"Today it became known that the UK, through the deputy head of the Ministry of Defense of this country, announced not only the supply of tanks to Ukraine, but also shells with depleted uranium. It seems that the West really decided to fight with Russia to the last Ukrainian not in words, but in deeds, "Putin said after talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

If all this happens, then Russia will be forced to react accordingly, the head of state emphasized.

"Bearing in mind that the collective West is beginning to use weapons with a nuclear component," he said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the supply of weapons with depleted uranium to Ukraine will end badly for London.

Member of the British House of Lords, Minister of State for Defense of Great Britain Annabel Goldie earlier said that London would send Kiev "ammunition, including armor-piercing ammunition containing depleted uranium."
