Federation with cruise missiles, or Tochka missiles, both by Bandera and by the Americans ... Clinton is generally frostbitten, and Trump, it turned out, is no better ... Poland also bought American long-range short-range missiles, which can carry chemical and nuclear warheads.

                        No, Ukraine attacked Russia! The DPR can’t physically fire at the Crimea, this is the work of Ukraine, and there’s no point in firing at the Rostov Oblast. It was Tymoshenko who screamed that ,, Russia needs to be killed with nuclear weapons, '' and here the Kiev gangs are shooting at the territory of the Russian Federation.

    This should have been done 70 years ago. Already 2MB showed that XO is not effective and it was almost never used. With the advent of gas masks and the loss of the factor of surprise, from a military point of view, this is simply a useless ballast. They only poison the pit to keep the infrastructure in their own territory. Purely dictatorial garbage.

      No, it wasn’t.
      Progress looked like this:
      2003 - 1% destroyed.
      2007 year - 20%
      2009 year - 45%
      2015 year - 92%
      stockpiles of toxic substances were eliminated at four more sites: Leonidovka in the Penza region, Maradykovsky in the Kirov region, Pochep in the Bryansk region and Shchuchye in the Kurgan region.

      Work at the Gorny facility (Saratov Region) was completed in 2005, at the Kambarka facility (Udmurtia) in 2009. Thus, to date, of the seven facilities in Russia there is only one active - Kizner in Udmurtia.

      About 900 tons of OM were left at the last facility, now there should already be less than 400.

      Do not worry - for sure there are still some kind of underdeveloped ones in the company. The rest, well, technologically developed with the corresponding high-tech industry, switched to binary components. Almost absolutely safe when stored separately for the owners. What they actually did in the USSR, but they delayed the disposal of the old one.

    It makes no sense to shell the Rostov Region of the DPR.

    Clear business. However, firing at Ukrainian units pressed against the Russian border was worthwhile. The skills of the gunners, at that time, were low, plus ammunition with expired storage periods. Shells could easily fly into Russian territory.
    VSUshniki not for nothing that in the same Rostov region they gave in to pearl - they were crushed on the other hand.
    I do not argue that Ukrainians could have arranged provocations as well, but in this case both options are equally probable.

    This weapon was banned by all countries for use after the First World War. Neither Hitler in his last hours nor Stalin when the Germans were near Moscow dared to violate this ban.
    In 90, Russia signed an agreement banning the production of chemical agents. Showed plants for the production of OM. The Russian ruins and the American are all in place neatly packed for conservation. But the previously created is preserved. Zarin is a very unstable compound obtained from mixing two substances immediately before loading on an airplane or more often in flight before discharge.
