Russia is suspected of planning a false flag chemical weapons attack in Ukraine, that it will blame on the West. Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, the chief of Vladimir Putin’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Forces, has voiced concerns that the US and its allies are plotting a chemical strike. He claims that former US ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, had warned Russia intended to use chemical weapons. Kirillov suggested that chemicals were delivered by train to Kramatorsk, with foreign citizens accompanying them. The substances were allegedly placed at the Kramatorsk Metallurgical Plant in the Donetsk region of Ukraine, leading some to accuse Putin’s forces of yet another provocation.
