UK to transfer depleted uranium ammunition to Ukraine

Great Britain will transfer armor-piercing rounds with depleted uranium to Ukraine.

The State Defense Minister, Baroness Annabel Goldie, in her statement responding to the question of Lord Hilton, a member of the House of Lords of Great Britain, published on the website of the British Parliament, reported this.

"In addition to providing Ukraine with a company of Challenger 2 main battle tanks, we will provide ammunition, including armor-piercing rounds that contain depleted uranium," Goldie said in the statement.

According to her, such projectiles are highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armored vehicles.

For reference:

In February, Prime Minister of Great Britain, Rishi Sunak, at a joint press conference with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, said that the British Challenger 2 tanks, to be delivered to Ukraine in March, would change the situation on the battlefield.
