In Rubizhne, Russian invaders hit a tank with nitric acid, residents need to urgently close windows and doors and do not leave the premises, said Serhiy Haidai, the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration.
He stressed that acid fumes are irritating to the respiratory tract. Gas masks are used to protect against nitric acid vapor and mist.
“Prepare protective masks for the face, soak them in soda solution! When applied topically to the eyes, nitric acid causes severe damage with extensive necrosis of the cornea and conjunctiva, which leads to vision loss,” said Haidai.
