(DCWatchdog.com) – As Russian President Vladimir Putin and his hand-picked minions make more threats about the use of nuclear weapons in Putin’s so-far failed attempt to conquer Ukraine, the Biden administration is stockpiling a drug used for the treatment of acute radiation syndrome.
As The Telegraph is reporting in “US splashes $290m on anti-radiation drugs after Putin ups nuclear threats”:
“The US government has purchased a significant supply of radiation-injury drugs as the Russian president threatened the use of nuclear weapons.
“A $290 million procurement of the drug Nplate, to treat acute radiation syndrome (ARS), was announced by the US Health and Human Services (HSS).
“The government confirmed it was the first purchase of the drug, manufactured by the California pharmaceutical company Amgen.
“The purchase comes after Vladimir Putin renewed his threat of nuclear war. In a speech last month he vowed to use ‘all the means at our disposal’ to protect Russia and its people. ‘This is not a bluff,’ he said.”
Yet, the Biden administration denies it has anything to do with Putin’s repeated threats to use nuclear weapons.
“An HSS spokesman told The Telegraph: ‘This is part of our ongoing work for preparedness and radiological security. It has not been accelerated by the situation in Ukraine.'” [emphasis added]
