If you think it is funny to poison people with a nerve agent which kills or leaves the victim in a paralysed state for life then you are a sick individual.

The opening
NihilDesperandum

It's provocation to illegitimate Russia as country which apply chemical weapon. Like a previous ones with Syria and Asad. 

What practical aim? Maybe exclude Russia from United Nations Security Council.

not sure if you're trolling right now, but that's someone's joke. novichok would be the English spelling for a Russian word meaning "new person (as to a game)" or "novice" (lol it actually gives you the word novice if you right-click on the word when it has the red line under it)

But in all seriousness, to get back on topic... isn't the Novichok Attack another name for the poisoned pawn variation of the English opening?

The English Novichok? I think I remember hearing that once. Isn't there an Italian Novichok, or the Russian Novichok opening?
