Pentagon can't confirm Russian nuclear arms move

The United States has no details as to confirm reports indicating that Moscow might be moving tactical nuclear weapons by train, a senior Pentagon official said Tuesday.

"I don't have anything else but the open source reports," added Laura Cooper, a deputy assistant secretary of defense expert on Russia and Ukraine.

The statement comes a day after a freight train was spotted carrying specialized military equipment heading for the front lines. The train, it is said, belongs to a division of the Russian Defense Ministry that handles nuclear weapons.
