Russia could launch chemical attack in Ukraine: White House

Russia announces reduction of attacks on Ukraine

WASHINGTON: The White House has said it fears a chemical attack by Russia in Ukraine.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told a news conference that Russia was planning to attack Ukraine with chemical or biological weapons, and that we should all keep an eye on that.

Jane Sackie called Russia’s claims about US biological weapons, laboratory and chemical weapons production in Ukraine as “baseless.”

She said Russia’s “false claims” were certainly a ploy to justify provocative attacks.

Jen Psaki said that Russia could use these weapons to launch another False Flag Operation in Ukraine, which is very clear.

Earlier, Britain’s Ministry of Defense has said that Russia had used “dangerous rockets” in Ukraine, commonly known as “vacuum bombs,” which could have caused oxygen shortages in the surrounding area and the temperature in the atmosphere rises.

Last week, Russia had declared a partial ceasefire with the view to allow humanitarian corridors out of the Ukrainian cities of Volnovakha and Mariupol.

The Russia’s defence ministry said that from 10am Moscow time (0700 GMT), the Russian side declares a ceasefire besides opening of humanitarian corridors to allow civilians to leave Volnovakha and Mariupol.

Meanwhile, Russia had blocked Facebook and some other websites. Moscow also passed a law that gave the country much stronger powers to crack down on journalism. As a result, Bloomberg, BBC and other foreign media suspended reporting in the country.

The war had rendered over one million people refugees. Russia is now facing a barrage of sanctions that are increasingly isolating Moscow.

Russia said its invasion is a “special operation” to arrest elements it regards as dangerous nationalists, and has denied targeting civilians.
