How Russians hawked “Dirty Bomb” WMDs to ISIS: The FBI have thwarted 4 plots by gangsters with links to Putin

Western security experts believe deadly Russian chemical weapons similar to the Novichok nerve agent used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia will be offered for sale on the black market.

Criminals with links to Russian intelligence have tried to sell nuclear material to terrorists such as Islamic State four times in recent years, but have been thwarted by the FBI and other agencies.

The plots to buy radioactive material for the construction of a ‘dirty bomb’ all centred on Moldova, a murky former Soviet republic.
