UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Russia plans to raise at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday its accusation that Ukraine is planning a “dirty bomb” attack, diplomats said.
Russia has told council counterparts it will bring up the issue during a closed-door meeting of the 15-member body, diplomats said.
With Ukrainian forces advancing into Russian-occupied Kherson province, top Russian officials phoned Western counterparts to say Moscow suspected Kyiv of planning to use a so-called dirty bomb. Western countries accused Russia of plotting to use that warning as a pretext for escalation.
