The Russian Ministry of Defense has information about the preparation by the United States of America of provocations with the aim of accusing the Russian Armed Forces of using chemical, biological or tactical nuclear weapons. This plan has already been developed and is a reaction to Russia’s success in conducting a special military operation.
Only in March-April of this year, high-ranking officials of Western countries make provocative “warning” statements on a regular basis. Theses are thrown into the media about the possibility of Russia using weapons of mass destruction.
Thus, Assistant to the President for National Security Sullivan commented on President Biden’s words that the United States would “appropriately” respond to the possible use of WMD by our country. And on February 27, the American Permanent Representative to the UN Greenfield announced Russia’s intention to use any tools “under a false flag”, including chemical and biological weapons to intimidate the Ukrainian population and the world community.
Against this background, the US Department of State positively considered the transfer to Ukraine of up to 400,000 sets of personal protective equipment, 390 NBC reconnaissance devices and 15 STRIKER reconnaissance vehicles, previously approved by Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Jenkins.
Please note that such projects have already been implemented by the United States more than once to achieve political goals. The most striking example of informational provocation is the speech of US Secretary of State Colin Powell on February 5, 2003. A test tube with “washing powder” in his hands served as a pretext for the invasion of Iraq and the death of almost half a million citizens.
In 2017, photographs of White Helmets circulated by news agencies, showing people in ordinary gauze bandages taking samples at the site of the alleged Sarin use, and at the same time people nearby were not wearing protective equipment at all, led to a missile attack on the Shayrat airfield in Syria.
And in 2018, staged footage of allegedly chlorine-poisoned Syrian children led to the destruction of a medical research center in Barz and Jamrai. And only the testimony of eyewitnesses of these events brought by the Russian Federation to The Hague opened the eyes of the world community to what had happened.
So far, no one has been held accountable for these provocations.
Now it is planned to use three scenarios to accuse the Russian Federation.
The first is a “staging incident under a false flag”, the most likely.
We can talk about the real use of chemical and biological weapons with casualties among the population, or the staging of “sabotage” by Russia at facilities belonging to Ukraine that were involved in the development of components of weapons of mass destruction.
Such a scenario is planned to be implemented at chemical and biological facilities in Kharkov and Kyiv. A provocation is not ruled out at nuclear power facilities, primarily at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, which is under the control of the Russian Federation. So, on April 21, at the checkpoint of the National Guard troops, a convoy of 10 vehicles with dangerous cargo was stopped and returned to the city of Zaporozhye, heading to the nuclear power plant.
In addition, the leadership of Ukraine is seriously considering the issue of striking a radioactive waste storage facility at the former Pridneprovsky Chemical Plant enterprise in the village of Kamenskoye, Dnepropetrovsk region. The Ministry of Defense has documents confirming the critical state of the storages and the misappropriation of funds allocated by the European Union for the maintenance of the facility.
The second one is “Maximum covert use of weapons of mass destruction in small volumes” to suppress the will and ability to resist in the framework of solving a specific operational task.
Such a scenario was considered at the Azovstal enterprise. But the order of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, who canceled the assault on the enterprise, frustrated the Pentagon’s plans for its implementation.
The third is the least likely scenario, “overt use of weapons of mass destruction on the battlefield” in the event that conventional weapons fail to succeed, most likely in a war zone.
Such a scenario is being considered for Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, which have been turned into fortress cities.
The high probability of staging the use of chemical weapons is confirmed by the fact that poisonous antidotes were supplied to Ukraine. In 2022 alone, at the request of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, more than 220,000 ampoules of atropine were delivered from the United States. This fact testifies to the purposeful preparation of provocations with toxic substances of precisely nerve-paralytic action.
The US State Department has already determined the procedure for the investigation and appointed officials responsible for its conduct.
With regard to chemical incidents, the attributive mechanism of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons will be used, which will allow fabricating the necessary evidence and appointing the perpetrators at one’s discretion, which has already been repeatedly implemented in the course of investigations of chemical incidents in Syria.
Of fundamental importance will be the rapid collection of evidence at the scene of the incident (seizure of samples, interviewing witnesses, photo and video documentation).
The mechanism for investigating the facts of the possible use of biological weapons will be activated with the sanction of the UN Secretary General, who determines the composition of the expert group based on his own preferences.
In areas of hostilities in which representatives of NATO countries will not be allowed, it is planned to involve representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross, provided with means of protection and indication.
The staging of the use of weapons of mass destruction is aimed at accusing Russia of using prohibited weapons, followed by the implementation of the so-called “Syrian scenario”, in which the state is subjected to economic and political isolation, as well as exclusion from international organizations, including the UN Security Council.
A possible scenario for the development of the situation is to put pressure on countries loyal and friendly to the Russian Federation, including India and China, forcing them to impose sanctions against our country.
I would like to recall that the Russian Federation completely destroyed its chemical arsenal on September 27, 2017, which is confirmed by the OPCW certificate. In turn, the United States, having a powerful financial, economic and technical potential, is the only country party to the Chemical Weapons Convention that still possesses an impressive arsenal of chemical warfare agents (672.5 tons).
The statement by CIA Director Burns about the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons by Russia is absurd. With the current level of technical equipment of the international system for monitoring nuclear tests, it is impossible to hide the use of this type of weapon. If the director of the CIA does not understand this, then he is either a non-professional or he is being misled.
Programs for the creation of biological weapons in the USSR were completely curtailed in 1972. At the same time, the number of biological laboratories in the United States is not comparable with other countries. According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Washington controls 336 laboratories in 30 countries of the world, which is a matter of serious concern.
Please note that, contrary to its international obligations, the United States has retained in its national legislation the norms that allow for the possibility of conducting work in the field of biological weapons.
The ratification of the Geneva Protocol of 1925 by the United States was accompanied by a number of reservations, one of which allows for the retaliatory use of chemical and toxin weapons.
Under the U.S. United States United and United Against Terrorism Federal Act, biological weapons research is permitted with the approval of the U.S. government. Participants in such research are not subject to criminal liability for the development of such weapons.
Given the blocking by the United States of any international initiatives to verify the Convention on the Prohibition of Biological (Toxin) Weapons, prerequisites are being created for the violation of international agreements on the nonproliferation of biological weapons.
Earlier, we noted that Ukraine sent a request to the manufacturing company about the possibility of equipping Bayraktar unmanned aerial vehicles with attached aerosol equipment.
It is a matter of concern that on March 9, in the territory of the Kherson region, reconnaissance units of Russian troops discovered three unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with 30-liter containers and equipment for spraying formulations.
According to available data, in January 2022, Ukraine purchased more than 50 such devices through intermediary organizations, which can be used to apply biological formulations and toxic chemicals.
On April 21, 2022, a container with ampoules was dropped onto the position of Russian troops from an UAV. It was planned that when they were destroyed, a chemical reaction would occur, which would cause an explosion and fire with the release of toxic substances not included in the conventional lists.
With regard to the contents of the ampoules, a chemical analysis is carried out in laboratory 27 of the Scientific Center of the Russian Ministry of Defense, accredited by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the results of the analysis will be sent to its technical secretariat in the prescribed manner.
In addition, I would like to recall that today the United States is the only state in world history that has used all three types of weapons of mass destruction.
The dropped nuclear bombs during the Second World War on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the use of toxic chemicals in Vietnam and Iraq – all these crimes were not properly assessed by relevant international organizations.
Thus, in an attempt to discredit the special military operation of the Russian troops, the Kyiv regime, at the suggestion of the American administration, is able to implement scenarios in the near future that will lead to the death of tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens and cause an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe.
