The OPCW was unable to establish the origin of the nerve agent used in the Skripal attack

Summary of Disinformation

The OPCW was unable to establish the origin of the nerve agent used to poison the former Russian double agent and his daughter in the English town of Salisbury on March 4.

Disproof

The OPCW report clearly states that “the results of 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."

The OPCW report does not name the nerve agent directly; its name and chemical structure were sent in a classified report to OPCW member states. www.opcw.org/fileadmin/OPCW/S_series/2018/en/s-1612-2018_e_.pdf,
