UPDATE: Three Portuguese Leopard 2A6 have also arrived in Ukraine
Ukrainian servicemen who are undergoing training by the British Royal Army are trained in the use of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition. This type of shells may be fired by the Challenger 2 tank equipped with an L30 120mm rifled tank gun.
Declassified UK noted that depleted uranium shells were seen on the official video shared by the British Ministry of Defence. The video showed British military instructors showing various types of ammunition for Challenger 2 tanks, including DU shells, to the members of the Ukrainian tank crews.
A DU projectile colored in orange and black colors was spotted on the table in front of the military instructors. The DU ammunition seen in the MoD documentary is marked “inert”, suggesting it could be a replica.
Declassified UK cited a specialist engaged in research on the impact of armed conflicts on the environment:
Doug Weir from the Conflict and Environment Observatory said: “The orange and black munition in the video appears to be an inert display version of the UK’s 120mm CHARM3 DU ammunition.”
CHARM3 is a technical term for Britain’s stockpile of depleted uranium shells.
Weir added: “When DU munitions hit hard targets such as tanks or armoured vehicles, they fragment and burn, generating chemically toxic and radioactive DU particulate [microscopic particles] that poses an inhalational risk to people.
“Managing DU contamination appropriately will be a further burden for Ukraine, in a conflict that has already generated serious pollution problems.”
The very fact that Kiev is ready to use such ammunition speaks of the complete negligence of the Kiev regime to its own citizens, the environment, urban and rural infrastructure.
The video shared by the UK Defence Ministry also revealed that the US military is involved in training of Ukrainian servicemen in the UK. In addition to British military specialists, the footage showed at least one US military instructor.
“The presence of a US soldier at the training session could escalate tensions further, after the White House denied sending its own depleted uranium stocks to Ukraine,” Declassified UK wrote.
Meanwhile, the United States claims that it does not transfer depleted uranium shells to the Kiev regime. It turns out that the claims from Washington are another lie and the US military is involved in the transfer of DU shells to the Kiev regime and in training Ukrainian militants to use them.
On March 27, Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov claimed that British Challenger tanks, US Stryker and Cougar armored vehicles, German Marder infantry fighting vehicles have already entered service with the AFU.
He shared the video of him riding the Challenger tank:
At the same time, The Guardian reported with reference to the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom that Ukrainian tank crews have returned to their homeland after undergoing training in the UK. The training included instructions on command, control and teamwork, as well as on the effective identification and destruction of targets, the military department clarified.
In his turn, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz confirmed reports that the AFU had received 18 Leopard 2 battle tanks from Germany.
The foreign tanks are expected to take part in the upcoming Ukrainian offensive. According to various estimations it may begin in the middle or in the end of April.

Fore Western “depleted” there is always Russian “enriched” uranium answer! Time for Russia to dust off her hundred thousand tactical nuke artillery shells from the stocks for a start! Just in case something “depleted” starts to fly in their direction…
There is such a thing as a “suitcase” nuclear bomb, which is man portable and can can produce a small ground burst nuclear explosion. The way depleted uranium rounds work, is that they are thinner the a conventional round, yet about the same mass. On impact there is a greater pressure per square inch on the tip of a du round then conventional round, hence more kinetic energy is released. Some of the du round is vaporized, which poses long term harm if inhaled, but most punch through and fragment.
The US/UK should also teach them how to die from cancer as well as teach the local civilian population how to deal with birth defects and various cancers.
We’re going to save Ukraine, even if it means turning the entire country into a nuclear wasteland. Besides, DU induced cancer is more liberal and LGBTQRA+ friendly than all the other types.
On the battlefield these have no impact at all, knowing that common ammo is enough to do all ‘jobs’. No need of extra-penetration, but the Great Whore shithole murican strategy is also the ‘scorched land’ politic knowing very well that no russian conquered territories in bandera hellhole will be ever leaved and become russian lands FOREVER. So, as a vigilant and deeply evil Satan servant they are, why not to poison others lands ? As those scumbag nazi devils usually do ? They have no respect for religion, no respect for divinity, for GOD, they usually set firing points in churches and mosques knowing that russians and muslims don’t want to shot at those locations. Same direction of another perverted nation serving the AntiChrist LGBTQ++++ doctrine, killing itself without knowing.
