US pokes fun at Putin, who is worried about the health of Russian tankers in Ukraine

US National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said that depleted uranium munitions are a common type of ammunition, and Russia's claims about them as a step towards escalation are unfounded. Writes about it Ukrainian Truth.

The White House spokesman emphasized that the United States does not transfer depleted uranium ammunition to Ukraine.

“Depleted uranium ammunition has been studied for its effects on human health. This is not a radioactive threat. They are nowhere near a nuclear threat. This is a common type of ammunition that is used, in part, for its armor-piercing properties,” Kirby said.

“If Russia is deeply concerned about the health of its tanks and its tankers, then the safest option for them is to get them out of Ukraine,” he added.

Earlier, Britain confirmed that it would supply Ukraine with depleted uranium ammunition. After that, Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized this decision and said that it was a weapon with a "nuclear component".

Depleted uranium is a waste product of the uranium enrichment process, which consists in separating the uranium-235 isotope from natural uranium. Due to its high density, depleted uranium is used in the armor of military vehicles (in particular, in M1 Abrams tanks) and armor-piercing projectiles.

It is known that during the operation in Kosovo, NATO countries used shells that contained depleted uranium, which is why they were accused of increasing the incidence of leukemia.

According to experts, such shells existed in the Soviet Union, and Russian troops have already used them in Ukraine during a full-scale war. In addition, there is no reason to say that depleted uranium is related to nuclear weapons.
