Ukraine’s Top General Doesn’t Rule Out “Limited” Nuclear War

Ukraine’s top military chief has warned that Russia could unleash nukes if its army is against the ropes in Ukraine. The comments were issued Wednesday amid an ongoing Ukrainian counteroffensive in the south and east which both Kiev and Washington say has so far had “success”.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Gen. Valery Zaluzhny stated “There is a direct threat of the use, under certain circumstances, of tactical nuclear weapons by the Russian armed forces.” He wrote this in an op-ed published by state run outlet Ukrinform, with the alarming words being picked up by The Washington Post and others.

“It is also impossible to completely rule out the possibility of the direct involvement of the world’s leading countries in a ‘limited’ nuclear conflict, in which the prospect of World War III is already directly visible,” Zaluzhny added. 

The top commander further issued his first official confirmation that the unprecedented large strikes on Russia’s Crimea bases and an arms depot widely reported in August were Ukrainian operations. The initial early August huge Saki air base explosion had previously only been acknowledged as a Ukrainian strike via anonymous leaks to Western media outlets by senior Kiev officials.

At around the same time as those opening Crimea attacks, which have continued sporadically since then, President Zelensky vowed to “liberate” the Russian-held territory, which the Kremlin gained control of after a 2014 popular referendum, which wasn’t recognized by Europe or the US.

According to Gen. Zaluzhny’s words as featured in The Washington Post

With the fighting all but certain to continue into 2023, Ukraine has to make the war “even sharper and more tangible for the Russians and for other occupied regions, despite the massive distance to the targets,” Zaluzhny wrote.

He called the Crimean strikes a “convincing example” of Kyiv’s calls for allies to send longer-range weapons for its outgunned soldiers. Moscow, he said, can hit 20 times farther.

Moscow for its part has also expressed alarm over the potential for nuclear-armed confrontation with the West over Ukraine, given Washington’s steadily growing involvement – especially the billions of dollars in weapons and military aid being poured into the Ukrainian side. It has also rejected charges that it is prepared to use nukes.

During a speech to the United Nations early last month, Russian diplomat Alexander Trofimov rejected “utterly unfounded, detached from reality and unacceptable speculations that Russia allegedly threatens to use nuclear weapons, particularly in Ukraine.”

Per Reuters, he stressed Russia’s official position, explaining that nuclear arms could only be used in “response to weapons of mass destruction or a conventional weapons attack that threatened the existence of the Russian state.”

‘Gold Teeth’ Ukraine Recovered From ‘Russian Mini-Auschwitz Torture Chamber’ Were Actually From Village Dentist – Report

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry on Tuesday posted a photograph of a box of “gold dental crowns” they claimed were extracted from Ukrainian victims in a “torture chamber” in Pisky-Radkivski they dubbed a “mini Auschwitz.”

“A torture chamber in Pisky-Radkivski,” the Ukrainian Defense Ministry tweeted. “2 photos. A gas mask that was put on the head of a victim who was covered with a smoldering rag and buried alive. And a box of gold dental crowns. A mini Auschwitz. How many more will be found in occupied Ukraine?”

The story was spread to millions by Ukrainian officials and media outlets like The Telegraphand The Independent.

The German media outlet BILD visited Pisky-Radkivski to investigate the story themselves and found that the crowns were actually taken from the village dentist.

“[T]he teeth that were found apparently do not come from dead or tortured people – but from patients of the local dentist,” BILD reported

“The teeth look like from my stolen collection,” says Sergey (60). BILD had shown him the ministry’s picture. “I’m the only dentist here. So if they were found here, they must be by me.”

The dentist assumes that the Russians stole the teeth because they thought they are made of real gold (they are actually made of stainless steel) – and because they wanted to intimidate the Ukrainians. “Some residents told me that the Russians used the teeth to scare people,” Sergey reports.

Asked whether the crowns might come from dead people, the dentist replies: “My God, no! They come from people I have treated all those years. I took these teeth out because they were bad.”

The doctor tells BILD: “Over the course of 30 years, I have removed tens of thousands of teeth. This is just a fraction of them. Sometimes, I pull out five to eight teeth in one day. I have been doing this for 33 years.”

It is not clear where the gas mask came from that can be seen on the other photo.

It’s also not clear where the dildo came from (BILD left that gem out of their story)!

US Intel Concludes Ukraine Was Responsible For Car Bombing That Killed Darya Dugina

Car bombing private citizens is what the ‘good guys’ do.

