Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu On October 23, he repeatedly called his colleagues in France and Turkey to tell them about the “dirty bomb”, reports BBC News.
The Russian state agency RIA Novosti unexpectedly wrote on Sunday morning that Ukraine is allegedly planning to throw a “dirty bomb” into the air on its territory, i.e. a conventional munition, the explosion of which releases radioactive substances or a low-power nuclear charge into the atmosphere.
At the same time, it referred to “reliable sources in various countries, including Ukraine,” without providing any other confirmation. RIA Novosti wrote that this was a provocation aimed at accusing Russia of using weapons of mass destruction.
“It became known from various sources that under the leadership of Western curators, Kyiv has already begun the practical implementation of this plan. The management of the Eastern Mining and Enrichment Combine, located in the city of Zhovti Vody, Dnipropetrovsk Region, as well as the Kyiv Institute for Nuclear Research, were charged with the production of the same “dirty bomb”. Work on it is already at the final stage. At the same time, on the instructions of Volodymyr Zelensky, officials of the office of the President of Ukraine from his close circle are conducting secret contacts with representatives of Great Britain regarding the possible transfer of components for nuclear weapons to the authorities in Kyiv.– says the message of the Russian propagandists.
Shoigu also held telephone conversations with British Defense Minister Ben Wallace. To his British colleague, he expressed his fears of possible provocations by Ukraine with the use of a “dirty bomb”.
The adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, Mykhailo Podolyak, said that the statements of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu about Ukraine’s alleged preparation to detonate a “dirty bomb” are predictable absurdity, LIGA.net writes.
“Absolute and completely predictable absurdity in the presentation of subjects who, as ever, continue to believe that one can blatantly lie – and someone will believe it”– said Podoliak.
The military-political observer from the group “Information Resistance” Alexander Kovalenko believes that “in the conditions of a total fiasco in the zone of military operations and the impossibility of influencing the situation in any other way than through terror on the civilian population, Russia cannot use other methods of pressure on the Ukrainian authorities, other than terrorist ones’.
“For the entire period of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has repeatedly tried to accuse our country of its own crimes, which is a primitive method of self-whitewashing. But the other, primitive Russian propaganda, based on Nazi practices, slightly modified during the USSR, they simply do not have. And that is why it is not excluded that this mass coverage of Russian information platforms is the result of preparation for some terrorist act, which will not remain outside the attention of the international public. That is why the primitive propaganda mechanism started to grind again”he believes
As “FACTS” wrote, the unannounced visit of the British Defense Minister Ben Wallace to the USA at the last minute is connected with the growing fears that the Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to use nuclear weapons.
