How true is Putin’s claim of ‘dirty bomb’? UN nuclear agency will investigate

Russia Ukraine War: The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog will this week conduct an “independent verification” of Russian allegations related to the production of so-called ‘dirty bombs’ at two sites in Ukraine. Russia has accused Ukraine of preparing to use such a weapon against Moscow’s troops, but Kyiv suspects that Russia itself may be using the dirty bomb.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Rafael Grossi said, “IAEA inspectors will conduct independent verification at these locations. They will work to detect any undeclared production of nuclear material or processing of nuclear material as part of security measures and reassurance.” that there are no undeclared nuclear materials and activities.” The agency said it had “inspected one of the two locations a month ago and found no undeclared nuclear activity or material.”

What accusations did Russia make?

According to the BBC, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told Britain’s Defense Secretary, Ben Wallace, in a phone call that he was “concerned about possible provocations from Kyiv, including the use of a dirty bomb.” On Thursday (27 October), Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the IAEA to inspect Ukraine’s nuclear sites “as soon as possible”. Along with this, Russia has also made its claims in the United Nations Security Council and has said that the use of dirty bombs would be an act of nuclear terrorism. However, Ukraine has rejected Russia’s allegations along with France, Britain and the US.

What is Dirty Bomb?

It is a bomb that contains a radioactive material, such as uranium, that disintegrates into the air when its conventional explosive detonates. It does not need to contain highly sophisticated radioactive materials, as used in atomic bombs. Instead, it may use radioactive materials from hospitals, nuclear power stations or research laboratories. It is much cheaper and faster than nuclear weapons. For example, the Dirty Bomb can also be carried behind a vehicle. Dirty bombs can cause serious diseases like cancer. This is the reason why the dirty bomb is considered a deadly weapon.
