Russia’s defence ministry has “readied forces and capabilities” to deal with radioactive contamination following Moscow’s unsubstantiated and disputed claims that Ukraine is developing a “dirty bomb”.
Igor Kirillov, commander of Russia’s nuclear, chemical and biological defence forces, on Monday said Ukraine wanted to spread radioactive material on its own country with the intention of framing Russia to undermine support for Moscow worldwide. Kyiv was allegedly reaching the “final stage” of building a nuclear weapon and is requesting support from the UK, Kirillov claimed. He provided no evidence for his allegations.
The military briefing comes as Ukraine has vehemently rejected Russia’s accusations as “dirty blackmail”. Kyiv has said that Moscow is seeking to pressure western powers into dropping their support for Ukraine and pushing it to accept a peace deal on Russia’s terms.

Washington, London and Paris — Nato’s three nuclear powers — issued a joint statement on Monday saying Russia’s claims were “transparently false”. They warned Moscow against using them as a pretext to escalate the war in Ukraine.
Kirillov’s briefing marked the first time Russia had raised its level of preparation for potential nuclear use since the early days of Vladimir Putin’s war eight months ago. It follows warnings from the Russian president that he stood ready to use nuclear weapons to fend off Ukrainian counteroffensives in eastern and southern parts of the country, which he now considers part of Russia.
Putin said he was ready to use “all the means at our disposal” to defend Russia after announcing the unilateral annexation of four Ukrainian regions last month. On Sunday, defence minister Sergei Shoigu set alarm bells ringing in Nato capitals by initiating phone calls with his US, UK, French and Turkish counterparts to discuss Russia’s claim of a “dirty bomb”.
“Our countries made clear that we all reject Russia’s transparently false allegations that Ukraine is preparing to use a dirty bomb on its own territory,” Paris, Washington and London said in their joint statement. “The world would see through any attempt to use this allegation as a pretext for escalation. We further reject any pretext for escalation by Russia.”
The warnings from Kirillov, who commands troops responsible for dealing with radioactive contamination rather than for readying nuclear forces, echoed previous unsubstantiated Russian claims that Ukraine was preparing to use biological weapons in the conflict.
In a similar presentation in March, Kirillov accused Ukraine of setting up a network of US-backed labs that he claimed developed “bioagents capable of infecting specific ethnic groups” and studied how migratory birds could spread the pathogens into Russia.

Ukraine accused Russia of making the claims to lay the groundwork for a possible chemical or biological weapons attack that ultimately did not materialise.
Experts likened the claims to Russia’s frequent accusations of “provocations” with chemical weapons in Syria, including one Kirillov mentioned on Monday, that sometimes preceded attacks on rebel-held areas but more often came to nothing.

Most definitely a concern. But I’m a cup half full sort of guy and think the dirty nuke threat and election fraud has been countered. Also, if the common man has heard about it, they never let it happen. They never let a rumor be confirmed. That empowers the people. Anything bad that they may be planned, and actually happens, we would not hear about it ahead of time. So, I consider all the Fear Porn as Countermeasures.
Sometimes those rumors are like a counter measure to thwart a false flag too, Gary. If the idea is out in the wild, then it prevents it from happening. Hard to say. I know one thing, that is, dems have nothing to run on for midterms. Abortion (moloch sacrifices) and J6 fake insurrectionists won’t cut the mustard. Dems and their trannypedohomo agenda won’t be a popular issue either. FJB and the pedocrats. Lol.
Satanic elitists would definitely love WWIII. So would neocons, military industrial complex, and leftist deep state assklowns. Times are ripe for a false flag to initiate the conflict. Excluding election and voter fraud, our midterms would definitely be in favor of Conservatives.
A hot war would postpone leftist defeat in midterm elections. Buckle up and be prepared for shenanigans. Psychopathic devil-worshipping perverts are capable of anything.
