The United States has conducted a virtual training with Estonian partners on the prevention and investigation of mass destruction (WMD) killings, the State Department said..

According to the department, this is part of a series of initiatives that the State Department plans to carry out across Europe..

“Recent events in Europe have highlighted the real threat of government-sanctioned targeted attacks using weapons of mass destruction,” the agency said in a statement. “To effectively counter such monstrous actions, reliable communication channels are needed between technical experts, law enforcement agencies and politicians.”.

US experts and international partners have provided the Estonian authorities with the information they need to develop contingency plans, assign roles and responsibilities, and create an environment that allows authorities to conduct investigations quickly and efficiently.

The State Department recalled that in the past, Russia has repeatedly used weapons of mass destruction when attempting to assassinate its opponents, including using nerve agents from the Novichok group when trying to poison Sergei Skripal in the UK in 2018 and Alexei Navalny in Tomsk in 2020.

“We call on Russia to stop further use of chemical weapons and fully disclose and destroy its chemical weapons program in accordance with the obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention,” the statement said..

“The United States is committed to helping our partners around the world counter malicious acts and hopes to continue to work together to help them identify, investigate, investigate, and provide effective responses to suspected weapons of mass destruction weapons,” the State Department added..
