Moscow [Russia], Apr. 15 (ANI): Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claimed on Saturday that the toxin used to poison former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, was BZ toxin, as confirmed by a Swiss laboratory.
"Based on the results of the examination, traces of the toxic chemical BZ and its precursors, related to chemical weapons of the second category in accordance with the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, were found in the samples. BZ is a nerve agent temporarily disabling a person. The effect is achieved within 30-50 minutes and lasts up to four days," said Lavrov.
However, the most intriguing aspect of his claim remains to be the fact that the toxin has been in the possession of the US and the UK and has never been produced in Russia.
Lavrov further questioned the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is investigating the poisoning incident, for not taking into consideration the information about the BZ nerve agent, which, along with Novichok toxin, was not mentioned in the OPCW's final report.

so who did the Russians buy it from
Of course it isn't. Everybody knows that it's made by Banquet ...
Yuk! I wonder if anyone actually buys that stuff.
“...and has never been produced in Russia.”
Gee, and I was under the impression that the Soviets had great chemists.
BZ is produced exclusively in the West and is not known to be lethal, rather it incapacitates the victim by causing a type of paralysis for a number of hours or days depending on the strength of the dose.
This would be consistent with the symptoms exhibited by the Skripals, who originally were found slumped over on a park bench and were thought to have overdosed on fentanyl.
The Russians don’t know how to make it? Don’t beleive that.
A Russian guy gets caught with a stolen car. He gets acquitted at trial for the above logical argument. An American and a Brit used to own the car. And it wasnt made in Russia. So clearly hes innocent, right?
Putin’s boot lickers were proven wrong on the Syria threads, so now they are shifting gears lmao.
War is coming....WW 3.....nuclear armeggedon,,,,us navy ships will be sunk
Russia did nothing and didn’t lock their radars on either as they know their SAMs would be taken out of we chose to do it.
Hmmm.. Christopher Steele perhaps? Or maybe Obama’s crew.
Report from “South Asian” leading news agency; and
“Moscow [Russia], Apr. 15 (ANI): Russian Foreign Minister Sergei”>Sergei Lavrov claimed on Saturday that the toxin used to poison former double agent Sergei”>Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, was BZ toxin, as confirmed by a Swiss laboratory.”
So, if this is not Russian disinformation via “South Asia’s Leading Multimedia News Agency”, do they cite independent source FROM the Swiss Lab. No.
So it is essentially NOT about a Swiss Lab report, but a report out of Moscow via a news agency in India.
Its the same logic the British government used to condemn Russia when they claimed to have conclusive proof that ‘novichoks’ were used.
Turn about is fair play, and it looks like the incompetent Tories are being hoisted with their own petard.
Since there was no link in the article to any information on the Swiss report I went & did a search & came up with a Zerohedge article...
How could the British get something so wrong, when inflaming relations with the Russians can be so problematic? Are they TRYING to start the next World War?
I seriously wonder what is going on here. Who can be trusted?!
The Tory cucks here on FR come out in droves when there is talk of foreign intervention. When the feds are up their usual unconstitutional business domestically, the same cucks are silent or support the federales.
So Tory is a perfect label
The Skripal samples were sent to the Spiez laboratory in Switzerland by the OPCW as part of their investigation.
Spiez is a world renowned biochemical laboratory with impeccable credentials.
Those facts are not in dispute.
Yep, that’s enough to kill anyone.
I do too. It's almost like some globalist, third party, non-governmental Soros cabal is trying to start WW3.
This is my take fwiw...
Elements of the intelligence community in Great Britain perpetrated this fake attack on the Skripals, perhaps with their cooperation, to either gin up support for the Tory government which is failing miserably in the Brexit negotiations...or to topple it as seems likely now that the truth about the poisoning case is starting to leak out.
Meanwhile, Tony Blair and his competent new "centrist" party are waiting patiently to take the stage...
Don’t you think the Russians like their double agents dead instead of being incapacitated?
