Chemical weapon samples found at the Yekaterinburg city dumpsite [photos]

Posted on April 26, 2018 by tim

At the city dump site of Yekaterinburg there have been found test tubes with chemical warfare samples. Amongst them is the very well known and very toxic sulphur gas which has the ability to form large blisters on exposed skin and in the lungs. And there are some more:

Besides the mustard gas there was also a sarin or NATO designation GB (G-series, ‘B’) gas.  A colorless, odorless liquid, it is used as a chemical weapon due to its extreme potency as a nerve agent. Exposure is lethal even at very low concentrations, where death can occur within one to ten minutes after direct inhalation of a lethal dose.

Some of the test tubes were already broken and leaking.

Someone called firefighters for some reason, though among them there are rescuers who are trained to deal with chemical substances.

A set of the test tubes was discovered by a random man going to his job. He says he saw a strange object and decided to look into it in detail. After he started reading the names of the tubes he was shocked as he instantly recognized famous toxic gases names. “I don’t know how dangerous it is but I instantly called the police.”

Mustard gas is one of the most famous chemical weapons of the 20th century. It was forbidden to use in 1997.

Sarin is also very dangerous. It was used by Iraq against Iran in their wars. Also this gas was used in Syrian Guta in 2013. Also the chemical attack in Syria this year was using sarin (and also chlorine).

Hopefully nobody got hurt

    Criminally careless mess in Russia.

  2. Douglas says:

    I wonder, is it normal in Russia to handle leaking vials of nerve gas and VX with your bare hands?

  3. Mike says:

    Another possibility is that the whole thing is staged, i.e. anybody can their hands on sample of nerve gas, so of course Russian government is not responsible for what happens in England. How convenient!

    • Douglas says:

      Good point Mike. Yes, the whole sordid event could be staged. It looks like some sort of poison element agent’s sales kit. How bizarre!!!. As a probable hoax, its very grotesque…..most wacky.
      The dark brown vial is most likely used engine oil.

        It looks nothing like a sales kit. It’s a kit of samples for use in civil defence shelters and for training. Come on guys, enough of the tin foil hat malarky.

    Looking at the box and tubes it actually looks very BADLY STAGED. Not going to find them like that in melted snow behind somebody’s garage. Incompetently staged, as usual when Russians lie about something.

  5. MattNSW says:

    That is not in any way worrying. I’d buy the guy who reported it to the cops a beer if I could, good man.

    I do not think these are the real deal chemicals, but instead probably these are educational (demo) tools ment to look like the real agents. This box does not provide adequate protection if these would be the real chemicals. It would also explain why all such potent chemicals are kept together in one box, and is such great quantities. Plus the glass tubes are completely sealed so these cannot be used as test samples in the lab etc.

    • Douglas says:

      Darius…..you makes sense. This box is very flimsy. What if someone drops it and the agent vials are broken. You immediately have death. This is some sort of educational display. Real poison agents would never be casually displayed in such an inadequate box.

  7. Mike says:

    Makes sense..
