Zakharova described London’s plans to supply uranium-containing ammunition to Kiev as devastating
MOSCOW, March 23 – RIA Novosti. Commenting on the UK’s plans to supply depleted uranium munitions to Kiev, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the West’s destructive actions are a kind of standard for Euro-Atlantic countries.
Citing their use in Iraq and Yugoslavia as examples, he called “dishonest” claims that there was no threat from the use of depleted uranium shells.
“But when they say that all this is regularly used by them and meets their standards, they are not cheating here. It is really the norm for them to use such shells that lead to such consequences,” stressed Zakharova.

He reminded that these munitions pose a threat not only to those who use them, but also to future generations and “everyone who benefits from the fruits and products grown on this land”.
“Actually for them, it’s a certain standard, the Western standard. The other thing is that for us it’s not a standard, that’s why we’re talking about it. The West’s destructive approach, global destruction, is not new.” said Zakharova.
Antonov: Delivery of depleted uranium shells to Kiev brings Armageddon closer
On Tuesday, Britain’s Deputy Defense Secretary Annabelle Goldie said that in addition to the Challenger 2 tanks, London will supply ammunition to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including armor-piercing shells containing depleted uranium.
When projectiles with depleted uranium are used, radioactive dust settles to the ground, is extremely toxic and cannot be decontaminated. The use of such ammunition can lead to cancer epidemics. US troops used depleted uranium during Operation Desert Storm in 1991, during the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, and after the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would respond accordingly to such supplies.
