In a chilling development, Ukrainian authorities have been handing out potassium-iodine pills in Kyiv as the capital prepares for a Russian nuclear attack.
The city council of the Ukrainian capital confirmed that it is supplying the pills to evacuation centers in preparation for a possible nuclear strike on the capital.
This comes as Russia rattles its nuclear saber while its forces continue to be pushed back, despite Moscow having declared four regions its own.
The pills contain potassium iodine, which can help block the absorption of harmful radiation (such as nuclear radiation). iodine 131) by the thyroid gland in the event of a nuclear disaster – if taken shortly before or immediately after exposure to nuclear radiation.
This is based on the assumption that only radioactive iodine Is used.
Kiev authorities said in a statement they will distribute the pills in areas contaminated by radioactive radiation in case evacuation is necessary.
Putin has been audacious in his threats to turn the already devastating war into a nuclear one – and Russian military doctrine leaves the door open for them to use a nuclear weapon.
Vlad’s largest submarine, Belgorod, which can be armed with “Apocalypse” nuclear torpedoes, is on the move and there have been reports of a convoy traveling in Russia with a nuclear unit.
And now the world is waiting with bated breath to see if Putin will carry out his threats, as his army suffered further humiliating defeats yesterday as Ukraine charged at Kherson.
Defense sources are reportedly claiming that one of the options on the table is that Putin could detonate a nuclear weapon at the border in a massive show of force, reports The Times.
In fact, there are fears that Putin is planning a low-yield nuclear test on the border with Ukraine.
Russian state television was awash with talk of nuclear war – while Putin’s mouthpiece anchors constantly raised the possibility throughout the conflict, even suggesting that London be destroyed with nuclear weapons.
Putin – who is reportedly becoming increasingly unpredictable over his health concerns – has the world’s largest nuclear arsenal within reach.
And he gave a rambling speech last Friday as Russia annexed four regions in eastern Ukraine, in which he moaned constantly and incoherently about the West.
A Twitter user, posting anonymously, suggested that Polish authorities may have also been distributing potassium-iodine pills.
“I live 60 km from the border with Ukraine! In Poland they have already supplied schools potassium iodine pills,” he says.
