Disposal of Syrian chemical weapons

Disposal of Syrian chemical weaponsThe official representative of the Russian Federation at the UN, Vitaly Churkin, announced that the first stage in the transfer of the Syrian chemical weapons in the hands of an international organization is scheduled to be completed by early November During this time, experts will have to familiarize themselves with how chemical weapons are stored in Syria, analyze documents from the Syrian government on the extent to which their production was or is being carried out. After that, the international forces will have to remove the chemical weapons in Syria and dispose of them.

It is reported that one of the places where such recycling may begin in the near future is the city of Pochep, located in the Bryansk region.
Here is a military enterprise, which uses the disposal of various types of chemical weapons in a fully closed mode. Emissions to the environment, according to high-ranking military officials, are completely excluded at this enterprise. At such a strategically important facility, everything is thought out to the smallest detail: security, technological process, use of computer technologies, protection of personnel of the enterprise.

The management of the company states that recycling can be carried out in Syria. To do this, the plant has special mobile installations that allow you to dispose of chemical weapons outside the facility. At the same time, the protection of such a process must be of high quality, otherwise the process of utilization may be used by extremists as new attempts to provoke an escalation in Syria.

Western experts argue that Syria’s chemical weapons can be sorted into individual batches, which under special control can be transferred to various specialized companies. In one of the interviews, foreign journalists asked the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Lavrov, who will finance the recycling process, since this process cannot be called cheap. Lavrov responded to this, as far as we know, there was a circle of states that wanted to finance the war in Syria, and therefore there will be those who want to sponsor peace in this long-suffering country.

So far, all the talk about solving the Syrian conflict by peaceful means is cutting the ground from under the feet of extremists. This should be used to strengthen diplomatic success, including using all the tools of the UN for this.

      Why milk? It would be nice to send some of these chemicals to it - even if it’s a useful thing they’ll do for fun.

    During this time, experts will need to familiarize themselves with how chemical weapons are stored in Syria, and analyze documents from the Syrian government on the extent to which their production has been or is being carried out. After that, international forces will have to remove the chemical weapons that Syria possesses and dispose of it.

    What can I say, a great gift for the state of Israel. Finally, the long-standing threat of the Syrian chemical weapons has been resolved. All that remains is to wait for what will happen next. Do you have to sacrifice so that there is no threat of creation?

      I don’t know, but it seems to me that Bashar is a sane person and patriot of his country. Therefore, in theory, nothing prevents him from taking part of the ammunition to Lebanon to Hezbollah, part to Iraq to the Kurds - ardent enemies of Turkey, and part to send for disposal for reporting. And in the event of another force majeure, pull this ace out of the sleeve ...

        think what you write? if part of the chemical weapons gets to the hezbollah, tear Syria to the English flag, even Russia will not help. Kurds hate Syria no more than Turkey.
        from the time of dad Assad, they periodically had problems there. The Kurds in Syria have their own plans, and they do not care about Assad and the rest.

    I hope our marines (under the auspices of the UN) will be involved in the protection of the mission and points of storage and destruction of the Khimki .. (and not only) Chemical depots (and especially UN representatives working there) should be reliably protected from attacks from both ground and air .. BDK unloaded ..

      Which of the responsible persons claimed that they would involve the Marines specifically for solving the tasks you specified? Motorized rifle units could not cope? Or airborne assault forces? If a decision is made to attract Russian military contingent to ensure protection and defense, the number of candidates for contract soldiers will noticeably decrease. It is one thing to defend one’s country, it’s quite another to eliminate the mistakes of another foreign ruler, like in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989.

    A double edged sword. The presence of chemical weapons in Syria psychologically restrained external aggression against it, and for Syria it was the last argument of defense. All this reminds a temporary respite for Syria. There are new challenges and reasons for external aggression.

    I wonder why Turkey, Israel, the United States and other GayRopeytsy are in no hurry to get rid of their chemical weapons ... everything is so "DEMOCRATIC" all the world is so sickening.

    It seems to me that the story with Syria will not end there and the "World Gendarme" uses other mechanisms and methods of influencing Syria.

    In short, it is unlikely that the Amers will release their prey from the strong "Democracy" so simply ...

    In fact, a double-edged sword ...... firstly, modern history does not know wars where chemical weapons were used. And even its use for protection is fraught with the assignment of the status of an outcast to the state ... no matter how bad and terrible the enemy attacks him. On the other hand, the complete absence of such weapons gives bonuses when attacking enemies .... and in the event of victory of the enemies, whatever their plans were insidious - the winners are not judged !!! (An exception in modern history is probably only Saddam who attacked Kuwait .... but this is another story) Israel is interesting for you! Plus, Israel solves another problem - Hezbollah! Israel has already turned against them all radical Islamic groups !! it’s a plus to bend Iran and disarm it ... and here you have controlled chaos ... when everyone around Israel fights among themselves and does not touch them .... essno heating up these conflicts.

    Well, then, DAM is campaigning for belt tightening, but did you suddenly find money to disarm Syria? So if the money is found, it is better to spend it on internal problems. High water in the Far East, for example. And let others pay for the disarmament of Syria.

      Of course, I understand everything that there is grief among people, but now you can’t throw all your strength into it, you need to look ahead, look at the future, so to speak. Now we won’t help Syria tomorrow, and perhaps the Far East will have to be saved from this scum ... I personally live in Transbaikalia and we have emergency heating every winter, the cities freeze and there is nothing silence on TV, who needs us?
