U.S. claims about nuclear tests in Russia "unsubstantial," no evidence - Russian permanent rep Ulyanov

MOSCOW. June 14 (Interfax) - Russia's permanent representative to international organizations, Mikhail Ulyanov, has expressed bewilderment over the latest accusations from Washington Russia has been conducting nuclear tests.

"Washington again claimed that Russia is conducting nuclear tests. This charge was already disproved on May 29 by the International Monitoring System. Curiously, two weeks ago the U.S. said 'possibly'; now they are claiming categorically. Have they found some evidence? Voicing it would not be a bad idea. Otherwise, this is unsubstantial," Ulyanov wrote on Twitter

A day earlier, the U.S. military intelligence agency accused Russia of holding secret nuclear tests.
