*blinks in worry* WHAT THE FUCK! it just occurred to me , what exactly did they take form that exclusion zone back to Russia ? ahh fuck did they dig in the red forest to get dirt bomb material .... ?

You'd have to refine that. Those hapless fools dug into ground that was laden with radioactive particles.

Unfortunately, Russia has plenty of spent fuel and other radioactive crap they can cram into a bomb housing.

im between there dumb as a rock an they took the dirt from Ukraine for it to be believable but than im back to they are not that smart , thats like 20 tiers above there thinking level.

The point of a dirty bomb is that you don't need to refine the Uranium, just blow the junk into smithereens and let people deal with radioactive fallout. The big benefit of using Chernobyl or any other Ukrainian sourced waste is that the signature will certainly be traceable to Ukraine. If they used Russian waste, there is a chance that it could be pegged to Mother Russia.

By refining I meant to extracting the dust particles from the soil around chernobyl.

Just picking up 2 tons of dirt around chernobyl wouldn't do much.

Unfueling a reactor and then using explosives to turn it into mist would be bad.

If it were me, I would not waste my time with either of those approaches. I would either get some highly contaminated piece of equipment that had been used near the core or an actual spent fuel rod from the cooling basin and use that. Either choice would provide what is needed without nearly the work at the level that you are thinking.

Either way, yes, it sounds like I overread your initial post.

They probably didn’t take anything out other than radiation poisoning. Russia has no shortage of radioactive material to begin with.

Whatever other problems they might have, Russia isn't exactly short of nukes and nuclear material.

Dirt bomb, new class of weapon so not defined as a war crime perhaps? /s.

Payment to Iran for drones, perhaps, is what they took
