The United States has accused Russia of using the banned chemical ‘chloropicrin’ on the battlefield in Ukraine. This chemical was used extensively during World War I. US State Department officials say the attack in Ukraine with this weapon is not an “isolated” incident. Russia often uses it.

According to US officials, the use of these weapons may violate the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). According to the convention, which has been ratified by 193 countries, no new chemical weapons can be acquired or development of such weapons possessed.

According to the CWC, the use of chloropicrin in any war is strictly prohibited. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the use of this chemical in oil can cause inflammation of the lungs, eyes and skin of people. It can also cause vomiting, nausea and diarrhea.
