What are Novichoks?
Novichoks are Fourth Generation Agents (FGAs) in the chemical warfare category which were specifically designed under the Russian Foliant program in the 1970s and 1980s to circumvent NATO countermeasures including detection, protection, and decontamination. Although new, these agents have been used with varying degrees of success in recent years. Attacks include the attempted assassination of Russian counter-agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, UK, and more recently Alexei Navalky in Russia.
