Russia has destroyed all weapons containing Lewisite

Russia has completed the destruction of all of its munitions containing lewisite, reported the head of the Federal Department for safe storage and destruction of chemical weapons, Colonel-General Valery Kapashin.

“The last Russian objective to destroy chemical weapons has today been completed with the destruction of munitions filled with the poison gas “lewisite,” said Kapashin

He recalled that the stocks of lewisite in the Russian Federation had been destroyed after those containing agents such as mustard gas, sarin and soman.

Kapashin noted that Russia only has a small batch of chemical munitions left to destroy, which are filled with VX. This will set the final point in the implementation of country’s obligations under OPCW agreement.
