One of the main developers of gas “Beginner” chemist Vil Mirzayanov have rejected the idea that non-state groups or criminal gangs might be behind the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.

About it writes The Guardian.

“A criminal organization or a non-state group can’t stand for this attack. It’s very, very hard to do. For such operations requires a highly skilled specialist, because it is a very dangerous weapon, you can kill yourself. First of all, you must have a very good shield, a special container. To activate the weapon without special technical equipment is impossible,” said the chemist.

“I worked about 30 years in the lab, where we developed a “Newbie”, but I don’t know how to use it as a weapon,” he said.

Previously a member of the labour party Jeremy Corbyn suggested that those responsible for the poisoning could be a mafia group. He also did not rule out “the interests of the oligarchs in London.” But Mirzayanov rejects it.

“These theories do not make sense to activate the poison, you must have vast experience and equipment,” insisted the chemist.

Mirzayanov said that the attack could be the Russian Federation.

“No country does not have such possibilities as Russia, as Russia has invented, tested, and “armed” “Beginner “, – he stressed.

“I think they used a binary version. It’s two vials, small containers. Binary version or two non-prohibited materials are mixed for the production of “Newbie”, – said the chemist.
