Russia claims Ukraine in ‘final stage’ of creating ‘dirty bomb’

Moscow says Ukraine has nearly completed building a “dirty bomb,” after Russia’s defense minister in calls with NATO counterparts claimed Kyiv’s forces are planning to deploy the weapon.

“According to the information we have, two organizations in Ukraine have specific instructions to create a so-called ‘dirty bomb.’ This work is in its final stage,” Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov says in a statement.

The United States has dismissed Russia’s accusations on the matter as “transparently false.”
