The (even more) catastrophic situation of Russia’s nuclear attack has been in fear since the start of the war in Ukraine. This Tuesday, March 22, a Kremlin spokesman said that Russia would use nuclear weapons in Ukraine only if there was a “threat to its existence,” but world leaders were preparing. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has announced that the coalition will provide Ukraine with defense equipment against chemical, biological and nuclear threats, and will defend its forces stationed in the East against this threat.
During a nuclear attack, how can people be protected? In the United States, the New York Times reveals that Joe Biden asked a team to create scenes to react to a chemical or nuclear attack launched by Russia. According to the American Daily, the group meets three times a week to establish the most appropriate response from the United States and its allies. It also acts as a possible response to Russia’s attack on a NATO territory or a country in Eastern Europe (for example, Moldova or Georgia). These views will be discussed during the NATO summit in Brussels this Thursday.
The Belgian National Crisis Center notes on its website that some citizens have recently visited pharmacies to ask for iodine pills. “The situation in Ukraine is being closely monitored by the Belgian and European authorities, especially the Federal Agency for Nuclear Regulation (AFCN).” Crisis Center promises. “This situation does not currently pose any danger to the health of Belgian citizens. The presence of stable iodine tablets in this environment is not particularly worrying about the potential emission of radioactive iodine from nuclear power plants. ‘No longer operational, such as the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.”
