The United States is allegedly getting ready to stage a “provocation”, in order to accuse Moscow of using chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons in Ukraine, Russia’s Defense Ministry lied on April 23.
The Putin regime has falsified a narrative of so-called “provocation of chemical and biological objects” in Kharkiv and Kyiv “with civilian casual-ties,” as well as some sort of an operation at the Russia-occupied Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
Russia has also fear-mongered about Western powers supposedly using WMDs in the battlefield, near Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.
During a briefing, the Russian ministry outlined the potential targets that they lied the “Americans” are targeting. The Kremlin’s ramblings are meant to falsely claim that “NATO” WMDs are threatening Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol, Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and the Zaporizhzhya NPP.
Russia has further lied that the United States is planning this false flag operation in order to pressure China and India into imposing sanctions on Russia, prompted by “Russia’s successes in conducting the special military operation.”
Russian nuclear saber-rattling led to Washington warning Putin of Western retaliation.
Moscow, however, presents this warning as “evidence” of nefarious U.S. plans.
NATO members supplying Ukraine with protective chemical hazard gear was also spun by Russian propagandists as “evidence” of planned “provocations.” Military-grade hazmat suits have been sent to Ukraine in response to limited instances of Russians using certain elements of chemical warfare, in particular – in Mariupol.
