Putin Threatens Ukraine with Depleted Uranium Munitions

Putin Warns Ukraine of Depleted Uranium Munitions

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Ukraine against receiving depleted uranium ammunition from its Western supporters. In a recent statement, Putin said that Russia would retaliate with the same if Kyiv receives such ammunition.

Depleted uranium is a byproduct of uranium enrichment, commonly used in armor-piercing ammunition due to its density and high melting point. However, it is also highly toxic and can pose serious health risks, such as kidney damage and cancer, to those exposed to it.

This threat from Russia comes amid rising tensions between the two countries over the conflict in eastern Ukraine, where Ukrainian forces have been battling pro-Russian separatists since 2014. The conflict has resulted in the deaths of thousands of people and has seen Ukraine lose control of Crimea to Russia.

Russia Will Deploy Depleted Uranium if Kyiv Receives from Western Supporters

The deployment of depleted uranium munitions by Russia would not only escalate the conflict but also pose a serious threat to the health and safety of civilians in the region. The use of such weapons has been banned by the United Nations since 1996, as they can have long-lasting and harmful effects on the environment and public health.

It remains to be seen how Ukraine and its Western supporters will respond to Putin’s threat. However, the international community must urge Russia to refrain from using such weapons and find a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict.
