The use of chemical weapons by Russia in Ukraine will have dubious effectiveness.

This opinion was expressed by former SBU employee and expert of the Ukrainian Future Institute Ivan Stupak, noting that weapons of this type can be used effectively only in countries with a dry climate, as was the case in Syria, Channel 24 reports.

“After nuclear weapons, what are you going to scare us with? Some gas, some substance that dissolves in the air, that is carried by the wind here and there and can be carried to Russian positions?” Stupak noted.

According to him, chemical weapons are weapons of mass destruction when there is a large concentration of people in a specific area, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are stretched by a huge front. Russians should not hope for the effectiveness and efficiency of such weapons, Stupak added.

Threat of use of chemical weapons by Russia

It was previously reported that the administration of US President Joe Biden warned that if the situation worsens for Russia on the front, Putin may first use chemical weapons before resorting to a nuclear confrontation with NATO.

“But in the event of continued casualties on the battlefield or the complete disintegration of the Russian army, some senior officials working on the issue have concluded that Moscow could resort to the use of chemical weapons – including those that the country has linked to use in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny,” wrote Politico.
