Be the first. A story from the other side of the iron curtain, "State Secrets" offers a vivid picture of Soviet science and one man standing against the use of deadly toxins in war.
By Pavel Solovyev on Dec 31, An excellent inside on clandestine chemical weapons program of the Evil Empire given by man who saw from the inside! By Wally on Feb 26, State secrets is by far the most long winded and painfully slow novel on chemical weapons written by a disgruntled defected scientist from Russia I have ever read!

If you want to hear an employ with delusions of grandeur moan about every person he ever worked with then this is the book for you, otherwise don't waste your sweet time. Nothing happens except Vil somethingkov helps make things that kill people for 30 years, gets a sort of conscience, defects, and constantly whinges about By Irene Goldman on Jun 13, This book is a unique historical account of a man's life lived on the edge in Soviet Russia and in the highly secret chemical weapons program where he worked for 26 years. Mirzayanov's memoir is stunning in its detail, openness and boldness in describing this secret program.
Many people think the issue of chemical weapons has disappeared or been resolved by the Chemical Weapons Convention, but they are mistaken as Mirzayanov courageously and boldly demonstrates.
The other big story in this book is Mirzayanov's battle to defend his rights in Russia's arcane legal system and his successful suit against the State. Furthermore, it is a compelling story of how a few activists can help bring justice to events a world away.

In Kuznetsov also became a member of the expert commission that the KGB investigator appointed to consider my case and signed the indictment. But in Kuznetsov, who was a very narrow-minded person, came running to my office after each trip to Geneva and breathlessly told me about his new work. A few years later, he was also an expert on my case and argued with enthusiasm that I was guilty of disclosing state secrets.

At that time, the question of how the verification of the CWC would work in the future was a great problem in the negotiations. The majority of the delegations, including the U. So the analysis of emissions of the ventilated air, sewage, and other waste became very important. That is why highly precise and sensitive methods of analysis of chemical compounds played a crucial role.
Mainly the emphasis was on looking for organic phosphorus compounds that had a direct chemical bond between carbon and phosphorous atoms C-P bond. Chemical products with the same bond could be produced for civilian applications at the same facilities producing organophosphorus-based chemical agents.
Later on, common sense prevailed in Geneva, and the CWC was signed in the beginning of , stipulating on-site inspections as a normal control procedure. However, the development of the more toxic chemical agent A, in which the carbon atom is bonded to the phosphorous atom through the oxygen atom C-O-P bond , considerably complicated the control process. My point is that many agricultural chemicals, which are produced at ordinary chemical plants, have the same bonds.
