BRYANSK, October 8. /TASS/. Russia’s largest chemical weapons stockpiles have been completely destroyed at a special enterprise in the town of Pochep, in the central Russia’s Bryansk region.
A spokesperson for the government’s Federal Agency for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons said the last air bomb was destroyed at the enterprise on September 26.
Since the plant’s launch in 2010, more than 67,000 chemical aircraft ammunition have been neutralized at the Pochep facility that contained almost 7,500 tons of toxic agents as sarin, soman and the VX type substances.
An effort on the decontamination of the plant’s equipment and sanitation of land where the ammunition was stored is due to begin soon. A decision will be taken later on the conversion of the facility for civilian production.
By October this year, a total of 92% of the chemical agents of warfare have been destroyed in Russia. In 2016, the elimination of chemical weapons will continue at the last facility in Kizner in Russia’s Udmurt republic.
