MOSCOW, January 30. /TASS/. The transfer of 4 of Russia’s 5 chemical weapons destruction facilities to economic turnover is planned to be completed by the end of 2015. This issue is put on the agenda of Friday’s meeting of the State Commission on chemical disarmament.
"As of January 29, Russia has destroyed nearly 34,000 tons of toxic substances, or 84.8% of the declared stockpiles of chemical weapons," the press service of the Russian presidential envoy to the Volga Federal District, Chairman of the State Committee on chemical disarmament Mikhail Babich, said.
At the moment, 5 facilities are in operation — Maradykovsky (Kirov region), Leonidovka (Penza region), Shchuchye (Kurgan Region), Pochep (Bryansk region) and Kizner (Udmurtia). "At 4 facilities the destruction of dangerous stockpiles will be completed by the end of 2015, and only the Kizner facility will continue the process of chemical weapons destruction for the next 5 years," the press service said.
According to the press service, the phase of liquidation of the so-called complex ammunition, a very complicated engineering and technological process that requires specific safety measures, has begun.
