Ukraine Was Building Dirty Bomb. Advance Of Russian Troops Reveals New Circumstances

Possible creation of a nuclear bomb in Ukraine

Just before the beginning of Ukraine’s war with Russia, Vladimir Putin uttered a key phrase, the meaning of which was that Russia could not allow Ukraine to reacquire even tactical nuclear weapons and that Kiev was literally one step away from creating them. It was this emphasis that immediately fell out of the public spotlight amid claims of “denazification” and “demilitarization”. What is a dirty nuclear bomb and how likely is Kiev to have one?

The classic nuclear charge has a monstrous destructive power, but the effect of using such weapons is relatively short-lived. Yes, indeed, during a nuclear explosion extremely dangerous isotopes are formed, including strontium-89, strontium-90, cesium-137, zinc-64 and tantalum-181. These isotopes, once in the body, accumulate there, causing severe and often incurable diseases. For example, radioactive iodine accumulates in the thyroid gland, cesium in muscles, strontium in bones and so on.

At the same time, the affected area of a nuclear explosion denuclearizes rather quickly, i.e. actively loses radioactivity. Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the only cities in the history of mankind to have been nuclear bombed, are a case in point. The masses were under the impression that they left a scorched desert for decades, which is not true. As early as August 1949, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial City Construction Law was passed, which gave an immediate start to the total reconstruction of the city. That is, little more than four years had passed since the nuclear strike.

The principle of the dirty bomb is different. This type of munition is much simpler in its construction and does not require complex technical solutions. In fact, it is simply a delivery vehicle (missile, bomb or artillery shell) to which a container with radioactive filler is attached. One of the potentially most effective and therefore dangerous applications in general involves simply spraying radioactive dust from an airplane or any other aircraft.

Dangerous isotopes with long half-lives are deposited on the surface of the earth, plants, and further into the ground and aquifers, making the area dangerous to live in for many decades. To a man to develop radiation sickness it is enough to get just one sievert dose (Sv), a dose of 3 to 5 Sv leads either to death in a couple of months or to the development of cancer, 6 to 10 Sv is a guaranteed death as the irreversible death of bone marrow begins.

Ukraine Was Building Dirty Bomb. Advance Of Russian Troops Reveals New Circumstances

The consequences of the Chernobyl explosion are close to a dirty bomb explosion

The issue of the possibility of Ukraine, which renounced nuclear missile weapons as part of the Budapest Memorandum, creating a dirty bomb has been repeatedly considered by various experts. Most of them agreed that it is impossible for a number of reasons.

First, for political reasons: Western allies will not give the unpredictable government in Kiev such a bargaining chip. Second, Ukraine does not have the appropriate technical capabilities, no centrifuge capacity for uranium enrichment, and no suitable means of delivery. Some experts do not agree with the latter assertion, because a large amount of equipment and specialists capable of creating such means has been preserved since the Soviet Union days.

Ukraine currently holds a large amount of spent nuclear fuel that has not been removed from the territory of Ukraine since 2020 and that has been stored on the territory of nuclear power plants awaiting the construction of a nuclear fuel storage facility in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

In addition, the Kiev regime had accumulated 30 tons of plutonium and 40 tons of enriched uranium at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant. This was reported by Wall Street Journal journalist Lawrence Norman, citing IAEA Director General Raphael Grossi. The head of the international nuclear watchdog agency noted that although the nuclear power plant is under Russian control, it is run by Ukrainian reactors. That is why the IAEA needs to urgently send its experts to assess the situation and find out whether there are stocks of uranium and plutonium missing (alas, earlier Kiev has lost Javelins, bulletproof vests, etc.).

Laurence Norman’s post

In response, Ukraine’s Energoatom announced the IAEA head’s words as a fake and tried to explain that plutonium and enriched uranium are only in fuel assemblies (tubes) at nuclear power plants, while spent nuclear fuel is present at every nuclear power plant.

