"Destruction of chemical weapons stockpiles is planned to be completed in the settlement of Kizner, Udmurtia, at the end of September," said Babich, the chairman of the state commission for chemical disarmament.

"This is a year earlier than planned," he said, adding that more than two billion roubles from the budget have been saved.
