Russia will send documents on Kiev’s possible provocation with the use of chemical weapons to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Russian permanent representative to the OPCW Aleksandr Shulgin said on March 9 on the Russia 24 TV channel.
The issue in question is the delivery by radical nationalist formations of about 80 tons of ammonia to the village of Zolochev near Kharkov, as reported by Major General Igor Konashenkov, a representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, on March 9. The Defense Ministry believes that the Banderites may stage a provocation using poisonous substances in order to accuse Russia of it.
“With regard to what we are now seeing in Ukraine, these plans, fears that there will be a chemical provocation. This is a very serious matter. We will send the documents to the technical secretariat today, or tomorrow morning latest, and ask that they be given the label of a Russian national document at the 99th session of the sub-council now taking place in The Hague, and we will distribute this information to all OPCW member states. We’ll see how the technical secretariat reacts in this situation,” Shulgin said.
The Russian permanent representative to the OPCW added that the Russian side also told the OPCW members about the provocation at the experimental nuclear reactor in Kharkiv, which may also be prepared by Kiev’s armed formations.
A special operation of the Russian Armed Forces on demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine began on February 24. The operation is aimed at depriving the Kiev regime of the opportunity to carry out further aggression against the people of the DPR and LPR.
