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

Summary of Disinformation

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/
