Ukraine War Day #447: A Second Chernobyl In Khmelnitsky?

Dear Readers:

Today I have this rather scary piece, the reporter is Darya Volkova. Over the past weekend Russian aviation struck a weapons depot in the Western Ukrainian city of Khmelnitsky. The result was a radioactive mushroom cloud soaring over the region.

A mushroom cloud rises over the city of Khmelnitsky

The Russians accuse the Ukrainians of “improperly storing” depleted uranium shells. Currently the extent of the damage, is being studied. Reporter Darya sought out the expertise of Alexei Anpilogov, who specializes in atomic energy. Here is what he had to say:

“According to objective data from monitoring [of radiation levels], in the entire region of Khmelnitsky, from the moment of the explosion, there was a significant rise in radiation levels. The rise was such that it cannot be explained away by natural causes, such as solar flares. Even though uranium itself is a rather refractory metal, but when it is heated up to the point that it would be, in such a [kinetic] strike, then it starts to burn very quickly.

“It is likely that the uranium was not stored properly. More than likely, this was a field depot. Common standards dictate that this type of ammunition should be stored separately from powder-based shells. If this protocol was not followed, then it would explain how a certain amount of powder would exceed the temperature required for detonation, and thus enable the process of burning.

Alexei Anpilogov: Stay indoors and wipe down your rooms.

“If we proceed from that hypothetical scenario, then the main consequence [of this strike] could be the contamination of a very large circumference of surrounding territory. The dust that forms from such a burning, would very easily rise up into the air, would be dispersed and settle down. I would advise the local population to stay indoors, to shut their windows and doors, and also wipe down their rooms for dust. Otherwise, we are going to see a whole bouquet of oncological diseases, issues with the human reproductive system, and such things.

“We also need to look at wind currents. Burning dust tends to fall into a layer of cumulus clouds, where it can remain for quite a long time, then gradually fall to earth, along with the precipitation. I would postulate that the areas which will suffer the most are the nearby regions in Western Ukraine and also some areas in Poland and Romania.

“As for the magnitude of the fire, it can be compared to that of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. That fire was very intensive, and entailed a large quantity of burning substances. Therefore the possible zone of contagion might also be compared with that of Chernobyl.

“Without question, the responsibility for these results lies on the authorities in Ukraine, and on those governments which supplied them with depleted uranium weapons. Now the appropriate Ukrainian agencies and services must continue to monitor the situation, they must take all possible measures to protect the population of those areas. Whether they will do this, or will just declare this to be a so-called zone of military secrets, that’s an open question.”

Radiation Levels Go Up

The Ukrainian portal SaveEcoBot constantly monitors radiation levels through Ukraine.

SaveEcoBot monitors radiation levels through Ukriane and the region.

They noted that on Friday May 12, the radiation levels in the Khmelnitsky Oblast jumped up from [normal levels of] 80-100 nanosieverts to 140-160. Other clues that something was amiss: Ukrainian on-the-ground sources reported that “Radiation Patrols” had been noticed in Khmelnitsky. These are military units who carry geiger counters and walk around, measuring levels of radiation.

The fires of hell….

As other news and videos trickled in, it was reported that the Russian strike hit an electronics factory called Kation, where the Ukrainian army had been storing some shells. There is speculation that this might be the sight where the Ukrainians were storing depleted uranium shells donated to them by Great Britain.

Back to Anpilogov. Who points out that the United States used depleted uranium shells in their wars in Yugoslavia and Iraq. After which, local residents and American soldiers alike, contracted radiation sickness.

The Russians believe that, towards the end of April, Great Britain sent Ukraine the depleted uranium shells to be used side by side with their Challenger 2 tanks. [The depleted uranium shell is mainly an anti-tank weapon.] Some of this information had been revealed, in the course of Parliamentary inquiry, by British Defense Minister James Heappey. [yalensis: Whose name, in Russian, is spelled Хиппи which transliterates to “Hippy”, which is belied by the man’s greasy mobster face and personality.]

When grilled by Scottish Deputy Kenny MacAskill, Heappey just waved off taking any responsibility about the uranium explosion. Saying blithely that London doesn’t track what happens after the fact and has no obligations to help clean up the consequences of any catastrophes that might ensue.

