Ukraine Russia war was instigated by Germany conspiring with Ukraine to produce nuclear bombs with the plutonium-239 (PU-239) stored at Chernobyl. PU-239 is the reason why the Russian military targeted and seized control of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on the first day of the Germany provoked invasion and war. Russia invaded Ukraine to prevent Germany from obtaining Chernobyl’s nuclear weapons grade plutonium-239.
Ukraine’s nuclear weapons grade plutonium-239 were stored at Chernobyl in DWCs. Each of the loaded DWCs contained 93 used fuel assemblies from Chernobyl’s aging storage facility. The double-walled canister (DWC) were loaded with the PU-239 into the Chernobyl nuclear power plant (ChNPP) site’s Interim Storage Facility (ISF-2) in 2020. The first fully loaded DWC was placed in storage on 18 November 2020.
Russia invaded Ukraine because Germany is banned by treaties from obtaining, manufacturing and controlling nuclear and biological weapons. Germany is barred from obtaining, manufacturing and controlling nuclear weapons under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and the Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany (a.k.a. Two Plus Four Treaty).
“It is the purpose of the Treaty to prevent the present non-nuclear-weapon States from manufacturing or otherwise acquiring nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices. The provisions of the Treaty are therefore solely designed to attain this objective.” UN, Germany: Ratification of Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT)
Germany had been trying to obtain nukes from France and the UK but France, the UK, the US and other nuclear states are barred from giving Germany control of their nukes. As a result, Germany has been trying since President Trump took office to initiate Germany’s “Nuclear Plan B” – build their own nuclear bombs.
Polish Institute of international Affairs reported that Germany & Ukraine partnered in 26 Aug 2020 to decommission Ukraine’s nuclear power plants.
Germany is involved in the energy transition process in Ukraine by providing it with financial and advisory support. It also promotes the German model (Energiewende), which is based on state-supported development of RES, increasing energy efficiency, and decommissioning nuclear and coal-fired power plants. A declaration on energy partnership signed on 26 August 2020 at the ministerial level sets the framework for German-Ukrainian energy cooperation.
The partnership meant Germany would recover and divert Plutonium-239 in Ukraine that Germany needed to make its own nukes.
Late last year Germany’s defense minister threatened to use NATO’s nuclear arsenal against Russia. Germany’s overt threat caused Russia to mass troops along the Ukraine Russia border.
