SF: Ukraine was secretly growing nuclear weapons and it was near acquiring them, Russian media reported on March 6 citing a supply with information of the state of affairs in Russian safety constructions. From VT:
Ukraine requested NATO for air cowl when Russia selected to assault Ukraine’s nuclear weapons facility in Kharkiv. There, Israeli scientists, working with former Soviet nuclear scientists despatched from the US and bolstered by vital stockpiles of polonium and different supplies despatched from the US, Ukraine has been constructing new hybrid “soiled bombs” and was almost prepared to check.
Russian troops used GRAD missiles to shell Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Know-how with a nuclear facility inside. It has 37 lively nuclear components. Its injury will result in an ecological nuclear disaster. The one option to cease that is to #closethesky over Ukraine pic.twitter.com/8mUWBI7gkO

The scientific neighborhood of Ukraine has enough competencies to create a tool each “implosive” and “cannon” sort,” the supply stated.
The supply famous that Ukraine might additionally covertly purchase expertise from the West for centrifuge enrichment of uranium and laser isotope separation.
Plutonium of the required high quality was reportedly obtained from overseas states.
“In keeping with obtainable data, the USA has already transferred this materials to its companions. There may be purpose to consider that within the “Ukrainian case” it was not with out the participation of Washington,” the supply stated.
In keeping with the supply, the important thing function within the creation of a nuclear explosive machine was assigned to the Nationwide Scientific Middle “Kharkov Institute of Physics and Know-how”.
