Crimea: Deadly Mass Poisoning of Russian Soldiers

On the illegally annexed Crimean Peninsula, there have been reports of poison attacks, as reported by the German news website, referencing Defense Express.

According to the report, more than 20 soldiers of a military unit stationed in Simferopol were killed. Partisans are believed to be behind the attack. A statement said: “Two pretty girls came to the checkpoint of the military unit and introduced themselves as locals. They brought seven bottles of vodka and some snacks like fish, sausage, bread, and cheese. The men took vodka and food and then drank and ate with their colleagues. Many of them were poisoned.”

The report suggests that a large amount of arsenic was contained in the alcohol and the food. 24 Russian soldiers were killed, and another eleven were admitted to a hospital.

These claims have not yet been independently verified and/or confirmed. Therefore, they should be considered with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflicting parties to deliberately spread false information to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
