After Putin's announcement: EU supplies Ukraine with equipment for nuclear case

Russian President Putin wants to transfer nuclear-capable missiles to Belarus. The EU reacted promptly to this announcement and sent equipment to Ukraine "tailored to chemical, biological or nuclear emergencies".

The EU Commission wants to send special equipment to Ukraine in preparation for a possible Russian attack with weapons of mass destruction. "Medical equipment and equipment tailored to chemical, biological or nuclear emergencies are on their way to Ukraine," EU Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic said in Brussels. Russia's President Vladimir Putin recently announced that the intention was to transfer Iskander-type ground-launched missiles to Belarus, which can also be equipped with nuclear-capable warheads.

According to the Commission, the delivery to Ukraine, worth 11.3 million euros, includes 300,000 special protective suits, 5,600 liters of decontamination agent and 850 devices for decontamination measures. For medical care, the EU provides patient monitors, infusion pumps and ventilators.

"Hospitals and medical professionals in Ukraine work under constant fire. We must do everything in our power to provide them with the necessary tools to save lives," Lenarcic said. The money for the aid comes from the EU Commission's emergency stockpiles, which are stored in Romania, Hungary, Sweden, Germany, Greece and Denmark.

Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko met with Putin again on Saturday. The Kremlin chief announced the delivery of Iskander-M missile systems to Belarus, which can also be equipped with nuclear warheads. According to the latest information from Kyiv, Russian troops recently also attacked Ukraine from Belarus. The country is a close ally of Russia.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the people of Belarus not to be drawn into the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine. "The Kremlin has already decided everything for you," he said in his evening video address on Sunday with a view of Moscow. "But you are not slaves and cannon fodder. You must not die." People should not let others decide for Belarus. "I know that the people of Belarus support us, only us, not the war. And that's why the Russian leadership wants to drag them into a war," said Zelenskyy.