The Russians beg to disagree. According to Putin’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, the Brits are directly responsible for the consequences of supplying depleted uranium to the Ukrainian army.

  1. Arnould says:

    I am astonished by the conclusions of the press and blogs. I am no specialist about depleted uranium shells, but I have my explanation about why these things are dangerous. They are scarier than a little bit radioactivity.

    I had understood that these things are named “depleted uranium” shells because they are made with a by-product of the manufacturing of nuclear fuel for civilian use. They are made with one of the heaviest metal on earth which in addition begins to burn at high temperature after the impact. Thus they penetrate all types of armors but no risk of radioactivity.

    Their real risk is that they are made of this heavy metal which coming down in the form of dust penetrates in all living cells, plants, animals, humans. Once in the organisms they stay there, they are not eliminated similar to other heavy metals, and they induce cancers and ill-formed babies (do you remember Minamata in Japan, the heavy metal was mercury ?)

    So again no radioactivity, but long term very heavy diseases due uranium absorbed into bodies but not eliminated.

    And why is this is blurred and not very well known ? Because the American army tried to deny the problem which happened with their own soldiers Desert Storm in Iraq 1992 where they used these DU shells against Iraqi armed vehicles. The reason was to try to not pay compensations to soldiers who got sick only many months/years after the war. I don’t know if they got something by now.

    I wrote all of this by memory only, I may be completely wrong, but this is what I had understood during the last 30 years.


    • michaeldroy says:

      Pretty sure that this is correct – it is the cancer from dust that does the damage, and above a certain temperature it burns.


    • Arnould says:

      When we write “it burns” : it makes an oxyde with oxygen in the air, of course uranium is still present in all the dust that falls down after burning.


    • yalensis says:

      This is very worrisome. Does anyone know, is there a chelation method that can remove these metals from the body?
      I was reading in today’s Russian press that many Ukrainian families in these areas are rushing to the apothecary to purchase iodine tablets for their children. But maybe iodine isn’t the right thing for this type of metal? Not sure.


    • JMF says:

      Arnould: DU definitely emits radiation. Though it’s only about half as radioactive as natural uranium, it’s still harmful. (See my Busby article below.)


      • Arnould says:

        @JMF Thank you, this is even scarier than I thought ! We should punish the Brits for this, but how ?

        I think the biggest catastrophy of the last 1000 years happened on Oct. 14 1066 when the Normans (coming from France) won the Hastings battle.


  2. Liborio Guaso says:

    Nobody can believe that the West is concerned about what happens far from its borders and taking into account the recent experience of the use of radioactive missiles against Muslims in the Middle East, the centuries-long radioactive contamination of Russian and Ukrainian territories may be the price to pay by Russia in retaliation for not allowing itself to be colonized.


  3. S Brennan says:

    Agree with Arnould on: “the American army tried to deny the problem which happened with their own soldiers Desert Storm in Iraq 1992 where they used these DU shells against Iraqi armed vehicles. The reason was to try to not pay compensations to soldiers who got sick”

    And you’d think the Polish government would be pretty pissed, well, in private anyway as they planned to annex this part of Ukrainia for Poland. Just like the English to poison a table scrap they tossed to their pet hyena…I am sure the dinner guests will be greatly amused as they watch the animal writhe in agony. The sociopathic cruelty of DC/London’s financial interests knows no bounds. Look at Dianne Feinstein, 87-years-old, in command of nearly a billion in assets, almost dead from sepsis and still trying to claw for more money…sociopaths one and all.

    thanks yalensis… still popping by and reading your informative articles…


  6. JMF says:

    There seems to be a lot of confusion and misinformation about DU. So from my archives — back-searched to sources — here’s a couple valuable links:

    Chris Busby: Europe May Face Cancer, Birth Defects Akin to Fallujah if Kiev Uses Depleted Uranium

    … DU is a by-product of the enrichment process. It is considered to be less radioactive than natural uranium. But still, even in its weakened form, this substance is very radioactive, the scientist stressed. But that is not all:

    “The most important thing about it is that uranium for a long time has been known to bind very strongly to DNA,” explained Busby. “Now, DNA is the target for all radiation effects. If you’re looking at the reason radiation causes genetic damage and cancer, it’s been well-accepted since the Fifties, since the discovery of DNA in 1952, that the DNA is the target for all the genetic effects. Uranium binds to it very strongly, as it has a strong chemical affinity for DNA. This fact has been known for a very long time (…) Now, if uranium is radioactive and it attacks the chromosomes, clearly it’s going to be much more dangerous than some kind of neutral substance that you drink and then goes out of your body. It’s a calcium seeker and it binds to DNA. So that’s the first thing.”

