Kremlin spooks are suspected of faking a “dirty bomb video” pretending it was being constructed by a Ukrainian extremist group
Russian spies have launched another “false flag” plot in a bid to trigger war with neighboring Ukraine, The Mirror can reveal.
Kremlin spooks are suspected of faking a “dirty bomb video” pretending it was being constructed by a Ukrainian extremist group.
The chilling video was broadcast on websites and pretends to show a Ukrainian bomb-maker putting the final touches to a time bomb containing radioactive material.
Wording beneath the video claims the blast will spread radioactive waste three miles from ground zero of the explosion.
The terrorist wears black latex gloves and warns Ukraine will kill thousands and poison a three-square mile area.
It was intercepted and exposed as another attempted false flag mission to spark conflict as 126,000 Russian troops gather on Ukraine’s eastern flank and over 80,000 Russian and Belarusian troops are north in Belarus.
There are heightened fears Ukraine is facing a massive invasion by Moscow’s forces.
The video is soundless and features Ukrainian wording whilst pretending to be made by the extreme right wing group National Corps party, who are not in parliament.
In chilling footage designed to stir up unrest and give Moscow an excuse to invade Ukraine the pretend terrorist lifts the lid on a black container revealing a timer and wiring connected to yellow and white plastic bags.
It is said to contain “radioactive” material.
He then unscrews the detonator and places a mobile phone with a flashing red light next to another phone primed to trigger the blast.
A caption next to a logo of the National Corps Party reads: “Remote controlled explosive device with radioactive elements.
“Zone of effect 5 km. It is devised for the partisan war. It will be used in the case of Russian army invasion in the territory of Ukraine”.
The video first appeared on the Telegram channel and has been broadcast on Russian sites.
“Dirty Bombs” are made from nuclear waste packed around a high explosive charge designed to kill many once detonated and contaminate a wide area with radiation for years.
The footage was circulated days after US intelligence intercepted another Russian-made fake in which actors were used to play Ukrainian militia and corpses.
Kremlin spies planned to release footage of a staged Ukrainian attack on Russia or pro-Russian separatists.
It apparently showed graphic scenes of blown-up buildings and bodies.
Actors were used in the fake footage, posing as troops and corpses and it is believed British intelligence agencies verified the plot.

Ukraine’s Stop Fake monitoring organization has identified a string of inflammatory Russian-backed videos in recent years.
They include depictions of Ukrainian “Nazis” crucifying children, burying enemy troops alive and executing pregnant women.
Another showed a former police chief in Donbas capital Donetsk having his throat cut – but the “killing” was staged using make-up and fake blood.
The National Corps Party said of the dirty bomb video: “This video is a poorly made fake, and this whole story is a work of sick imagination of Russians to discredit Ukraine.”
