LPR urges global community to respond to Ukraine’s storing chemical weapons

The LPR People’s Militia urges the international community to respond to the possible use of chemical warfare agents by Kiev forces, stated the LPR People’s Militia spokesman Andrey Marochko on Tuesday.

Earlier, Marochko said Ukrainian forces stored chemical warfare agents in the Stanitsa Luganskaya district. Ukrainian representatives to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) said that the information was “incorrect as the Ukrainian leadership on January 13, 1993 signed the Chemical Weapons Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction.”

“I wish to draw your attention to mendacious statements by the Ukrainian party that it has no storage sites or arsenals of chemical weapons and components,” said Marochko.

“We are well aware that contrary to the Convention, there are chemical weapons in Ukrainian territory,” he said.

“I’m calling upon the international community to address the problem at hand as Ukraine might use this kind of weapon or its unsanctioned use might occur due to low morale and psychological state of Ukrainian servicemen,” said the spokesman.
