British Foreign Secretary James Cleverley said that the supply of depleted uranium to Ukraine “does not constitute a nuclear escalation of the conflict.”
“There is no nuclear escalation. The only country that talks about nuclear aspects is Russia,” the Foreign Minister said in a press statement today, Wednesday, adding that there is no threat and “it is only about helping Ukraine defend itself.” .”
British Deputy Secretary of Defense Annabelle Goldie promised to transfer depleted uranium ammunition to Kyiv.
“In addition to providing a squadron of battle tanks (Challenger 2) to Ukraine, we will supply ammunition, including armor-piercing shells containing depleted uranium,” Goldie said in a statement posted on the website of the British Parliament.
Commenting on this, Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that the supply of depleted uranium missiles to Ukraine could lead to a global tragedy that would affect European countries.
Volodin added in a statement posted on his official Telegram channel: “A war with the last Ukrainian could become a war with the last European,” referring to Britain’s claim to be supplying the Nazi regime with depleted uranium munitions.
