Russian forces shelled tank filled with nitric acid in Rubizhne
Russian forces have shelled a tank with nitric acid — residents urgently need to close windows and doors and not leave the premises, Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration Serhiy Haidai has said.
“In Rubizhne, Russians hit a tank with nitric acid‼ Urgent‼ Do not leave the shelters! If you are indoors, close the doors and windows!” Haidai wrote on Facebook.
He emphasized that acid vapors irritate the respiratory tract. Gas masks must be used to protect against vapors and nitric acid mist.
“Prepare protective face masks soaked in soda solution! When applied locally to the eyes, nitric acid causes severe damage, to the necrosis of the cornea and conjunctiva, leading to loss of vision,” he said.
