MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry reported a drone attack on the positions of Russian troops in Ukraine using toxic substances, Chief of Russian Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Force Igor Kirillov announced on Saturday.
"On April 21, 2022, an unmanned aerial vehicle dropped onto the position of Russian troops a container with ampoules. They were expected to trigger a chemical reaction that would cause an explosion and fire with the release of toxic substances outside of conventional lists," he said. According to him, the ampoules are currently being analyzed.
Kirillov recalled that today the United States is the only state in world history that has used all three types of weapons of mass destruction.
"In an attempt to discredit the special military operation of the Russian troops, the Kiev regime, at the suggestion of the US administration, is able to implement in scenarios that will lead to the death of tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens and cause an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe in the near future," he emphasized.
