Putin warns UK over depleted uranium tank shells for Ukraine



Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Moscow would be “forced to react” if the United Kingdom provides Ukraine with armour-piercing tank ammunition that contains depleted uranium.

Putin was reacting on Tuesday to news the UK’s minister of state for defence, Annabel Goldie, had confirmed that ammunition containing depleted uranium was part of a military aid package being sent to Ukraine along with Challenger 2 battle tanks.


 The Defense Ministry of the United Kingdom said depleted uranium was a standard component of its armor-piercing munitions, claiming that Moscow’s response to the news of their possible supplies to Ukraine was an attempt to "deliberately disinform" the public.

"It is a standard component and has nothing to do with nuclear weapons or capabilities. Russia knows this but is deliberately trying to disinform," the ministry said in a statement.

  1. The United States and its allies are doing everything to prolong the Ukrainian conflict, not shunning from supply of ammunition with depleted uranium to Kiev, Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said on Wednesday.

    The United Kingdom announced on Monday that it would transfer Ukraine depleted uranium tank ammunition along with Challenger 2 battle tanks.

    "This decision leads to a tragedy on a global scale, which will primarily affect European countries," Volodin said on Telegram.

    The official also expressed concern about the possibility of Kiev using a dirty bomb or even a "tactical nuclear weapons" in the future.

    "If this happens, there will be no turning back.

    Washington and its satellites (London, Brussels, Warsaw and so on) are doing everything to make a 'war to the last Ukrainian' become a 'war to the last European'," Volodin added.