Yes and Stalin and the others like Lenin, Brezhnev did the same. What, no?
The Golden Shower Child is back with his retro Red-baiting. When are you going to show us those heaps of Holodomor documents you have, you rascally urinal-puck-munching li’l fascist?
Where are you now? Are you in the commie paradise of North Korea? No no no no you are in the “free world” and you are enjoying its privileges? No?
Sorry, what does my location have to do with your beliefs regarding the Holodomor and your long-dead-red baiting? Wacky li’l fascist, you!
It shows the level of your hypocrisy. And if you are a real man, which I doubt, give me your email to have a date and one on one fight if it is possible.
What type of documents? That type of documents are being held by agents and stuff like that not common people like me. Common people like me are listening to testimonies and stuff like that. And what fascist and bullshit? Stalinism is red fascism in fact. I am libertarian and monarchist who supports a limited form of socialism. And this is not red baiting but fact but the gutter is damaging your health.
Golden Shower Child, you are the one who said that there is a vast amount of evidence that supports your belief in the Holodomor. Now you’ve switched to saying that there is no evidence? Silly li’l fascist urinal-puck-eater!
Where did I say that there is no evidence of the Holodomor? I said that there are testimonies. The right-wing pissed on your grave in 1991 and they are doing it again right now. Look at what is happening in Europe. Only in the American banana republics the left is rising. Every other part of the world, the right and the far-right are marching and you can’t help it.
To the best of my knowledge, Golden Shower Child, nobody has pissed on my grave because I’m still alive. You claimed that there is vast trove of evidence that the Holodomor occurred, and yet you cannot provide any, and in the above post, you said that there are no documents available. You’re like a retarded Joseph Smith with his magic Golden Plates and his magic hat that nobody else can see. Urinal-puck-munching, rascally li’l fascist, you!
It is not literal. Commies were pissed on 1991 because they lost so badly without even a bullet spent. And what Joseph Smith? The Mormon? I would pick a Mormon over a Stalinist anytime but they are not my type.
No matter how many Holodomors you make, you will lose every time. Again and again and again. And do you know why? In the end the good wins and the falsehood is defeated. Even if you rose up 1,000,000 times and you made 1,000,000 Holodomors, do you know what? You would lose 1,000,000 times. And no matter what you and other basement dwellers are saying, you can’t do much about it. You will lose again and again until you change mind.
What are you on about there, you kooky, urinal-puck-munching fascist weirdo?
Libertarian monarchism with a limited degree of socialism is fascism for you? Maybe the gutter and the sewers are making you having delusions, besides you having paraphilias about urines and stuff like that. Despite being libertarian, if these paraphiliacs are castrated and drug dealers get hanged then this will be very pleasing to my eyes.
Give it up fellas, you’re boring!
No, idiot. Using constantly the straw man fallacy is the perfect description of a dumbfuck dabbler with cognitive brain failure. The so called communist ‘antireligion’ doctrine was never accepted by the people. And to speak the truth, as a former citizen of a ‘communist’ country, the interference of the state in the ones personal beliefs was minimal and a facade. All peoples goes to churches and celebrate the religion holidays without fear if they wanted that. The religious oppression is just another murican west world shithole myth as were many others. If wanted I can index everything in that aspect, starting with the church construction during ‘communism’ and finishing with the ordnance of priests or the religious wedding ceremony of the communist party members. But today the menace of the demo(no)cratic virtues to religion is 1 MILLION times more dangerous and deadly. The clergy officially declared that. In fact, the same ‘axiom’ applies here as for the transition to capitalism. Relatively bad yesterday, extremely bad today, asshole.
Another strawman fallacy. It is either communism or neoliberalism. No. Both are equally failures. And you must remember that Ceausescu was killed by his own people. Right? And you see that Gorbachev was trying to move away from communism and then Yeltsin made inroads into liberalism and Putin inroads into conservatism. Or that Deng made inroads to capitalism and now Xi is trying to make China more conservative and Jesuits are making inroads to China. Even Bashar al-Assad has opened to the monarcho-capitalists of UAE.
Ceaucescu was killed in a CIA coup. You’re a real carpet-biter dominant-submissive fan, aren’t you? You seem to really, really like dominance hierarchies and magical-thinking. Silly urinal-puck-munching Golden Shower Child.
