As talks of nuclear war continue, Russia is warning of a “radiation disaster.” The war rhetoric is ever-increasing and could ignite globally at any time.
“Today we face the threat of a radiation disaster,” Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, said in an article posted by the Russian embassy on the Telegram messaging app.
He made it clear that Russia believes Ukraine is still going to use a “dirty bomb” in a false flag attack and that it could be a devesting “radiation disaster.”
“Detonation of such radiological explosive device will have the magnitude comparable to an explosion of a low-yield nuclear weapon,” Antonov said. “The blast wave will disperse radioactive substances over the area of up to several thousand square meters. Contaminated territories will turn into an exclusion zone for 30-50 years.”

Russia Warns The West That Ukraine is Plotting A False Flag “Dirty Bomb” Attack
The West has said Russia’s claims that Ukraine will use a “dirty bomb” are false. The United Nations watchdog confirmed last week that found no sign of “undeclared nuclear activities” at three sites it inspected in Ukraine in response to the allegations from Russia, according to a report by Newsweek.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a statement on Thursday saying that it had been granted “unfettered access” to the Institute for Nuclear Research in Kyiv, Eastern Mining and Processing Plant in Zhovti Kody, and Production Association Pivdennyi Machine-Building Plant in Dnipro.
“Based on the evaluation of the results available to date and the information provided by Ukraine, the agency did not find any indications of undeclared nuclear activities and materials at the locations,” the IAEA said. –Newsweek
A dirty bomb is defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a mix of explosives and radioactive material such as powder or pellets. “When the dynamite or other explosives are set off, the blast carries radioactive material into the surrounding area,” the CDC states on its website.
The main danger from a dirty bomb is from the explosion, which can cause serious injuries and property damage. The radioactive materials used in a dirty bomb would probably not create enough radiation exposure to cause immediate serious illness, except to those people who are very close to the blast site. However, the radioactive dust and smoke spread farther away could be dangerous to health if it is inhaled. –Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Antonov claimed that an “even more dangerous scenario” Kyiv is considering “is a provocation at nuclear power plants located in the territory controlled by Ukraine.”
“This could lead to an accident comparable to the Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters which the world has not yet recovered from,” Antonov added.
