Sergey Shoigu, Russia’s Defence Minister, has called four Defence Ministers of NATO member states and warned them about a potential usage of a “dirty bomb” by Ukraine, Russia’s MoD reports.
The ministers Shoigu called were France’s Sébastien Lecornu, Turkey’s Hulusi Akar, the UK’s Ben Wallace and Lloyd Austin of the US.
Shoigu “got his message regarding his concern of about a potential usage of a ‘dirty bomb’ by Ukraine across to his counterparts from France, Turkey and the UK; the details behind his talk with Austin are undisclosed, the only thing known is that the two spoke about the Ukraine War.
Russia’s RIA Novosti reported of a potential usage of a “dirty bomb” earlier today, citing its source.
“The Kyiv regime is preparing a false flag op on its territory: an explosion of a so-called ‘dirty bomb’ or a low-capacity nuclear load,” the piece said. RIA’s theory is that Ukraine will try to accuse Russia of using a weapon of mass destruction and “launch a formidable anti-Russian campaign aimed at disturbing trust in Moscow.”
