The explosion of a nitric acid tank in Rubizhnoye/Sergey Gaidai

Russian invaders hit a nitric acid tank during shelling in Rubizhne. This may have negative consequences for the civilian population.

After falling into the nitrogen tank, local authorities urged people to stay in the shelter, do not open windows and doors, and prepare wet bandages. After all, nitric acid is very dangerous when inhaled, swallowed and in contact with the skin.

“In terms of its consequences, this incident is similar to the use of chemical or biological weapons. This once again confirms the true intentions of the hostile side, which is to destroy not only troops and infrastructure, but also the population of our country, which does not want to live in the “Russian world”” , – David Arakhamia, head of France's “Servant of the People” in the Verkhovna Rada, wrote about this.
