On Wednesday, the United Kingdom applauded Russian President Vladimir Putin after he appeared to raise the risk of nuclear war in Ukraine in response to the munitions London pledged to Kiev this week.
Putin said on Tuesday that Moscow would respond “accordingly” after the United Kingdom said it would send munitions containing depleted uranium for Challenger 2 tanks to Kiev.
Reuters quoted British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly as saying, “There is no nuclear escalation. The only country in the world talking about nuclear issues is Russia. There is no threat to Russia, this is just about helping Ukraine defend itself.”
Putin says Russia will react “accordingly” if the West sends munitions containing separated uranium
He looked shrewdly to counter Putin’s claims that the munitions contained a “nuclear component” and told reporters that “just because the word uranium is in the title of the depleted uranium munitions, they are not nuclear munitions, they are purely conventional munitions.”
Depleted uranium has been used for decades in modern warfare because of the extra penetrating power it provides.
Depleted uranium is not as radioactive as nuclear munitions, although it is still considered a danger to humans if it penetrates the skin through shrapnel and Some cases of “hot spots” has been registered.
This is not the first time that Russia has sought to justify the use of nuclear weapons not only in Ukraine but against the United Kingdom

In September, a former Putin adviser joined a BBC radio show and, before any questions were asked, began his tirade about how the Western world, including the US and UK, would be a “target” of nuclear attack over their aid to Ukraine.
The Kremlin has also been linked to several suspicious and deadly attacks in the United Kingdom that used dangerous and radioactive materials against its former clients living there.
Attacks have been known to take place in broad daylight, often in public places, and often without a trace of the perpetrators who were notorious for using common-looking items such as poisonous umbrellas and attacking in unsuspecting areas such as quiet rural towns.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, a senior Putin ally, also entered the conversation on Wednesday and warned that “Russia has not only depleted uranium”.
“We must reduce this tendency towards escalation in the conflict and move towards a peaceful settlement,” he added.