    The second risk associated with the use of depleted uranium was revealed by the physical chemist and reported to the Depleted Uranium Oversight Board in 2004. At that time Busby drew attention to the fact that uranium acts as a sort of amplifier for normal radiation because it has a very high atomic number.

    “We all live in an environment where we get gamma rays that come through our body and go out,” he said. “And of course, that they’re not good and they have an effect. But if you’ve got uranium inside you, then it intercepts this because of its high atomic number and all its electrons. And when it gets hit by a gamma ray, it shoots off a load of electrons and this is called the photoelectric effect (…) All studies that have been done of people exposed to uranium showed massive chromosome damage. So when they look to see the chromosomes in their cells, in the peripheral blood cells, they find massive amounts of chromosome damage that leads to genetic effects – cancer, birth defects and so forth. So that’s the reason uranium is so dangerous.”

    The reason DU penetrated the body so easily and spread in the environment was that when munitions explode, the uranium burns at a very high temperature, producing particles so small that they’re effectively a gas, Busby says.

    “They don’t behave as a metal particle, they behave like a gas and they are totally volatile and float all over the place. They contaminate over distance. In 2003, we looked at the first Gulf War effects and we looked at filters in the United Kingdom, measuring uranium, and we showed that they came from Iraq all the way to England,” said the scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk. …

    Briefing by Chief of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Protection Troops of Russian Armed Forces Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov on consequences of West nations’ supplying Kiev-regime with depleted uranium ammunition

    Also, LentaFeed (a site I’m unfamiliar with) is currently reporting a spike in Bismuth (DU decay product) in Poland, complete with graph:

    Radiation spikes were detected in the east of Poland. Yesterday in Lublin, measuring instruments recorded a sharp increase in the level of bismuth by 6-7 times. Bismuth is a decay product of depleted uranium used in ammunition. In the comments, the Poles write that the radiation threat came from the Khmelnitsky region, where the 649th aviation depot was destroyed by a geranium strike on the morning of May 14. Link to the Lublin control station can be found here. It should be noted, that the wind in Lublin was blowing from the direction of Khmelnitsky over the last few days. This radiation cloud will then proceed further in the direction of Berlin. Thus, British depleted uranium now returns to Europe in the form of radioactively contaminated dust.

    Yes, this is definitely nasty. Oh, what the Brits have wrought!


    • yalensis says:

      Oh, this is just perfect. I can only repeat the advice that article gave to people in those areas: Stay indoors [as if that’s possible all the time], shut your doors and windows [no window A/C allowed either, so just hope it doesn’t get too hot]. Wipe down all your surfaces with wet rags, to clean up the dust. [That’s actually really good advice, the only one good thing about covid, I always thought, was that it taught people to be better housekeepers.]

      I’m not really joking around too much, I actually care. I think people in those areas should probably whip out their covid masks and wear them as much as they can, so as not to breathe in the dust. People are reporting now that the wind streams are carrying this contaminated dust westward, into parts of Poland. I don’t experience any glee or Schadenfreude, I just think about the kids. It might be better for people to not even have kids for a while. Or if they do, have them genetically tested pre-natal, if possible.


      • Yes, it’s a total tragedy. To use depleted uranium shells is sheer stupidity and madness as it makes such vast areas radioactive for hundreds of years, and will infect people indiscriminately on both sides of the war, along with soldiers on either side. I really hate the British and American military leadership for this: it shows what complete assholes they truly are. They know what DU shells do, spreading cancer far and wide. For the Brits, if they can’t defeat the Russians, being the sore losers they truly are, they will destroy east (and west!) Ukraine with DU munitions to make the land a festering cancer region for many generations 😦 Truly horrible, evil people the British. And Americans.


