Russia has claimed the OPCW buried results from a Swiss lab probing the Skripal case that found a Western-developed nerve agent. It is the latest in a series of claims by Russia as it denies involvement in the poisoning.
Who is Sergei Skripal, the Russian poisoned with a nerve agent in the British city of Salisbury? Jailed in Russia for spying for UK intelligence, he was apparently "turned" into an asset for the West while in Spain.
The UK's OPCW representative said Russia "attacked the reputation" of the OPCW chemical weapons watchdog. It comes after an OPCW report confirmed UK findings on the chemical used in the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy.
The world's chemical weapons watchdog has confirmed Britain's findings that a nerve agent was used in an attack on an ex-spy and his daughter in Salisbury last month. Russia dismissed the findings.
