Russia Issues Urgent Nuclear War Warning as Doomsday Clock Moves Closest Ever to Midnight, Prompting WHO to Urge Countries to Stockpile Medicines for “Nuclear Emergencies”

Russia’s urgent nuclear war warning comes as the Doomsday Clock moves closer than it ever has to midnight, prompting the World Health Organization to urge countries to begin stockpiling medications for “nuclear emergencies.”

The Doomsday Clock was set a minute and a half (90 seconds) before midnight on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the closest it has ever been to midnight since the clock’s inception in 1947.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which includes nuclear and climate experts, decides the time on the Doomsday Clock. According to experts, the end of the world is now closer than it has ever been.

On Tuesday, the Biden regime agreed to send Abrams tanks to Ukraine to fight the Russian military.

This means the US will be forced to send men and women to operate the tanks and perform maintenance. It is the Biden regime’s attempt to escalate the war in Ukraine.

Less than 24 hours later, Germany announced they would be sending Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

The Kremlin called this move a “blatant provocation,” according to US Sun.

The official Putin spokesperson also declared that the Abrams and Leopard tanks “will burn like all the rest.”

“Russia’s thinly veiled threats to use nuclear weapons remind the world that escalation of the conflict – by accident, intention or miscalculation – is a terrible risk,” said Rachel Bronson, head of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Recall, Retired Virginia State Senator and former Marine Helicopter Pilot, career JAG Officer and Chief of the Army Criminal Law Division, Col. Richard Black, (USA Ret.) told the Gateway Pundit that the “globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear armageddon.”

According to Daily Mail, Dmitry Medvedev, a close ally of Vladimir Putin, recently warned that a military defeat for Russia in Ukraine may lead to a nuclear war with the West.

Moscow said Medvedev’s warnings were in line with Russian nuclear doctrine.

Back in September, Vladimir Putin warned the West that his nuclear threat is “not a bluff.”

“The purpose of this West is to weaken, divide and ultimately destroy our country. They are already directly saying that in 1991 they were able to split the Soviet Union, and now the time has come for Russia itself, that it should disintegrate into many mortally hostile regions and regions,” Putin said in his seven-minute nationally televised address last year.

“And they have been planning such plans for a long time. They encouraged gangs of international terrorists in the Caucasus, promoted the offensive infrastructure of NATO close to our borders… Nuclear blackmail was also launched. We are talking not only about the shelling of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, which is encouraged by the West, which threatens a nuclear catastrophe, but also about the statements of some high-ranking representatives of the leading NATO states about the possibility and admissibility of using weapons of mass destruction against Russia – nuclear weapons,” Putin added.

“To those who allow themselves to make such statements about Russia, I would like to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, and for some components more modern than those of the NATO countries. And if the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal to protect Russia and our people. It’s not a bluff,” he continued.

Trump responded to the speech by saying, “President Putin of Russia is now threatening the use of Nuclear Weapons, saying ‘It is not a bluff.’”

“The Ukrainian conflict should never have happened, and would not have happened if I were President,” Trump continued. “But as I have made very clear for quite some time, this could now end up being World War III.”

On Friday, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued guidance on how to survive a nuclear catastrophe instead of urging countries for peace talks.

“The World Health Organization (WHO) today updated its list of medicines that should be stockpiled for radiological and nuclear emergencies, along with policy advice for their appropriate management. These stockpiles include medicines that either prevent or reduce exposure to radiation, or treat injuries once exposure has occurred,” according to the news release.

“In radiation emergencies, people may be exposed to radiation at doses ranging from negligible to life-threatening. Governments need to make treatments available for those in need – fast,” said Dr. Maria Neira, WHO Acting Assistant Director-General a.i, Healthier Populations Division. “It is essential that governments are prepared to protect the health of populations and respond immediately to emergencies. This includes having ready supplies of lifesaving medicines that will reduce risks and treat injuries from radiation.”

“This updated critical medicines list will be a vital preparedness and readiness tool for our partners to identify, procure, stockpile and deliver effective countermeasures in a timely fashion to those at risk or exposed in these events,” said Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme.

Components of a pharmaceutical stockpile for radiation emergencies

This publication focuses on pharmaceuticals for treating radiation exposure and addresses the governance and management of such a stockpile. A typical radiation emergency stockpile will include the following medicines:

  • Stable iodine, administered to prevent or reduce the exposure of the thyroid to radioactive iodine;
  • Chelating sand decorporating agents (Prussian blue, applied to remove radioactive caesium from the body and calcium- / zinc-DTPA used to treat internal contamination with transuranium radionuclides);
  • Cytokines used for mitigation of damage to the bone marrow, in case of acute radiation syndrome (ARS); and
  • Other medicines used to treat vomiting, diarrhoea and infections.

Emerging treatments and countermeasures also discussed in the report give insight to the future medical countermeasures that could be used for managing patients overexposed to radiation. In particular, studies identifying new cellular and molecular pathways and means of administrating drugs may be exploited for novel treatments and new products for use during a radiation emergency.

Last year, The Gateway Pundit reported that the US is increasing its supply of medications used to treat injuries that accompany acute radiation syndrome.  This may be an indicator of a looming danger.

The Biden regime announced its plan to spend $290 million on Amgen drug Nplate for “radiological and nuclear emergencies.”

“As part of long-standing, ongoing efforts to be better prepared to save lives following radiological and nuclear emergencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is purchasing a supply of the drug Nplate from Amgen USA Inc; Nplate is approved to treat blood cell injuries that accompany acute radiation syndrome in adult and pediatric patients (ARS),” according to the news release.

The world is a very dangerous place due to the actions and failed leadership of the Biden regime.
