U.S. Warns Of Possible Russian Chemical Or Biological Attack In Ukraine

“We do believe that we should be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons,” the official said.

WASHINGTON (Fwrd Axis) — United States officials are warning Russia could launch a chemical or biological weapons attack in Ukraine after the Russian Defense Ministry falsely claimed Ukraine is planning a false operation chemical weapon attack.

A senior administration official told FWRD AXIS News the Russians are making the claim “to justify a false-flag operation or them using chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine themselves.”

“We do believe that we should be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons,” the official said.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki put out a series of tweets, saying the United States is aware of Russia’s “false claims” and has also heard Chinese officials “echo these conspiracy theories.”

“To be clear: this is preposterous,” said Psaki in a statement. “We should all be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine, or to create a false-flag operation using them. It’s a clear pattern, and no one should fall for it.”

“We’ve got good reason to be concerned,” said one Western official.

On Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed Ukraine is preparing an attack using poisonous substances. Security and disinformation experts have said Russian officials and media have also claimed in recent days that Ukraine was planning to build a so-called “dirty bomb” – but provided no evidence to their claims.

Russia’s Embassy tweeted they recently found documents” showed components of biological weapons were made in Ukrainian laboratories” with help funding from the U.S. Department of Defense.

Over the past few days, Russia has escalated its attack on Kharkiv and Mariupol, including bombing a children’s hospital in Ukraine.

“Russian forces do not fire on civilian targets. Russia calls its incursion a “special operation” to disarm its neighbor and dislodge leaders it calls “neo-Nazis”, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

“It is horrifying to see the type of the barbaric use of military force to go after innocent civilians in a sovereign country,” Psaki said.
