Following the Russian claims that Ukraine is planning to detonate a radioactive dirty bomb and blame it on Moscow, officials in Kyiv said that Russia often accuses others of what they plan themselves.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said this meant Russia itself could be preparing for an attack of this kind.

Ukraine’s allies also dismissed the claims, with the US saying it “rejected any pretext for Russian escalation”.
