“Russia’s Sergey Lavrov claims Sergei Skripal was poisoned with Western BZ nerve agent
Russia has claimed the OPCW buried results from a Swiss lab probing the Skripal case that found a Western-developed nerve agent. It is the latest in a series of claims by Russia as it denies involvement in the poisoning.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Saturday claimed he had evidence from a Swiss lab that ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a Western-developed chemical agent.
His unsupported claims call into question the conclusions of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which found a Soviet-developed nerve agent was responsible for the attack in Salisbury, England, on March 4.
What Lavrov claimed
Lavrov said he received confidential results from Switzerland’s government-run Spiez Laboratory, which showed:
Samples from Salisbury contained BZ nerve agent and its precursor.
The sample also contained nerve agent A234 (a Novichok agent), but that its presence was strange, given the substance’s high volatility and the relatively long period between the poisoning and the sample-taking.
