Russia warns against supplying depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine

Moscow, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) The supply of depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine is very dangerous, said the head of the Russian delegation to the Vienna-based Arms Control Committee, Konstantin Gavrilov.

The diplomat told the Izvestia newspaper that the German Leopard-2 tanks, as well as the Bradley and Marder IFVs can use armor-piercing projectiles containing depleted uranium cores.

Gavrilov added that if the vehicles supplied by NATO make use of such munitions against Russian troops, it will be considered as the use of a dirty bomb and will be harshly responded to by Moscow.

He reiterated that the continued arms supplies to Kiev only aggravate the role of the European Union and NATO as parties to the conflict, even though they insist on denying it.
