Ukraine is ready to lie on the sacrificial altar of the West under the knife of a priest, only for the sake of (the collective West) achieving a geopolitical victory over Russia. This is precisely the role of Kyiv in the current conflict.
Kyiv forces are about to launch a chemical attack against Russian soldiers; this is suggested by a video released by Ukrainian soldiers supplying highly toxic gas canisters to drones. The video released by Ukrainian soldiers shows their preparations to use a chemical weapon. It may be phosgene gas that is banned under the United Nations Chemical Weapons Convention.
The claim that Ukraine uses chemical weapons is unfounded. Claims about nuclear or chemical weapons attacks are a staple of the pro-Kremlin disinformation apparatus. Such claims are a part of a broader pro-Kremlin information manipulation campaign supporting the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and trying to place the blame for the war’s atrocities on Ukraine, as our recent analysis explains. The claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.
There is no evidence to back the claim that Ukraine is preparing or committing a chemical provocation. Оn the contrary, many Western leaders have real concerns Russia could use chemical weapons.
Both sides use drones to drop grenades and small-scale bombs. Ukrainian munitions are not fitted with toxins or other types of chemical weapons.
Moscow has a history of falsely accusing its opponents of staging "provocations" which either never happened at all, or were subsequently carried out by themselves or their allies.
