The Russian Foreign Ministry was outraged by the statement of Heiko Maas about the absurdity of the Russian Federation's claims against Germany and the OPCW
According to TASS, a commentary by the Russian Foreign Ministry spread on Saturday says that the statement by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas about “absurd reproaches” from Moscow to Germany and the OPCW in connection with the situation around blogger Alexei Navalny is outrageous and does not stand up to criticism.

“Such statements are outrageous and do not stand up to criticism. All we want is to receive legal, technical and organizational assistance both in the bilateral Russian-German format and at the OPCW site in the interests of conducting a comprehensive, objective and unbiased investigation of all the circumstances of the incident with Navalny”, – the Foreign Ministry noted.

“We are very interested in who is behind this anti-Russian provocation, staged from the very beginning. In response, we get aggressive rhetoric and outright manipulation of facts”.

The ministry noted that toxic substances of the “Novichok” group were used in the development of at least 20 Western countries, at the moment these countries have them in their 140 versions.

“As for the chemical warfare agent, called in the West “Novichok”, its structure and mass spectrum were first presented in 1998 in the spectral database of the American Institute of Standards”, – the commentary says. –

“Subsequently, on the basis of the mentioned compound, a whole family of toxic chemicals was formed that are not subject to the CWC. They worked with them along with the Americans in no less than 20 Western countries. So “Novichok” is a purely Western brand. It is synthesized and is available in these countries in about 140 variants. We do not have it”.