US intelligence officials have concluded that the Ukrainian government ordered the car bombing of Darya Dugina, the daughter of political philosopher Aleksandr Dugin.

Despite Kyiv denying responsibility for the attack, which took place in August, “US intelligence agencies have now concluded that the explosion was sanctioned by parts of the Ukrainian government,” reports the Telegraph.

The US reportedly had nothing to do with the attack, had no advance knowledge, and chastised the Ukrainians when it found out they were responsible.

The intended target of the attack was almost certainly Aleksandr Dugin, whom the western media claims is a “close ally” of Vladimir Putin yet has seemingly never met the Russian president.

Dugin had initially planned to travel to Moscow in the same car as his daughter, but ended up traveling in a different vehicle.

Asked about the assessment, Ukrainian government spokesman Mykhailo Podolyak continued to deny involvement, telling the New York Times, “Someone like Dugina is not a tactical or a strategic target for Ukraine.”

The Telegraph calls the murder “one of the boldest operations of the war to date,” a description they presumably wouldn’t use if Russia blew up the daughters of obscure Ukrainian commentators.

At the time, many legacy media outlets claimed that the attack was likely a “false flag” carried out by Russia, which is how they respond to virtually every attack targeting Russia or Russians.

Apparently, car bombing private citizens is now something that the ‘good guys’ do.

U.S. Buying $290M Worth of Anti-Radiation Drugs for Use in ‘Nuclear Emergency’

Published

The Biden regime is buying up $290 million in anti-radiation drugs for use in “nuclear emergencies” amid escalating tensions with Russia and heightened threats of a nuclear war.

From Health and Human Services:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 4, 2022

202-821-9446

HHS purchases drug for use in radiological and nuclear emergencies

As part of long-standing, ongoing efforts to be better prepared to save lives following radiological and nuclear emergencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is purchasing a supply of the drug Nplate from Amgen USA Inc; Nplate is approved to treat blood cell injuries that accompany acute radiation syndrome in adult and pediatric patients (ARS).

Amgen, based in Thousands Oaks, California, developed Nplate for ARS with support from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the HHS Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR), as well as the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.

BARDA is using its authority provided under the 2004 Project Bioshield Act and $290 million in Project BioShield designated funding to purchase this supply of the drug. Amgen will maintain this supply in vendor-managed inventory. This approach decreases life-cycle management costs for taxpayers because doses that near expiration can be rotated into the commercial market for rapid use prior to expiry and new doses can be added to the government supply.

ARS, also known as radiation sickness, occurs when a person’s entire body is exposed to a high dose of penetrating radiation, reaching internal organs in a matter of seconds. Symptoms of ARS injuries include impaired blood clotting as a result of low platelet counts, which can lead to uncontrolled and life-threatening bleeding.

To reduce radiation-induced bleeding, Nplate stimulates the body’s production of platelets. The drug can be used to treat adults and children.

Nplate is also approved for adult and pediatric patients with immune thrombocytopenia, a blood disorder resulting in low platelet counts. Repurposing drugs for acute radiation syndrome that also are approved for a commercial indication helps to sustain availability of the product and improves healthcare provider familiarity with the drug.

“The US government said the procurement of Nplate was not in response to the war in Ukraine,” The Telegraph reported.

“An HSS spokesman told The Telegraph: ‘This is part of our ongoing work for preparedness and radiological security. It has not been accelerated by the situation in Ukraine.'”

The State Department last week urged all Americans to leave Russia “as soon as possible” in the wake of the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines.

The official reasoning they gave was to avoid getting conscripted in their mobilization effort but that logic only applied to dual citizens and their advisory was for all Americans.

As I noted at the time, the real reason they told everyone to leave is more likely the risk of a full-blown war breaking out due to the US, Ukraine or Poland being responsible for the belligerent bombing of the Nord Steam pipelines.

While Russia has issued statement after statement warning the US they will use nuclear weapons to defend their territory and are “not bluffing,” the US has been shipping billions in high-tech weaponry to Ukraine to attack Russian forces and strike inside of Russia. 

Just last week, Congress voted to send another $12.3 billion in military and economic aid to Ukraine.

Biden said in February after the war broke out that Americans should not be worried about a nuclear war then spent the next eight months antagonizing Russia (and China) with endless provocations to make nuclear war more likely than ever.
