According to Nikolay Patrushev, the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, a radioactive cloud threatening Western Europe has been generated due to the destruction of depleted uranium shells in Ukraine. These munitions, supplied by the UK and fired from British-made Challenger tanks, have allegedly resulted in increased radiation levels detected in Poland.
During a government meeting, Patrushev accused the US of pressuring its allies to provide harmful assistance to other nations, including the supply of depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a Russian strike on an ammunition depot in Khmelnitsky, Ukraine, which stored British-provided depleted uranium shells, may have led to powerful explosions, turning the material into dust.
Depleted uranium munitions have long been a subject of concern due to potential environmental and public health risks associated with their use. While depleted uranium is mildly radioactive, it is primarily a health risk due to its toxic nature as a heavy metal. Inhaled particles or environmental contamination could pose risks to human health.
Claims of increased radiation in the eastern Polish city of Lublin have been denied by Polish authorities. Speculation surrounding the blast in Khmelnitsky has been fueled by reports of Ukrainian military patrols collecting samples in the area. It is noteworthy that a nuclear power plant is located nearby, but reports indicate that the patrols were seen deviating from their usual routes, raising questions about the situation’s monitoring.
