The spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Marija Zaharova, today called Britain's plans to deliver depleted uranium munitions as military aid to Ukraine a "Yugoslav scenario".

"Yugoslav scenario. "These grenades not only kill, but also infect the environment and cause oncological diseases in people living in these areas," Zakharova wrote on Telegram.

She assessed that "it is naive to believe that only those against whom it will be used will become victims."

"First, NATO soldiers, especially Italians, died in Yugoslavia. Then they tried for a long time to get compensation from NATO for the lost health, but their requests were rejected. When will they wake up in Ukraine? I'm not talking about the addicts in Kiev, but about those who are still able to think. Their benefactors are poisoning them," says Zakharova.

The head of the Russian delegation at the negotiations in Vienna on the issues of military security and arms control, Konstantin Gavrilov, said that in the event that depleted uranium ammunition is delivered to Kiev, Moscow will react accordingly, adding that "the decision of the British authorities is still one step towards the brink of collapse and escalation."

He pointed out that the British put ordinary Ukrainians in danger by their actions and pointed out that the Western armies used that ammunition during the bombing of Yugoslavia and during the invasion of Iraq, and as a result more than 1,2 million civilians died.

"The lessons of the past have not been learned again," Gavrilov added.

British Under-Secretary of Defense Annabelle Goldie previously said that, in addition to supplying Ukraine with Challenger 2 main battle tanks, Britain would supply Kiev with ammunition, including shells containing depleted uranium.
