Mikhail Voskresensky, a reporter for Russian RIA Novosti news agency, in his footage from Shayrat, captured some Russian or Soviet containers for binary chemical weapons. The photos were taken at Shayrat Air Base to demonstrate the aftermath of the American missile strike. In the case with sarin (GB-2) binary weapon the container consists of two canisters: one containing isopropyl alcohol and isopropylamine solution, the second – methylphosphonyl difluoride, which mix after the projectile deployment and produce toxic agent. The same containers can be seen on the photos that show the process of chemical munitions destruction by the Russian military at Pochep chemical weapons destruction facility (Bryansk Oblast, Russia), InformNapalm reported.
