How could Novichok have poisoned people four months after the Skripal attack?

Russia has as usual tried to cast doubt on its responsibility for the poisoning of two people in Amesbury with the same batch of Novichok that was used in the Skripal assissination attempt. One line the Kremlin propaganda machine has thrown out into the information space is “how could the agent have lasted so long?”. Chemical weapons expert Dan Kaszeta explains the various factors that show it is entirely realistic for the deadly nerve agent to still have been potent enough to kill four months later.

The widely publicised attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury in March 2018 certainly did a lot to bring chemical warfare agents, particularly nerve agents, into the public consciousness in the UK and elsewhere.
