Russia warns of “nuclear escalation” over depleted uranium ammunition for Leopard 2, M1 Abrams and Challenger 2 tanks


After months of requests from Kyiv, several Western countries have agreed to supply battle tanks to Ukraine. The Kremlin is now warning that a special type of ammunition could have severe and drastic consequences: a “nuclear escalation”.

Ukraine will receive various modern main battle tanks from various western countries.

The Leopard 2 (GERMANY), the M1 Abrams (USA) and the Challenger 2 (UK) tanks, can fire depleted uranium ammunitions.

Now Konstantin Gavrilov said that the use of this type of projectiles would be treated as a use of nuclear weapons and that they would react accordingly.

During the conflict in Yugoslavia, NATO used such radioactive shells. Due to the enormous heat that is generated during the impact, uranium oxides are formed that can contaminate large areas.

Konstantin Gavrilov: ‘We warn the Western sponsors of the Kiev military machine against encouraging nuclear provocations and blackmail. We know that Leopard 2 tanks, as well as the Bradley and Marder armored infantry carriers are armed with armor-piercing projectiles with uranium warheads. Their use leads to the contamination of the area, like it was in former Yugoslavia and Iraq.

In case such munitions for NATO-made heavy weapons are supplied to Kiev, we will consider that as the use of dirty nuclear bombs against Russia with all the consequences that come with it.

DUR vs tungsten

The three types of tanks enumerated above can fire uranium-depleted ammunition from their main 120mm caliber guns. The US military uses so-called “depleted uranium rounds” (DUR).

Depleted uranium is produced as a waste product during the enrichment of uranium. In addition to its significantly low but still significant level of radioactivity, it is characterized by its enormous density of 19.2 grams per cubic centimeter. For comparison: steel has a density of 7.85 grams per cubic centimeter and is therefore significantly “lighter”.

In contrast, the ‘Bundeswehr’ is now using 120mm projectiles with a tungsten core as Germans don’t enrich uranium themselves. With a density of 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter, the rare metal is even slightly denser than depleted uranium.

Tank shells with depleted uranium (DUR) are dangerous because of the radioactivity they release. The UN Office for Disarmament Affairs writes in a report examining the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia that when a DUR hits a metal plate, the tremendous kinetic energy is converted into heat, which then produces various forms of uranium oxides.

These microscopic uranium particles can then travel distances of up to 26 miles (42 kilometers) and thus potentially contaminate a large area. According to the United Nations, however, the main danger is internal contamination (increased rate of cancer and weird anomalies by people inhaling the particles).

Russia has announced that western tanks will be the primary targets in the war and will be quickly destroyed… I think so too… Bang! Bang! [TASS, UN]

  1. Too much! When Zelensky’s buddies are through with Ukraine it will a bombed out poisonous radioactive wasteland. With friends like that, who needs enemies.

  2. Is it me or does zelenzsky look to have the eyes of a crack cocaine user, in his “its a dream and its a task” speech, his eyes have that very same partiality withdrawn shifty look like a crackhead, as well as his eyes are sunk into his head these days with puffy bagged bottom eyelids. ?Hmmm.

    • Well, consider where they are too. Place is full of nazi-hookers, dope, pedos, and now bozobiden has given these satanic kabbalists 100 Billion to launder, squander, and be hedonistic freaks.

  3. U.S., Israel launch military exercise to send message to Iran, others
    The United States and Israel began a massive joint military exercise in Israel on Monday to show adversaries like Iran that Washington is not too distracted by the war in Ukraine and the threat from China to mobilize a large military force, a senior defense official said.

    Juniper Oak 23 is “the most significant exercise between the United States and Israel to date,” the official said, citing the enormous number of aircraft, extensive coordination with the Israel Defense Forces, and the complicated live-fire component. WW3 and Iran is biggest player in it.. Bomb Bomb IRAN NOW>>>

  4. The Jewish Nazis want their Third World War now!
    And they shall have it!

  5. We hear the sounds of Fascism and Racism and Radicalism for USA and world… WW3 is already started long time ago now is in final stages… We ask all Watch March 2023 when Antifa supporters or Trump Supporters will get nothing in EBT riots are pending to happen.. Can some one pick up this story and stretched it .. natural news did it thanks a lot ranger..
    he coming EBT riots: What will happen when government entitlements stop?
    (NaturalNews) EBT cards are modern-day food stamps, except they’re electronic. In essence, they are government-issued debit cards that allow recipients to spend taxpayer money for their own groceries. But EBT cards aren’t merely good on food staples like beans and rice, they can be spent on processed junk food that promotes diabetes and obesity. That’s the “dirty little secret” of the EBT scheme: It encourages low-income Americans to become high-profit customers of the pharmaceutical industry by eating their way to obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

    That’s why the food industry loves EBT cards, too: Most EBT users are low-education consumers who understand virtually nothing about nutrition. They tend to buy the most nutritionally-depleted processed foods available, and that equates to high-profit foods for the processed food industry. (The highest-profit foods are the ones with the least nutrition, it turns out.)

  6. Right now, it is hoped for order out of chaos. But chaos is their final stand. All they have left I think.

  7. Marxist-satanists want order out of chaos. Oikophobic imbeciles, perverts, and suicidal/shit-for-brains lefties keep poking the bear. (((SMH))).

    Media wants WWIII to cover headlines instead of bozobiden and his crap-in-the-pants buffoonery. So pathetic.

    Banksters can finance both sides of the war as the winner pays the loser’s debts.

    Same shit, different flies.
