OPCW violates Russia’s rights and/or demonstrates open Russophobia

Summary

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) violated the Chemical Weapons Convention when it agreed with the findings of the British investigation on the Skripal case. Why does Russia need to be a member of international organizations that openly violate Russia’s rights or demonstrate open Russophobia?

Disproof

The OPCW representatives merely refused another disinformation message spread by Russia, namely that the OPCW had found a western military chemical agent in the poison: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/apr/18/opcw-rejects-russian-claims-of-second-salisbury-nerve-agent

This is how the OPCW have confirmed the UK findings in the case: "The results of the analysis by the OPCW designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people." https://www.opcw.org/news/article/opcw-issues-report-on-technical-assistance-requested-by-the-united-kingdom/

Ukraine is a Nazi regime

The process of granting autocephaly to the Ukrainian orthodox Church will result in the collapse of the Nazi regime in Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that is repeated ever since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Ukraine&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77101&date=,

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens: bit.ly/1Tl9X7W, .

There is no evidence the Skripal poisoning suspects are GRU agents

Suddenly, accusations appeared that the two Skripal poisoning suspects are not businessmen Boshirov and Petrov (as was the Russian version), but GRU agents Chepiga and Mishkin. But is there any evidence of that? There is none.

Disproof

The dialogue between Russia and the West is limited to sanctions, pressure and threats

The dialogue between Russia and the West is limited to sanctions, pressure, threats and isolation. It is directed by Lenin’s principle “one step forward, two steps backward”.

The EU's most recent policy vis-a-vis Russia has been formulated in 2016 in the Five Guiding Principles that include selective engagement with Russia on issues like migration, counter-terrorism, or climate change; or support for Russia's civil society.
