The Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted the inconsistency of statements by the Director General of the OPCW and the secretariat
The official representative of the Russian foreign ministry, Maria Zakharova, criticized the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons for strange, contradictory statements. She writes about this on her social media.

Zakharova reminded that last week the head of the OPCW, Ahmed Uzumju, was quoted twice, who said that the Skripals had been poisoned with the help of Novichok in a dosage of 50 to 100 grams. However, on Friday the Secretariat stated the exact opposite: the OPCW can not determine the amount of substance that was poisoned by ex-colonel GRU Sergey Skripal and his daughter Julia. Thus, the secretary disavowed the statements of his leader.

"My question is: who told the truth? General Director of the OPCW or the OPCW Secretariat? What the shame all this British fuss around Salisbury," Zakharova asks.

Let's remind, on 4 March this year in the British Salisbury were poisoned former Colonel GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. In the incident, Russia is blamed, stating that a poisonous substance was used under the name "Novichok".
