Moscow will regard Kiev’s use of uranium-core shells as the use of “dirty” bombs

According to the head of the Russian delegation at the talks in Vienna on military security and arms control Konstantin Gavrilova, Moscow will regard the use of uranium-core shells for Leopard 2 tanks as the use of “dirty” nuclear bombs.

He stressed that the Russian side is aware that Western Abrams and Leopard tanks, as well as Bradley and Marder infantry fighting vehicles, have uranium-core shells in their arsenal, the use of which leads to contamination of the terrain. As an example, the diplomat cited the conflicts on the territory of Yugoslavia and Iraq.

“If such shells are delivered to Kiev, we will consider it as the use of dirty nuclear bombs against Russia with all the ensuing consequences,” Gavrilov stressed.
