War: The United Kingdom responds to allegations that Russia used chemical weapons against Ukraine.
In the midst of the current war between the two neighboring nations, Britain's armed forces minister, James Heappey, has stated that London is investigating reports that the Russian military deployed chemical weapons against Ukraine.
According to reports circulating on Ukrainian social media, such weapons were allegedly used against Ukraine's besieged southern city of Mariupol.

If chemical weapons were used, it would be a very important moment for our PM [Boris Johnson] and other heads of government around the world.
“President Putin must be aware that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable.”
