Thursday will mark one month of the Russian invasion of Ukraine — and while the Ukrainians are putting up one hell of a fight, the Ukrainians are paying a severe cost. Today, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has told his countrymen Ukraine “has  suffered serious losses.” Cities are slowly but steadily being reduced to rubble, more than ten million Ukrainians have fled the country, and officials in the European Union are declaring that Russia has commited war crimes. The Russians appear to be deliberately targeting hospitals and bomb shelters.

If Ukraine secretly has chemical or biological weapons, as some unconvincing voices, including Russian government and Russian state media claim… why haven’t the Ukrainians used them? What, 150,000 Russian troops coming over the border just wasn’t a big enough threat to risk using them? The danger just isn’t severe enough yet to justify using them? They’re waiting for another city to get demolished before taking them off the shelf?

(Once again, declaring that Ukraine doesn’t have a biological weapons program doesn’t mean that Ukraine doesn’t have laboratories that have samples of dangerous pathogens.)
