In a government meeting on Friday, the senior official made the alleged threat public and claimed that the US gives “help” to other countries that actually causes harm to the receivers.
They additionally ‘helped’ Ukraine by putting pressure on its satellites to provide depleted uranium ammunition. As a result of their annihilation, a radioactive cloud was spreading toward Western Europe. In Poland, there has been an increase in radiation, according to Patrushev.
Unconfirmed claims identifying the objective of a Russian hit last Saturday, which Moscow claimed destroyed an ammo stockpile in the city of Khmelnitsky, have been circulating in Ukraine. The military facility allegedly used as a storage location for depleted uranium shells supplied by the United Kingdom. Strong explosions at the depot have been theorized as the possible cause of the material becoming dust.
According to studies conducted in countries where the weapons have been used in the past, such as Serbia and Iraq, Russia has already issued a warning that the use of depleted uranium munitions poses a long-term hazard to the environment and human health. London has refuted such a risk.
Depleted uranium is a dangerous heavy metal, not because it is radioactive, but because it is toxic to humans. Anybody exposed to uranium or uranium oxide particles from an explosion could breathe them in and get contaminated, or they could contaminate the environment.
Authorities in Poland have refuted reports that the eastern city of Lublin experienced a radiation increase on Monday.
The reported deployment of Ukrainian military patrols that purportedly gathered samples in and around the city fuelled speculation about the explosion in Khmelnitsky. Despite being close to a nuclear power station, reports indicated that patrols that usually monitor the situation there were spotted travelling far from their customary routes.
