Pentagon says can’t corroborate reports of Russian nuclear arms movement

A senior Pentagon official said she had no information to corroborate reports suggesting Russia might be moving tactical nuclear weapons by rail, and added the U.S. military had not seen anything to change its own nuclear posture, writes Reuters.

“I don’t have anything else but the open source reports”, - said Laura Cooper, a deputy assistant secretary of defense focusing on Russia and Ukraine.

The Pentagon closely monitors Russia’s nuclear forces, a core part of its mission since the Cold War.