  7. Beluga says:

    Depleted uranium is nasty stuff. Doesn’t take much of a web search to find out the gory details. The Serbs are dealing with what the US gifted them, as are the Iraqis. Basically, deformed babies. Brought to you by America! Land of the free and home of the corrupt. The gift that keeps on giving, but mostly taking.

    Here’s the thing I can’t fathom. From your post above, you say: “They noted that on Friday May 12, the radiation levels in the Khmelnitsky Oblast jumped up from [normal levels of] 80-100 nanosieverts to 140-160.”

    The Russian attack was on early Saturday, May 13. So what were the Ukrainian radiation inspectors monitoring on the twelfth, the day before the Russian attack? Other observers have noted this date inconsistency in all the narratives. Was it because of some other dumb and stupid Ukie mistake in handling the DU shells?

    Meanwhile, the more recent attack on Kiev allowed the Ukies to claim they shot down at least three dozen of the 18 missiles Russia sent their way, including 9 Kinzhals. To achieve this, they set off over 30 Patriot AD missiles in random Halloween / Guy Fawkes fashion at $5.25 million each. You’ve likely seen the twitter videos of this fireworks show. And if they did actually hit a Kinzhal, well, I’m a monkey’s uncle. The Patriot hasn’t been able to hit the broad side of a barn door for over three decades — couldn’t even down Iraqi Scuds, the Mark One version of the Iskander and directly related to the German V2 of eighty years ago. It’s why Israel developed their own Iron Dome AD. So it strains my credulity that Patriots shot down nine Kinzhals. One of which, by the way, the Russian MOD claims took out the very Patriot battery that all the Twitter videos show blasting US taxpayer money into the sky in rich and undirected profusion. After the battery had shot its load, unfortunately.

    Bakhmut is taken, Zelensky is on European vacation rattling his tin cup and only managing to persuade the Germans to fill it, the fools, and the Ukie counteroffensive seems to be a damp squib. The SMO moves on. Ukraine is but a husk of its former self and has only its “leaders” to blame.


    • JMF says:

      Beluga: There was quite a lengthy discussion of this on MOA. b himself noted that discrepancy. The quite plausible explanation seems to be that the early gamma spike was actually due to the *arrival* of the DU munitions, rather than the later explosion:

      Ukraine SitRep: Explosion in Khmelnytsky – Bakhmut Evacuation – Longer Range Missiles

      I’d very much like to see a current continuation of that graph, but haven’t yet been able to locate one.


    • yalensis says:

      Thanks, Beluga,
      I was just mindlessly translating from my source, and didn’t notice that date discrepancy myself. Just now I went back in and double-checked my translation. The Russian sentence:

      с пятницы, 12 мая, в районе Хмельницкого наблюдается скачок уровня радиации с 80-100 нанозивертов до 140-160 нанозивертов.

      Instead of translating as “on Friday”, I probably should have translated as “since Friday” (the Russian preposition с is a big vaguer than “on”, it means something like “starting on Friday” or “since Friday”. Hence there is some wiggle room for ambiguity there. Possibly the monitorings are not done every single day? (although they are done by robots, so I would imagine they are hourly, if not daily, but I am not sure about that).
      More than likely, though, the rise in levels did probably start some time on Friday, so I have no explanation for that, although I see from the other comments that people have looked into this.
      Possibly the Russians saw that the DU had been moved into the area and decided to attack them? If that was the case, that attack may have been irresponsible (I mean, if they clearly knew what they were attacking), but honestly I don’t know what else the Russians could have done. Tried to talk the Ukrainians into removing the DU and send it back to Old Blighty?


  8. Congratulations to your smart commentariat, Yalensis, because they pointed out that the biggest problem with the (possible) depleted uranium warheads isn’t the radioactive ions zapping off it; it’s the fact that DU is a toxic heavy metal. Like if you ingested too much lead or something — poisoning, but not irradiation. “B” at Moon of Alabama had a good explainer about that aspect. He also made the point that the radiation “spike” was before the blast, and that radiation levels there have fluctuated within the same range pre- and post-Kinzhaling. So if you want to worry as you do, fret about the right stuff!

    DU WILL grill people from the inside out if they breathe in particles that have vapourised during the explosion. Hence the cancer rates in Serbia, Iraq and the other places where Amerika has dropped dirty bombs. Who are the terrrrrrrrrrrists again?