“This is a sly thing. If the state has sufficient competence to dismantle fuel assemblies, the spent nuclear fuel can be used to make weapon-grade isotopes. And for sure, in order to fill a missile warhead with it, a subversive charge, to arrange a dirty bomb, when the territory is contaminated without a nuclear explosion. And the activity of such a bomb will be higher than that of a cobalt bomb by one and a half times,” said the expert.

“Let’s take the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran as an example – the whole Western world demanded from Russia to close the project at first, and then they agreed – Russia takes the spent nuclear fuel so that Iranians would not accidentally start using it illegally for weapons-military purposes. For some reason it was scary in Iran, it was a stumbling block, but with Ukraine it is not frightening”.

As for the creation of delivery vehicles, nothing is impossible. The legendary Yuzhmash plant of the past is really going through a period of total decay today, while, remember, for many decades it has produced a fairly wide range of products for the space industry, including fuel modules. In other words, both the documentation and some of the production facilities that make it possible to assemble a hull of especially durable metals, where a load of spent nuclear fuel could be placed, are likely to have remained in place.
Nor would it have been a matter of delivery vehicles. If the Neptun missiles of their own production failed, the allies are full of their own much more powerful and long-range counterparts. Arms deliveries to Ukraine did not open with the start of the Russian special operation. And there have been serious discussions about supplying Kiev with heavy weapons.

In conclusion, the threat of Kiev creating a dirty bomb is serious. This is confirmed, albeit indirectly, by statements by experts, journalists around the world, and Russian officials. Despite the revelation that a large amount of spent nuclear fuel is stored at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, no one knows reliably how much is stored at other nuclear power plants. We can only hope for the remnants of the adequacy of the Ukrainian government. Otherwise, it could do irreparable harm not only to Russia and Belarus, but also to their neighbours.

The main point is that nuclear weapons work and the ecosystem recovers if used sparingly. Russia should be quite clear that it will use nuclear weapons if necessary in battlefield and war situations where it would prevent excesses loss of life on their side – the Hiroshima argument! Ukraine would be surrendering now if certain cities had been flattened with nuclear weapons. It worked in Japan!

Fortunatelly Russia doesn’t carry itself around with those values.

That’s terrible Man, to kill such a huge amount of women, children, elderly, innocent people and completely destroy one city in order to avoid loss of life..

Still I can understand your argument but such brutal ways will never achieve true peace

RealityOfWar

Japan is the biggest friend of the US! So the one example we have (small data set accepted) is that nuclear weapons bring nations closer together after use. NATO strategy when the numbers were the other way around in the cold war, had a strategy to use nuclear weapons against those numbers. The strategy is therefore accepted by the west. But there is a better way – MEM – make Europe Muslim. If the West won’t back down then follow the example of the excellent Chechen fighters and prepare and flood Ukraine with people who would love the space and food stocks Ukraine has to offer and that link up with their European brethren eventually. Many Muslims have a huge grudge against NATO who killed rapped and tortured their people! Ukraine took part in that! Reparations in nice women and land are in order for them!

Joaquin

Japan is a vassal to the US, without self-determination. And from what I can tell (from outside) people have lost self-esteem due to this.

I think it’s valid to use them (nuclear weapons) to deter the enemies from attacking, as a guarantor of peace, but never use them against cities. That destroys one’s self from the inside (like the US), since you are destroying the most precious things in life

Ed Theman

Good point, I noticed the same thing in Germany. Germany is also a vassal to USA and the people in Germany have no self-esteem and are a sad bunch of pathetic people.

Just talk to any German and you will see how said and demoralized they are after the reeducation that the allies put them through after ww2.

Joaquin

I was there and saw It first hand, it’s terrible. They can’t even imagine about questioning the narrative, even in their minds

Pamfil Military Academy

Entire EU is vassalized and colonized, either directly by embassy of JUSA (and/or CIA hijacked national intel) or by politico-economic ‘sympathy’ phenomenon.

