International community, such as the international atomic energy Agency, will not allow the Ukrainian authorities to make So-called " dirty bomb ", said on Thursday in interview to the newspaper the Deputy defense Minister of Russia Anatoly Antonov.
Secretary of the Ukrainian Council of national security and defense Oleksandr Turchynov before answering the question of reporters, could Ukraine to make a "dirty" bomb (bomb, stuffed with radioactive substances), said that Kiev will use all available resources, as well as among them to create effective weapons, and " what is there, dirty or clean Is another technological issue."
"This is very dangerous. But they were never allowed to do. It's like Pandora's box. If there is a weapon at someone, others will say: why can't I have?" - said Antonov.
He said that " all nuclear material and all technology, including dual-use, are under IAEA safeguards ". The Deputy Minister added that Russia does not need " the spread of nuclear weapons ".
The so-called "dirty bomb" is the most simple form of radiological weapons and consists of a container with a radioactive isotope and the explosive charge. Upon detonation of the explosive charge container with the isotope breaks down, and under the influence of shock waves radioactive substance is sprayed in a certain area. One of the most negative effects of such weapons - radioactive contamination of the terrain.