    At least heavy metals can’t drift on the air too far (unlike Covid). I’d be curious about what happens if humans eat plants/animals that have somehow incorporated the DU into their structure. Like cows chomping grass that was dusted with DU. Should be interesting to see if radiation monitoring will be done on Ukrainian wheat in the future, to see if it gooses the Geiger counters. Will the European Union bother testing at all, though? Wouldn’t want to throw any shade on the Ukie monster they made. Maybe all that grain that was SUPPOSED to go to hungry African countries last year, but instead found its way to Europe (undercutting Polish farmers) will wind up in Africa in the future.

    Not related to the DU issue, but to extend upon something Beluga wrote, because it irritates me (not Beluga — the propaganda I’m gonna complain about): Today the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) 7 a.m. radio news bulletin had (among many other items) a short bit about how Ukraine claimed to have shot down SIX Kinzhal missiles yesterday! It also mentioned that the Ukrainians have said they shot down another Kinzhal previously.

    I listen to the 0700 broadcast because I always get up early, and it’s slightly longer than the other top-of-the-hour alerts. Gives me an idea what the media perception managers want us sheep to think that day. The 6 Kinzhal thing was a throw-away item, not a major focus of the bulletin, but ABC usually has a Ukraine-related thing each day. This is a tiny thing in a minor medium (radio) that’s not listened to by a whole lot of people, in a country far, far away from most of humanity. (That last bit is one of the reasons I like it here.)

    The reason I fuss is because it’s SO bogus. Even the Ukes concede they didn’t shoot down the earlier Kinzhal. The laws of physics say it’s basically impossible to hit something coming down at Mach 8, surrounded by a plasma cloud of burning atmosphere. Too fast, too hot, too hard for humans to react in time to get something into the Kinzhal’s path. Now, 6 hits in one day?!? A non-expert punter like me can figure this out.

    As a former news reporter, I wonder again — do people with jobs in the media have NO pride? No common sense? Editors at broadcast planning meetings have to decide “Do we report THIS item, or THAT?” They have to count every second, when it comes to what they cram into a 5-minute news hole. Writers have to formulate the information into sentences that appear on the news reader’s screen. (I’m sure it’s not typed on paper any more, like it was in my day.) The announcer then has to speak the lines with a straight face, although I’m sure that’s no moral problem, because they talk about what they’re ordered to without much thought. The whole operation bleats a ludicrous line of propaganda that’s been sharted out by the Ukrainian authorities. They got USED. Again, because crap like that happens all the time. I’d be irritated if someone was pwn’ing me repeatedly, expecting me to embellish their bullshit.

    To paraphrase the old saying: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you again. Fool me three times — stop fooling me! Because I can’t stop myself from being a fool.”


    • yalensis says:

      Bukko, we had talked before about the important “dual universes” theory. In the universe where Mr. Spock wears a goatee, the Ukrainian servicemen flawless operated the Patriot system and seamlessly shot down a whole array of supersonic Russian missiles. And then marched off to the cafeteria for a well-deserved lunch.

      Meanwhile, in the other universe: The Ukrainian operators decided to put on a very expensive fireworks show for their sponsors. Shooting blindly in many random directions, like Doc Holliday at the OK corral. Once they were done, the kinzhal zoomed in on the Patriot complex itself and it all went poof.

      Having said that… from the POV of quantum theory, there is always that 1 in a [very large number] chance that shooting blindly in all directions out of your revolver, you might just strike the bullet emitting from your opponent’s revolver? It could happen, in a quantum universe.


  9. And just to sputter a little bit further! For the gits ‘n shiggles (think about it lysdexically for a second) I clicked on that pro-Ukie military correspondent again today. He had several Twaats about the reported interceptions. I was on a library computer then, fast connection, no limits on bandwidth (one of the hotspots I go to cuts me off after 500 KB in a day) so I clicked on them. Reply after reply Twaat going “woo-hoo for the Ukrainians! Take that, Putler!” These aren’t trolls, like in Utoob comments. It’s True Believers, exalting in what they perceive as an amazing victory. It’s joy, not snark.

    Again, no indication that anyone had thought about the laws of physics, past Ukielies or anything. And no counter-comments to spoil the glee. (Dissenters are typically blocked in the Twatosphere, on both sides, because I don’t see much anti-narrative on Russosphere Twatters either. Big Serge allows NAFO trolls to an extent, so he can spar with them, so he’s a mensch.)

