Russia closed its trade office in Lithuania because the trade activities between countries are low, also Lithuania is participating in anti-Russian economic sanctions. Lithuanian authorities are keeping anti-Russian and Russophobic positions since the period of the Dalia Grybauskaite presidency.
Russia may consider withdrawing from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), if the organisation continues its policy of bias against certain countries.
The accusations levelled against the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons, Moscow and Damascus confirmed that there is no evidence of these accusations.
What happened with the former client, Sergey Skripal, and the activist, Alexei Navalny, also comes in the context of the bias of the organisation that did not base its statements on any facts or evidence.
The OPCW is an important organisation, although it is losing its credibility.
According to the OPCW's Director-General, the organisation has been targeted by a disinformation campaign when it granted new powers to assign blame for chemical attacks. 18 countries issued a joint statement, which called for an end to the unacceptable Russian defamation of the OPCW. Regarding the other allegations in the article:
The OPCW conducts probes into all allegations of chemical weapons' use in Syria, and its findings serve as the basis for publicly available reports and expert notes, and in its last report issued on October 1st concerning Saraqib, the OPCW was clear by stating that it has based its findings on “sample analysis, data examination and witness interviews”, and “materials that were made available by the interviewees, and hospital records… including information provided by the Syrian Arab Republic and others”.
Following the Salisbury attack, the United Kingdom notified the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), invited them to confirm the identity of the substance involved, and briefed members of the Security Council. The OPCW’s independent expert laboratories confirmed the UK’s identification of the Russian produced Novichok nerve agent, while emphasising that the OPCW team “worked independently and was not involved in the national investigation by the UK authorities", to ensure the integrity of the examinations and investigations.
These findings were later independently corroborated by labs in France and Sweden, and finally confirmed by the OPCW, which stated that [t]he biomarkers of the cholinesterase inhibitor found in Mr Navalny’s blood and urine samples have similar structural characteristics to the toxic chemicals belonging to schedules 1.A.14 and 1.A.15."
Read previous disinformation claims alleging that the chemical attacks in Syria have been staged and filmed by the media of the Western countries; that the Navalny poisoning could be a strategy of the West to introduce anti-Russian sanctions, that Russia is accused of poisoning without proof; or that US used Navalny case to block Russian vaccine against COVID-19.
