WHO Warns Nations to Stock Pile Drugs to Treat Radiation Sickness
The World Health Organization (WHO) publishes a list of medicines for nations to stockpile in case of a 'radiation or nuclear emergency' as the European Union warns 'Russia is at war with the West.'
The World Health Organization (WHO) is preparing for a nuclear emergency as a result of recent threats made by Vladimir Putin. The warning was in response to the United States and its European coalition support of Ukraine's resistance to the Russian invasion and occupation by supplying over one hundred cutting-edge tanks to defend against a spring offensive. These threats were made in response to the fact that these countries have supported Ukraine's resistance to the Russian invasion and occupation. Possible scenarios include a Russian attack on Ukrainian nuclear power reactors or the use of nuclear weapons on the Ukrainian front lines.
We might be on the approach of confronting the highest danger of deploying nuclear weapons since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962 or the worst nuclear tragedy since Chernobyl in 1986.
The World Health Organization has just issued guidance on surviving a nuclear catastrophe in a newly released report today, warning against 'intentional uses of radioactive materials with malicious intent.'
On Friday, Secretary General of the European Union's European External Action Service, Stefano Sannino, said that Vladimir Putin has moved from a special military operation in Ukraine to - a war against NATO and the West.
Mr. Sannino made it clear that the EU is not looking to escalate hostilities but is just providing the Ukrainians the resources to defend (themselves) from Russia's barbaric attacks and illegal invasion.
Meanwhile, the Acting Assistant Director-General of WHO, Dr. Maria Neira, issued an international warning that many governments today are unprepared for a nuclear or radiation disaster.
The bombing of one or all of Ukraine's 15 active nuclear power plants would result in the worst nuclear crisis in human history. The use of a battlefield nuclear weapon would be the first nuclear weapon used in warfare since the end of the second world war.
On Thursday night, Russian military assets managed to occupy the Zaporizhzhia plant. In doing so, they set off a huge fire at a training center in the plant. This took till Friday to extinguish.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released a statement that assured the world that the plant was undamaged and that only one reactor is currently online and operating at approximately 60% of its capacity.
President Biden and his administration have warned that Russia may be capable of using tactical nuclear weapons in the last few months and have already spent $290 on anti-radiation drugs. Meanwhile, Ukraine and some of its neighboring countries have distributed iodine tablets.
So far, the world's financial markets are ignoring the threat at this point. This prompts the questions…
- Is Putin willing to put the 144.5 million Russian population in danger of nuclear annihilation or severe radiation poisoning over what he has told them isn't a war but a special military operation?
- Is Putin's threats a bluff intended to dissuade the United States, NATO, and the 50-nation coalition from taking the next step to arm Ukraine with F16 and MIG fighter jets that they are asking for?
- Are the financial markets ignoring a potentially growing possibility of a catastrophic nuclear event?
- Are the people in the Kremlin and the Russian military willing to allow Putin to risk killing potentially tens of millions of people, knowing he is very ill and may be dying?
- Suppose Russian missiles strike one or more of Ukraine's 15 nuclear power plants and cause deadly radiation to be released. How will the world's financial markets react?
