US President Joe Biden warned Russia on Tuesday against deploying nuclear weapons in the Ukraine conflict, calling such an escalation a dangerous mistake.

When reporters asked Biden whether he believed Russia was planning a dirty bomb assault that it would later blame on Ukraine, “Russia would be making an enormously dangerous error were it to utilize a tactical nuclear weapon.”

This week, Russia claimed Ukraine might deploy a ‘dirty bomb’ on its soil.

A conventional bomb tainted with radioactive, biological, or chemical substances that spread during an explosion is called a dirty bomb.

As Moscow finds itself on the defensive in eastern and southern Ukraine, the US and its allies fear that Moscow may deploy a dirty bomb in a “false flag” strike to justify the use of conventional nuclear weapons.

Tuesday, Biden said: “I can’t yet say with certainty that it’s a false flag operation. We are unsure.”
