Russia must provide “full disclosure” to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about its production, supply and use of the poison gas novichok.
This is necessary now that it has been established that opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been poisoned with that or a similar nerve agent, according to NATO.
In addition to accessing Russia’s novichok program, Russia must also cooperate fully with the OPCW to investigate the poisoning of Navalny, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said.
The assassination attempt on President Vladimir Putin’s opponent has raised “serious” questions that Russia must answer.
Russia insists that Navalny is something else wrong, even though its refuge Germany has determined that he is undeniably the victim of poisoning.
After consultation with the members of the alliance, Stoltenberg did not want to speculate about possible punitive measures against Russia.
After an attack with Novichok in Salisbury, England in 2018, NATO dismissed seven members of the Russian representation.
