It's the Russians, says chemist who uncovered existence of 'Novichok'The Russian chemist who first revealed the existence of “Novichok” nerve agents says only the Russians can be behind the weapon’s use in Britain against a former spy and his daughter. Vil Mirzayanov, 83, came to the United States in 1995 after 30 years of working for the State Scientific Research Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology, or GNIIOKhT. It was he who in the early 1990s revealed the existence of that class of ultra-powerful nerve agents.
