"Today the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog have confirmed the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical used in the attempted assassination of Mr Skripal and his daughter, and which also resulted in the hospitalisation of a British police officer".
The part of the report that has been released does not specifically name Novichok, and it does not suggest where the nerve agent may have come from.
On April 1, Russian Federation sent 13 questions to the OPCW concerning the investigation into the poisoning of Sergei Skripal.
Russia lost a vote at the OPCW earlier this month to have a joint UK-Russian investigation into the Salisbury attack.
Britain blames Russian Federation for the March 4 poisoning of Sergei Skripal, seen here, and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury. The British special services suppose that Skripals were poisoned by his ex-colleague Andrey Lugovoy, who acted on orders from Moscow.
The OPCW analysis, which said the chemical was "of high purity", came after the Western countries expelled over 100 Russian diplomats from their countries in response to the poisoning, straining relations between Russia and the West.
The tests were carried out by four independent laboratories affiliated with OPCW and samples were transported under a "full chain of custody", the report said.
Skripal, 66, and his daughter, 33, were admitted to a hospital after being found unconscious on a public bench on March 4 in Salisbury. Yulia was discharged from the hospital on Monday.
There can be no doubt what was used and there remains no alternative explanation about who was responsible.
Others include intelligence that Russia has made nerve agents and studied how to use them for assassinations, and the view of Russian President Vladimir Putin's government that traitors are legitimate targets. She said Thursday her life is "totally different".
The Russian embassy is perturbed by a refusal from United Kingdom authorities to grant Ms Skripal's cousin Viktoria a visa to visit her family. "Until that time, I want to stress that no one speaks for me, or for my father, but ourselves".
Russia's Embassy in London questioned the authenticity of Yulia's statement, saying it was crafted to support Britain's version of events and increases suspicions that she is being held against her will. "So far, we doubt it much", the embassy said. It has led to one of the biggest diplomatic crises between Russian Federation and Western nations since the Cold War.
