NATO calls on Russia to reveal Novichok program

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated on Friday that the "appalling assassination attempt" on Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny using a nerve agent from the Novichok group is an "unacceptable breach of international norms and rules."

He called on Russia to fully cooperate with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on an "impartial, international investigation" and to provide complete disclosure of the Novichok program to the organization. Stoltenberg also condemned the Russian government, stating that it has attacked its critics "time and again," and urging an international response.
