MOSCOW, Russia – Russia has fully destroyed all chemical weapon stocks without any exception, Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov said on Wednesday.

“We have destroyed all the chemical weapons with no exception, which were created back at the time of the Soviet Union,” Manturov said in response to a question from reporters about whether Russia had the Novichok nerve agent in stock.

“”And this work was completed in November 2017 by the official ceremony of destroying the last shell,” he continued.
