Respirators being distributed to Russian troops?

In the last week there has been a lot of talk about whether Russian forces may use CW on the citizens of Ukraine to further their war effort. This has been discussed by manym with varying opinions. 

One thing that has been reported on however, is that Russian forces are distributing “gas masks” among their troops in eastern Ukraine, according to a senior Ukrainian official who suggested that Russian forces might orchestrate a chemical attack under false pretenses.

Ambassador Oksana Markarova told reporters at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington that “occupation forces are also handing out, actively, gas masks to local militants and the Russian military in Donetsk Oblast,” citing Ukrainian intelligence reports.

“So we are making this information public to warn that there might be a possibility of provocation. There are different versions of what would they do, [perhaps] after blowing up some industrial tanks with chemicals,” she continued.
