Projectiles with uranium tips sent to Ukraine can create a problem for T-90M and Armata tanks

Shells for the Challenger 2 tanks with depleted uranium will be a serious challenge for the Breakthroughs and Armat.

London decided to send similar ammunition to Ukraine, despite Russia's warnings about the inadmissibility of such steps. This is primarily due to the fact that such ammunition is capable not only of hitting almost any armored target, but also of the fact that such projectiles can lead to contamination of large areas, making the area uninhabitable and unusable.

If with conventional standard ammunition the risk of hitting the T-90M "Proryv" and T-14 "Armata" tanks, based on computer simulation, was assessed as small, then with the use of special ammunition with depleted uranium, it is assessed as critical: hitting the target is guaranteed to lead to penetration armor.

The supply of such munitions by the UK is almost guaranteed to cause a conflict with the use of nuclear weapons. Moreover, judging by the fact that Ukraine will use them, the risk of a nuclear conflict will be primarily for Kyiv, and Kiev is clearly trying to avoid this, although pressure from the West is clearly growing.

And what to do with the T-72, which is many times more than the piece T-90M and Armat?

And what are you boiling? The Russian Federation has shells of this type,
and depleted uranium itself, having less radiation than the ore from which it is mined, is used as counterweights in aircraft and rocket structures, radiation protection in medical radiation therapy and in industrial radiography equipment, as well as containers used to transport radioactive materials.

Even more so In December 2008, 141 states supported the UN General Assembly resolution to conduct an additional study of the effect of depleted uranium munitions by the end of 2010. At the same time, France, Great Britain, Israel and the USA voted against the resolution, and 34 states, INCLUDING RUSSIA, abstained . Now what's the noise?
