At least 15 people have become victims of the use of chemical weapons components by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). This was announced on November 28 by the head of the radiation, chemical and Biological Protection Troops (RCBZ), Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov.
«During a special military operation, 17 cases of the use of chemical weapons components by the Armed Forces of Ukraine for poisoning food were recorded, which caused the death of at least 15 people,» he said at the session of the III Congress of Young Scientists.
Kirillov noted that the chemical compounds found by the Russian military used in the chemical weapons component are produced «only in one country.»
Also during his speech, Kirillov admitted that the APU may use biological means in connection with the failure in the counteroffensive. According to him, the probability of such events can be indirectly indicated by the fact that a large number of strains transferred from American collections of thermal cultures were found in the liberated territories.
On the eve of the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Kirill Lysogorsky said at a session at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that Russia has indisputable evidence that the United States is involved in the supply of toxic chemicals to Ukraine. He noted that the Russian Federation has information about the use of toxic chemicals by agents of Kiev’s special services against the leadership of the new subjects of Russia.
In October, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova announced Russia’s intention to send to the OPCW data on Kiev’s failed provocations with toxic and toxic substances for their transfer to NATO countries and Japan. Then she pointed out that the Russian Federation was at the origin of the development of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), strictly adheres to its provisions and fulfills its obligations under it.
Before that, on October 3, the Union of Veterans of the special operation announced the use of toxic substances in the zone of a special military operation. According to the organization, Ukrainian militants began using drones treated with toxic substances, Cheremukha grenades and other types of toxic substances.
The special operation to protect Donbass, which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24 last year, continues. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
