Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Moscow would be “forced to react” if the United Kingdom provides Ukraine with armor-piercing tank ammunition that contains depleted uranium.
Putin was reacting to news story that stated that 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.
She said the ammunition was “highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armored vehicles.
Depleted uranium is a by-product of the nuclear enriching process used to make nuclear fuel or nuclear weapons.