Dominance hierarchies? Hahahaha you are the one that supports totalitarian dictators. His own army made him go to the firing squad. Not CIA or anything like that.
No, idiot. Ceaucescu was killed by the foreign intel agencies in collaboration with our intel service called Securitate who betrayed him for varies motifs, one of them was to steal the vast sum of secret currency and to turn into new capitalists. From the best ‘communists’ they overnight turned into best capitalists. Of course by direct learning how to organize a deep state organism just like ameriscum have. And of course somewhere between was the large mass of the useful idiots who were aware of nothing, just how I was myself back then. And now, 80% of that mass of stupid idiots knew they were duped by the murican shithole and its whore agent slaves in our countries. Just stop talking about things you don’t lived personally because you look like a dipshit moron with head full of shit.
Back then? Are you that old? And you are probably over 50 and have a name like that? Looool Sure, that Securitate was a beacon of people’s democracy and equality (not) but you didn’t mention in your conspiracy the so called fascists of Legionaires. Maybe they were the ones that overthrew the Ceausescu regime. Or maybe Ceausescu was the continuation of the so called Legionaires regime. Who knows?
I told you you’re a cognitive idiot. I speak from direct experience of events and you, like a dumbfuck cretin keep talking about ‘maybe they were…who knows’, mixing super-idiot ideas with personal forced solitaires to continuously feed your delusional schizo psycho, moron.
So Ceausescu wasn’t killed by his own people but by CIA. Proof for that?
Idiot, the MoD was assassinated, General Vasile Milea just hours before Ceausescu flee, in his cabinet by Securitate traitors because he was loyal to Ceaucescu and in that morning he figure out the coup from CIA with the blessing of the Gorbatchev and theirs inside agents notably his subordinate, commander of the army Stanculescu and the head of Securitate. They killed him before he gave army the order to encircle and take into captivity all the Securitate forces….there are many testimonies from direct implicated peoples, even books wrote on that subject. From the peoples who participated into Ceausescu fake trial, half of them commit suicide, either being eliminated because they knew too much, or because they cannot live with such heavy conscience when they realize what a pawn were in the hands of the foreign intel agencies. There are 15+ books describing how the CIA with the Gorbatchev help infiltrated Securitate long before ’89 and planned Ceausescu assassination. ALL of them were wrote by high military profiles of that times or peoples from former government aparatus, motha fucker silly urinal-puck-munching Golden Shower Child.
you’re a fool… What Romanian yankee said is 100% true. I was born in the same country and raised up there..
A perfect example. Same things happens today, 100 years later. Same agenda (capturing Russia’s enormous resources), same actors (murican deep state leaders) and the same scenario (agents & a matched intrigue).
And Stalin weren’t in the revolution right? Who helped overthrew the Czars? Jacob Schiff perhaps? But the gangsters in Washington wanted Trotsky to rule but Trotsky failed. However, that doesn’t mean that Stalin was good either. And the opportunistic side of Stalin showed when he accepted the help of the so called West and his deal with several monarchists and Orthodox Christians to help him in his great war against Hitler.
Unless these tanks hide in the woods or in schools they will be spotted and taken out by artillery. Besides that my question is “where are all the American environmentalists and neo liberals always so concerned about the environment?” Well,since they are heavily funded by the corporate bankers of Wall Street, these self appointed ever so conscientious stewards of the environment are silent.
Hiding in schools and hospitals is what western trainers teach them the very first day.
Britain is England Scotland and Wales, the UK includes Northern Ireland. It is correct to use ‘Britain’ for Scotland, England and Wales or a combination of two of them, it just is not specifying which parts. We are not aware of which parts of Britain, other than England, may have been used for training these guys The GREAT in front of Britain is a relic of the past. As many English people are living in other parts of Britain, and have parentage of more than one region, it may be applicable to call us by the inclusive label of British. However many Scots, Welsh and the English do tend to like to have the specifiic label used.
Perhaps Russia could send Britain and the US some depleted uranium dust which would affect those most responsible for this proxy war and these decisions? .
