"They [warfare agents - TASS] were eliminated in accordance with OPCW procedures and rules, which was properly documented. Any speculations Russia still produces or keeps in stock the old reserves of chemical warfare agents are disinformation, of course," he said.

"No signs of presence of poisonous substances were detected in Navalny’s body, there were none. <…> When Alexei Navalny departed from Russia, his body contained no toxic or poisonous substances," he insisted.
