Russia lost its seat on the Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

The Russian Federation has lost its representation on the Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). This happened as a result of a vote at the 28th Conference of States Parties to the OPCW. Russia received 65 votes, one vote short of the required minimum of 66 votes to retain a seat on the council.

The Executive Council from the Eastern European Group included representatives of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine. The vote reflects changes in international relations and could affect Russia's position in global diplomacy on chemical weapons control.

The OPCW Executive Council is one of the key bodies of the organization, playing an important role in making decisions regarding the implementation of the Chemical Convention and activities to prevent the proliferation of chemical weapons. Losing a seat on this council could reduce Russia's influence on processes related to international chemical weapons control.