Great idea, delivery system can be the hypersonic missiles which have pinpoint accuracy, and about the same velocity as a DU round fired from a tank. Viable delivery locations could be British MoD Headquarters, Winchester, Tower of London, or 10 Downing.
So Ukro tank crews will be polluting and killing in their own backyard for decades to come…must be dumb and unworthy. Sow/reap comes to mind.
They will probably use it in the territories the higher ups know they won’t keep.
Russia should sail to the English Channel and do gunnery practise, with DU shells. Let Britain enjoy their fish fingers with DU applied.
West psycho elites: CO2 pollution bad / radioactive pollution good
So, all the agricultured food will be polluted as radioactif. No more export from Ukraine, they can feed the rats whit the weat barns.
During WWI and WWII, the Brits were allies with Russians and Serbs. Now they are allies with Ukrainians and Albanians, just like the Nazis were.
Brits have never been anyones allies. They supported serbs and russians to fight the germans for them. But they deliberatly pretended that they are ready for peace to lure germany into a false sense and make them attack the sowjets before they had defeated the western allies.
Today they do not suppord albians or ukrainians they just use them to fight russia and serbia for them.
Every one else is just usefull cannonfodder in the eyes of the brits.
Everybody is a pawn for them. Gangs and counter-gangs. Frank Kitson. They have used this technique for hundreds of years, and honed it to a fine edge in the twentieth century.
That’s right. In the commie world it goes like this: gang of Stalin vs gang of Trotsky vs gang of Mao vs gang of Khrushev vs gang of Hoxha vs gang of whatever you want to think of.
This happened because back then the so called West were kind of real democracies, despite some flaws. Nowadays, the so called Western countries have become puppets of corporations and banks and they want to create a totalitarian state not democracy. The new founded oligarchies of countries like Russia or Serbia or even Germany are a threat to their unipolar rule so they fund every anti-productive and terrorist movement like Azov or ISIS or Antifa in order to do sabotages and to try to tear down the new emerging powers.
Well Leo hunting !
Britaniju treba nuklearno potopiti
They all burn the same.
Although normally not permissable, I wonder if in this instance it would be justifiable to use something like microwave beam weapons or lasers to disable these tanks as the most environmentally friendly option to prevent them from causing pollution. It seems no worse than using carcinogenic radioactive waste. The big difference in past conflicts was the effects were not so well known, but now they are thanks to Gulf War Syndrome and the after effects on local populations.
Another idea to disable these tanks (it may be impractical, but who knows) – mix something like ether and nitroglycerin to form a highly explosive liquid that will vaporize, fire it in a shell so it is drawn into the air intakes where it will hopefully violently explode and destroy the engine!
TNT ist dafür bestens!
It’s time Russia nuked the shithole UK and IsraHell and got it over and done with.
British tanks – first to die or 1st to buy. Whatever gets rid of them.
All I see is a bunch of walking dead guys…
The UK claims to be “helping” Ukraine while deploying depleted uranium, a weapon that will poison the land for generations to come. Their callousness and cruelty are incredible.
High explosive shells are 1500 dollars a pop. These are fucking expensive. Heard some guided munitions are like 100K. Cost of a russian tank is low. Nasty idea but get the names and details of those trained to use them. The shells are worth more than Twenty Ukrainians. Buy them for cash from defectors after failed assaults…
Kasabian La Fee Verte
CHernobyl Star Wormwood Special…..
Imagine Dragons Radioactive…
Children of the revolution T rex moulin rouge….
You should get samples. Ugly job but I would be surprised if the Uranium sources weren’t traceable. Some Mad UN paper thing where you claim the WRONG kind of radioactive slug was fired and killed our soldiers would be funny….
Run the Jewels Dj SHadow -NObody speak
Watch for the Gulf War SYndrome affect going full Ice Bucket challenge. CHemical and psychological damage. Those arrays were purported to kill birds and cause neurological damage over extended exposure.They will kill their own army and poison the already irradiated land from the Chernobyl incdient.
Carry my urn to ukraine – Army of lovers
Time has come to hit the Downing Street with a Russian tactical nuke. Not too much destruction in Londonistan, just in a perimeter of +/- 1 km around the Downing Street and the ignorant British arrogance is over for long-long years!
More canon fodder is all this is. All of those people will be killed for nothing.
Carpet B them, just like the good ol days back in WW2
