Britain says Russia likely removing nuclear warheads from missiles and firing at Ukraine

Summary by Ground News
Russia is likely removing nuclear warheads from ageing nuclear cruise missiles and firing unarmed munitions at Ukraine, Britain's military intelligence said on Saturday. The defense ministry said open source imagery shows wreckage of an air launched cruise missile fired at Ukraine which seem to have been designed in the 1980s as a nuclear delivery system. Such a system will still produce damage through the missile's kinetic energy and unspent fuel. But it is unlikely to achieve reliable effects against intended targets.