RealityOfWar

It doesn’t matter, Japan now celebrates it was nuked and the young Japanese accept it. It’s irrelevant how much of a vassal or how hollow their people are to worship the vaporising of their ancestors. The key point is US has no problems with them. So Nuclear weapons can create conditions to remove threats and pacify people – the facts are there to see. Yes of course small nukes can be useful on the battlefield. However at the end of the day – surrender or your cities go, is a pretty powerful narrative!

Aunt Polly

The power of bullies are of limited value. The always need to watch their back.

Aunt Polly

Stockholm-syndrome. We have the same problem in Norway. Had it since the Napoleonic wars.

Michel LeBlanc

The hiroshima argument is a blantant lie from the truman administration.

It was to stop japan from capitulating after the defeat of their million man army in manchuria, at the hands of the USSR.

RealityOfWar

It’s not whether it’s a lie or not that is important. The important thing is the West accept that the use of nuclear weapons to force surrender is acceptable. Of course we know that is modified by the Rothchild mantra – only my son’s decide who makes war which basically creates the dual standards we see today – Only the west has rights to conduct wars and military operations!

Aunt Polly

Japan had already surrendered – so that’s not why it happened. It was a signal to the rest of the world, to submit to the “new order”.

Vlad the Imposter

No it didn’t “work in Japan” japan kept on fighting and they saw no difference between being fire bombed by a thousand planes and a nuke dropped by a single plane. Casualties in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki were less than the fire bombing of Tokyo.

What got them to finally unconditionally surrender was the loss of the Kwantung army and Russian marines taking the Kuril Islands. Japan signed the surrender on Sept 2 1945 … the day the Russians got complete control over the Kuril Islands.

Fake

This was the point of the Russians first few days of the SMO. That’s why they ran in fast and left fast. They needed to look at Chernobyl, Zaporozhye and a few other places to make sure the Ukrainians weren’t building or hiding a nuke using the radiation cover of the power plants. I’m sure the Russians probably looked into a few bio labs on their way in also. The first few days were a feint and fix from the Army’s perspective but the Spec Ops teams went in behind them to clear any Ukrainian surprises that might be waiting. Plus if you look at the panic that gripped the West and the MSM the first few days were a huge success. The MSM blew all its powder at once with fake news and now the Ukrainian “story” is old news. Russia has had a very good plan so far and the West’s response has been confused at best. If the West wanted a war in Ukraine so that they could look like a bunch of amateurs then they must be morons.

Oh and by the way the only reason Zelensky is in Poland is so the CIA doesn’t take him out with a cruise missile and blame the Russians for it. The Russians are probably the only ones that would let that guy live. He knows way too much about the dirty dealings in that country no way are him and his family going to live long after this is over.

RealityOfWar

What happened at the beginning of the special operation is not clear to anyone, your explanation can be as good as any other. The reality, Russia won’t say for another 20 years, but who cares it’s on with a film on Russian TV while the Special operation steadily wipes out Ukrainian Nazis to complete a very focussed goal and objective territorially.

This article bears a remarkable resemblance to another that appeared in the Russian press not long after the Russian SMO began. RIA Novosti I think, might have been Izvestiya.

A dirty bomb is spent fuel rods atomized by a detonation device. Very destructive area denial weapon. 100kg will contaminate an area larger than Kiev for the lifespan of the species.

DIRTY BOMB SIMULATION OUTSIDE LANGLEY

I was involved in a dirty bomb simulation outside Langley. In the simulation spent fuel rods were stolen locally and set on fire in a parking lot using a diesel fertilizer bomb in a truck. The dead zone was greater than 60 km where 50% of the population would be dead in 30 days and 90% in a year.

Bio-weapons DNA engineered rus-haplo specific and nuclear ones concocted by the anglo-zionist filth called CIA would be placed in Russia and would create chaos and instability, just what the sorosist circle of satanists would wanted for Russia to install an Eltin-like puppet regime and deplete it from all resources.
