Russia is outraged by the attempt to replace Russia on the OPCW council with Ukraine

Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Kirill Lysogorsky expressed concern that Ukraine took Russia's place on the executive council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). He called this decision, made with the support of NATO countries, a “blatant fact,” emphasizing the inadequacy of replacing a state with one of the largest chemical industries with Ukraine, where such an industry does not exist. Lysogorsky regarded these actions of the Western coalition as unacceptable “strange maneuvers.”

In the context of this situation, Lysogorsky also mentioned reports regarding Ukraine's intentions to use chemical agents against civilians in Melitopol, which, according to him, could become a mass murder. It was noted that the substances prepared for this are similar to the American chemical warfare agent BZ, which can only be synthesized in state military centers.

Lysogorsky recalled his speech at the 28th session of the Conference of States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention in The Hague, where he expressed concern about the possible use by the United States and its allies of psychotropic and narcotic substances that are not covered by the CWC, but have an active effect on the central nervous system. human system. At the same time, he emphasized that such actions may violate other international conventions, including those on the control of drugs and psychotropic substances.
