'No way' nerve agent could escape UK lab? Russia demands info on Porton Down toxin research

'No way' nerve agent could escape UK lab? Russia demands info on Porton Down toxin research --The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) specializes in Chemical, Biological and Radiological warfare. | 25 March 2018 | Porton Down lab claims no toxins could have escaped its "four walls," but has never denied the possession of the nerve agent used on the Skripals, the Russian Embassy said, urging the UK to disclose its chemical warfare program. The origin of the mysterious nerve agent, used on March 4 to poison former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, has been the main point of contention in the unraveling international scandal. While Britain claims that the alleged A-234 nerve agent - also known as Novichok - was a Soviet development and thus could only have been used by Russia, Moscow contends that the chemical has since been studied by numerous parties and could have been re-engineered elsewhere, including in the UK itself. Last week, in an interview with the BBC, Russia's ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, noted that a secret military research lab at Porton Down, which is located roughly seven miles from the scene of the incident, could have manufactured the deadly agent.
