A petition calling for a ban on the use of depleted uranium munitions promised by the UK by the Ukrainian armed forces has been posted on the website of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy . The publication date of the document is March 27.
By Tuesday morning, the petition had received less than 100 votes. For it to be considered by the Ukrainian authorities, at least 25,000 people must vote.
The authors of the text emphasize that the use of depleted uranium projectiles is nothing more than a crime against humanity.
“I demand a positive consideration of this petition and I take safe measures to exclude the use of such ammunition by the Armed Forces of Ukraine until the final consideration of the petition,” the document reads.
Earlier, similar advice – think about the consequences of using shells loaded with uranium – was given in Kiev by Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. He called the use of such weapons a Pandora’s box, opening which, one cannot know for sure what to expect from him.
