RIA Novosti Charges Kiev with Preparing a False-Flag Nuclear Incident
Oct. 23, 2022 (EIRNS)—RIA Novosti reported this morning that, according to “credible sources in various countries—including Ukraine,” Kiev is fashioning a false-flag provocation involving the detonation of a “dirty bomb.” The conventional bomb, rigged with nuclear material that would be dispersed with the explosion, would allow for “a powerful anti-Russian campaign in the world....” “From various sources it became known that, under the leadership of Western curators, Kyiv has already begun the practical implementation of this plan. The leadership of the Eastern Mining and Processing Plant, located in the city of Zhovti Vody, Dnepropetrovsk region, as well as the Kyiv Institute for Nuclear Research, was tasked with making the very ‘dirty bomb.’ Work on it is already at the final stage....” according to the source of Alexander Artamov, who reports to Argumenty i Fakty (in Russian).
Further, close associates of President Zelenskyy in the Office of the President of Ukraine “are conducting covert contacts with representatives of the U.K. on the issue of a possible transfer of nuclear weapons components to the Kiev authorities.”
“The calculation of the organizers of the provocation is that if it is successfully implemented, most countries will react extremely harshly to the ‘nuclear incident’ in Ukraine. As a result, Moscow will lose the support of many of its key partners, and the West will again try to raise the issue of depriving Russia of the status of a permanent member of the UN Security Council and increase anti-Russian rhetoric,”
Russian Defense Secretary Shoigu quickly initiated a round of calls Sunday to the Defense Ministers of Turkey, France, the U.K. and the U.S., regarding the development.
