Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told his French counterpart in a telephone call on Sunday that the situation in Ukraine was rapidly deteriorating and trending towards "uncontrolled escalation."
In a phone call with French Defense Minister Sebastien Lecornu published by the Russian side, Shoigu said Moscow had concerns Ukraine could use a "dirty bomb" in the conflict, without providing evidence to support the suggestion that Ukraine might use such a weapon.
"They discussed the situation in Ukraine which is rapidly deteriorating," the defense ministry said in a readout of the call. "It is trending towards further uncontrolled escalation."
Today's telephone call with the French Defense Minister comes immediately after similar calls with the US and Turkish Defense Ministers.
Russia is telling all the key parties that the situation is getting very much worse.
According to incoming information, the Kiev regime is preparing a false flag "provocation" on its territory related to the detonation of the so-called "dirty bomb" or low-yield nuclear weapon.
From various sources it became known that under the leadership of Western backers, Kiev has already begun the practical implementation of this plan. The leadership of the Eastern Mining and Processing Plant, located in the city of Zhovti Vody, Dnepropetrovsk region, as well as the Kiev Institute for Nuclear Research, was tasked with making the very "dirty bomb." Work on it is already reported to be at the final stage.
At the same time, on behalf of Volodymyr Zelensky, employees of the Office of the President of Ukraine from his close circle, are conducting covert contacts with representatives of the UK on the issue of a possible transfer of nuclear weapons components to the Kiev authorities.
The calculation of the organizers of the provocation is that if it is successfully implemented, most countries will react extremely harshly to the "nuclear incident" in Ukraine. As a result, Moscow will lose the support of many of its key partners, and the West will again try to raise the issue of depriving Russia of the status of a permanent member of the UN Security Council and increase anti-Russian rhetoric.
The idea itself, seems psychotic to most observers, but such seems to be the level of desperation in Kiev.
This is very worrying.
