The British Ministry of Defence said Russia is probably dismantling nuclear warheads from its outdated nuclear cruise missiles and using said unarmed rockets in Ukraine.

In its latest intelligence update, the ministry claimed the inert system is "unlikely to achieve reliable effects against intended targets," despite potentially causing some damage.

"Russia almost certainly hopes such missiles will function as decoys and divert Ukrainian air defenses," the ministry claimed.
