Russia is entering the final stage of the destruction of chemical weapons

Valery Kapashin, Head of the Federal Directorate for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons, in an interview Interfax reported that Russia destroyed about 80% of its chemical weapons. Today, about 8 thousand tons of chemical weapons remain in stock.

Russia is entering the final stage of the destruction of chemical weapons

To date, chemical munitions of complex construction are not destroyed. Their main feature is that the development of such ammunition used the so-called anti-handling technology. For their disposal, an additional special line is required, which is planned to be put into operation within the framework of the chemical disarmament program. The lines that are already actively used for the disposal of chemical weapons, created exclusively by Russian technology.

Along with the destruction of chemical weapons located in Russian special warehouses, Russia takes an active part in the destruction of Syrian weapons of this type. To date, the Syrian media have reported the destruction of up to 92% of chemical weapons, including with the help of Russian specialists.

According to Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, the remaining 8% of Syrian chemical weapons have not yet been removed from the country due to the tense situation around the facilities in which it is located.

      Here I am about the same. No need to rush. Or cushion the remainder.
      According to the plan, the United States was to destroy its chemical weapons by April 2012. Russia - until December 2015 of the year.

        That is exactly what we disagree with the States. Our destruction is perceived as recycling. And the Americans simply transport and stack somewhere, this is their destruction. So with EBN it was. It was, however, about nuclear weapons.

          XO is exactly what is being destroyed. And about some kind of warehousing more legend than reality. It was about the media that the Americans were taking apart "for storage." We did the same, but some of the missiles were actually detonated.

      I think you should not worry.
      chemical weapons alone are quite simple, and given the significant progress in reducing the minimum doses
      5% of the then amount of arsenals is enough for the eyes of the whole world.
      and there are viruses

    Why not cover the disarmament of chemical weapons in SyShyA?
    You can no longer comply with the contract due to sanctions.
    Quit START-3

      But it’s not necessary, by the way, it’s not far from me, and it’s a couple of tens of kilometers (and it’s a little over 30 to the plant), the largest chemical weapons warehouse in Russia, Pochep’s, is located, but you don’t know that something would happen there.
      Especially with the use of modern technology to mix this is not a problem.

    why are we in a hurry, if only long-term storage is dangerous then yes!

    Colleagues, it is just right to recall the anecdote about the lieutenant, who, during the disarmament, forgot the Topol division in the taiga ... Neither we nor the States will destroy the CW until the end ... this is an axiom! As long as there is the slightest likelihood of an armed conflict, neither side will fully disarm. Putin is not Marked, he will not move.

    Sometimes you think about how many different rubbish they came up with to kill people, they tried to invent, whole industries, institutions worked, now we are trying to destroy what was done, how much effort, money, human knowledge was wasted, but what a disorderly creature a person is.

    In general, any ammunition has a shelf life, the old in any case must be destroyed. I don’t know anything about the production of new ones, but the latest designs are so effective that the development of new ones hardly makes sense, and we know how to make them. In addition, many new weapons of wave and impulse action are being developed that can replace chemical weapons.

    In response to this kind gesture by the United States, it would be nice to curtail the activities of the Pentagon's bacteriological laboratory in Georgia and Odessa.

    Destroy this muck clearly. It’s one thing when conventional arsenals plow, there the infrastructure mostly suffers. And if at least a couple of products from the arsenal of chemical weapons smell, here we can talk about the destruction of the population, right up to the elimination of settlements. So nafig-nafig ... Chemical weapons degrade over time, changing their composition. let the Americans hide, they do not mind.