    How can it be that people blindly accept what they are fed? This happens with Covid, lots of political topics and other things — not just singling out the war hoo-hah. I consider myself on the paranoid side. I don’t trust authority. I would feel vulnerable, like my pocket was going to get picked, if I was not suspicious of things. I’m not paralysed with phobia, but I offer my belief only with care. It must be nice to live in the world of these Believers, where things are going great, no need for anxiety. But dod-Gam! (think lysdexic) How do these people have anything left in their bank accounts? Haven’t they spent it all on the glorious products promised by sellers of Magic Beans? If I ever get tempted to sell time-shares in hurricane zones in Florida, I’ll know where to look for suckers…

    At least heavy metals can’t drift on the air too far

    Do check out Dr. Busby’s article I posted. Even my brief excerpt reveals that that *radioactive* heavy metal floated all the way from Iraq to England during the First Gulf War.

    [Dr Chris Busby, scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk]


  11. I’ve been rather busy the last couple of weeks. I’ll read your preceding articles. For the moment let me say that DU radiation would be lethal only via ingesting or breathing in of the radioactive dust since the majority of it is in the form of alpha particles (that can be stopped by everyday clothes) with some beta (also easily stopped) and a very small proportion of gamma rays. Unlike in the Incredible Hulk comics, gamma rays are murderous, but in this case you’d get cancers showing up only after the dust is thoroughly introduced into the ecosystem.

    I read that the Khmelnitsky and surrounding population is in panic mode. If they are, I have zero sympathy for them. These West Ukraine heartland Banderastanis would’ve cheered for the irradiation of Russian civilians. Let’s see how they like it now.


    • S Brennan says:

      Agree on the inhalation/ingestion of the vaporized DU being the key, >>with inhalation being far worse << Our lungs cannot expel particles with the efficiency of our digestion systems defense of vomiting and diarrhea.

      That being the case defending against inhalation should be the primary focus.

      All dusting in a house/apartment should be done with very damp towels thrown directly in the washer [or kept damp until a washer is available], no vacuuming or dusting wands. If water is plentiful, a water-wash-down of the house and yard is advisable.

      Like the clueless English twit who heads Britain's DoD I was, as a common soldier, also ignorant to the threat of vaporizing the stuff through a high intensity depot explosion.

      As I said above in reference to Poland's plan to annex western Ukrainia at war's end; "Just like the English to poison a table scrap they tossed to their pet hyena…I am sure all the dinner guests will be greatly amused as they watch the animal writhe in agony".


      • yalensis says:

        People should probably wear medical-grade respirators, if they have them. Or maybe just leave the area, if they can.
        I asked before, maybe nobody knows, if there is any chelation method that can cleanse this heavy metal from the body, like they do with lead.
        At the place where I work, being in the inner city, we still see a lot of cases of lead poisoning. Something called “chelation” is used as a procedure, and I have absolutely no idea how that works.

        Lead poisoning of the children of the poor is one of the dirty secrets of American history. It’s not as bad now as it was a generation or two ago (in terms of ghetto children eating lead paint and that sort of thing), but is still a major problem in some neighborhoods. Kids are dumb and they will put anything in their mouths. There was some effort to clean up lead contamination in homes and apartment buildings, but the problem is still there in some of the older buildings. Along with asbestos, but that’s a separate issue.


  12. JMF says:

    Well, no wonder I couldn’t find any further radiological data graphing! According to Dr. Busby’s latest, the monitoring info was shut down shortly after the first results were released; a major cover-up, he thinks:

    Ukraine’s Depleted Uranium Blast: Europe on Brink of ‘Environmental Disaster’>/b>


    • yalensis says:

      You know what’s interesting, though? A couple of days ago Alexander Mercouris himself, on his show, did a 180 about-turn, said there was no depleted uranium, that the levels recorded were perfectly normal, and even apologized to his viewers for saying there was!

      I don’t know what’s going on there. I don’t really believe Alex, but I hope he is right. I would much rather know (or believe) that everything is okay out there, and people in that part of the world not getting zapped, or future babies born without arms… who wants those sad things? nobody.
