GB will supply shells with depleted uranium

Tensions are growing on the war front in Ukraine. The Kremlin’s reaction after London’s announcement to supply Kiev with depleted uranium ammunition for use in the war with Russia is harsh. The British Deputy Minister of Defence, Annabel Goldie, has announced that in addition to supplying the Challenger 2 tanks, the country will send “ammunition, including armor-piercing shells containing depleted uranium”. This type of shell, she added, is “very effective” against tanks and armored personnel carriers.

Russia’s reaction

The possible supply of depleted uranium shells announced by the United Kingdom to Ukraine will “cause a global tragedy that will mainly affect Europe”. This is the thought expressed by the chairman of the Russian State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, on his Telegram channel. Volodin recalled that Washington “used similar shells in Yugoslavia and Iraq, which led to the contamination of the area, as well as a sharp increase in cancer among people.”

If the special munitions are supplied to Kiev and used, Russia will be forced to react, Russian President Vladimir Putin had already warned in press statements following talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Moscow.

“At the time when we were discussing the possibilities of the Chinese peace plan, it became known that the UK announced not only the supply of tanks to Ukraine, but also depleted uranium shells. I would like to emphasize that if all this happens , Russia will be forced to react accordingly, bearing in mind that the collective West is already starting to use weapons with a nuclear component,” Putin said.

“They have already used this ammunition when there were events in Serbia, where they bombed peaceful cities and destroyed bridges without any UN sanction,” Defense Minister Dergei Shoigu said. “Those who used this ammunition had serious illnesses. As always, there was little interest in the effects of this ammunition at the time. And somehow it all fell by the wayside. course of events and how we can respond,” he added.
