President Putin instructed Russian Government to come up with proposals for staged safe conversion of chemical weapons destruction facilities before December 2018. To prepare the proposals, Russian Ministry of Trade and Industry sends their officers to visit the chemical weapons destruction facilities and get a better first-hand knowledge of their condition.
Notably, all former chemical weapons destruction facilities are now undergoing the safing and liquidation process supervised by the Federal Directorate for Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons. The President has instructed to complement the federal program ‘Industries Promotion and Competitiveness Enhancement’ with the subprogram ‘2019-2024 Safing and Liquidation of Chemical Weapons Destruction Facilities’.
