POCHEP, Bryansk region, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russia successfully carries out its obligations to eliminate chemical stockpiles, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said on Friday.
In compliance with the federal target program Russia eliminated over 30,000 tons of combat toxic substances and 76% of stockpiles.
Pochep is the sixth Russian facility where the country eliminates dangerous toxic substances. Over 17,500 tons have been stored here since the middle of the 20th century.
Currently, over 63% of toxic substances have been eliminated.
Representatives of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons visited the facility and praised its work. They noted that equipment made it possible to detect substances, which could cause damage to the soil, the water, flora and fauna.
The head of the OPCW inspection group said the elimination of chemical weapons at Pochep and other Russian facilities were safe. “I want to say specialists dealing with this work in Russia are high professionals. The group has no claims and remarks,” the Brazilian official said.
