    Well, one “ulcer” has become smaller, but how much more work to restore and restore will be required?

      A very long time this gimmick for the destruction of chem. weapons. Several times they tried to curtail the project, but thank God this did not happen and the planned destruction was realized to the end. As a resident of the Bryansk region, this program was far from indifferent to me.

        We had this “ulcer” IN VIOLATION of international agreements, as well as with all the others. Moreover, now it is more dangerous for us, since the shelf life has already been exceeded and it was still necessary to destroy it.

      This is evolution, some weapons are a thing of the past, new ones take their place. At the head is ensuring national defense and security.

    Have you already made a new chemical weapon? And it will turn out like with missiles at EBN and a hunchback.

      The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) is an arms control agreement that prohibits the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. Its full name is the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and Their Destruction.

      The main obligation of the convention, imposed on its participants, is a ban on the production and use of chemical weapons, as well as the destruction of all its stocks. All destruction activities are controlled by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). By July 2010, about 60% of all chemical weapons stockpiles were destroyed [5]. The Convention also provides for the systematic monitoring of chemical production facilities, as well as investigations into allegations of the production and use of chemical weapons.
      By August 2010, 188 states are parties to this convention and 2 more countries have signed, but have not yet ratified it

      Russia has ratified.

        I absolutely think of the drum, who and what has ratified there, you my naive friend seriously think that the Americans and the like exceptional will abide by what they once signed. Or you didn’t learn the lessons of the 90s, when “world-friendship-chewing gum”, and our new friends-partners almost let us in, we still can’t come to our senses. When they come to burn my house and kill me and my relatives, I absolutely do not give a damn how to answer them, with an ax or dichlorvos or a nuclear bomb, but I would like with dignity - high-tech, and not be a Papuan on someone else's safari. Americans, right around the perimeter of Russia, are building and already operating chemical and biological laboratories - what do you think this is?
        Old XO certainly need to be deactivated, because it will pose a threat to us, and a new one, even more deadly, must be developed and put into service - secretly, without any poster, or there will be nothing to surprise the adversary. And since we are not going to attack anyone, then our XO will not harm anyone. There have already been a million agreements of all kinds with us, and where are these agreements? I remember from history, one such agreement cost us 20 +++++ millions of our lives.

    We then destroy, we do not spare money. Spratniki why they are silent, because they have flooded dofig chemical weapons in the water area. Let them ask for exceptional, not weapons to buy. If the request is voiced, the EU and the US will allocate money and equipment as well.

        What do you mean why. Their allies live there. If it flows, the fish will die and the coastal part will be infected. What will they feed the brave Amerov soldiers. Yes, they also need to be fed. The EU has nothing to feed the swarthy, and also these will howl, ask for a tit.

      here .. really is our main partners? if memory serves, then Iraq and the Kurds in 1991 they poisoned the VX with a bang. I am not against the destruction of chemical weapons when there is nuclear, but I would like for the overseas to do the same.

      probably not, why is it. if there is a nuclear
      and not at all effective (in the size of a nuclear war), but an excuse to get a nuclear response

        Well, the entry of a chemical warhead with soman or V-gases into New York for example, can cause mortality comparable to a nuclear charge.
        And biological weapons are more likely a third-strike weapon after nuclear and chemical ones, since the infrastructure will be destroyed, therefore it will be difficult to find a medicine and mortality will increase.
        Logically, the order of use and purpose of the weapon would be as follows.
        1. Nuclear weapons strike mines of ballistic missiles, military bases, airfields with strategic bombers, naval bases, large factories for the production of weapons, storage bases, large cities and megacities.
        2. Chemical weapons strike in medium-sized cities with a population of less than 500 thousand people, urban-type villages, villages, large livestock farms.
        3. Biological weapons to strike large agricultural fields in order to infect cultivated areas, and thus cause infection.

          somehow you painted everything too apocalyptically
          in fact, everything was different - chemical weapons, although it worked in the First World War, were local but they had not yet invented gas masks
          after that they didn’t even use it, during the Second World War I didn’t even hear about it
          and biological weapons - also locally, more for sabotage, in a big nuclear war it will be nothing - nothing affecting anything
          the Japanese tried to use weapons in WWII, but somehow without much success

    In addition to chemical weapons, there are so many other species that have appeared and are being put into practice that there is more harm than good from it. In modern warfare, the use of chem. weapons are extremely impractical. It can be used only by frostbitten bearded ones, and those who have "Heroes of fat!"

    No, of course they did the right thing to eliminate this crap. Maybe now the gas masks will be canceled and the fighter will breathe easier? wink But this is a joke. And how many infections still exist in the world ... who knows for sure? I recall the 90s. Remember the famous blackout of enterprises? So then the Kurchatov Institute was turned off. Clever Velikhov then also spoke on the radio and warned that he had only 2 weeks to fuel mobile electric stations. After that, it can explode and half of Moscow will not. Like reactors will become a vigorous bomb. True, he promised to warn the population in 3 days. And after 2 days, the director of another "modest" institute spoke and said about the same thing, only half of Moscow would not be, and half of the world would not. For he has various small viruses, bacteria, and other invisible trifles in his fridges that can break loose. And you can’t forbid all this.

    The last 20 years, binary poisonous substances have been popular. Separate production of their components is legal and until they mix chemical weapons with each other, it will not work. And highly toxic toxic substances with expired storage must be disposed of without question.
