Russia said this week that Ukraine could use a supposed “dirty bomb” in its own territory.
A “dirty bomb” is a conventional bomb mixed with radioactive, biological, or chemical materials that are spread in an explosion.
USA and its allies suspect that Russia could use a dirty bomb in a “false flag” attack, possibly to justify Moscow’s use of conventional nuclear weapons, since it is at a disadvantage in eastern and southern Ukraine.
Biden said Tuesday: “I’m not guaranteeing it’s a ‘false flag’ operation yet. We do not know”.
