MOSCOW, JUNE 24, 2021. PIR-PRESS. ” There is an interesting story for me in this book about US-Russian cooperation on the problems of chemical weapons in Syria, which partly arises from the “muscle memory” of many years of cooperation between the United States and Russia on chemical weapons issues.
