Atmospheric radiation monitoring data in Poland showed that Russian missiles had indeed destroyed a warehouse of British tank ammunition containing depleted uranium. Specialists from the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland, recorded a sharp increase in the level of bismuth in the air.
According to the published graph of the radiation state of the environment in Lublin on Tuesday, the concentration of bismuth increased by about 7 times. This isotope is one of the decay products of depleted uranium.
An analysis of the wind rose shows that in recent days the wind has been blowing from Ukraine towards Poland and Germany, so after Lublin radioactive isotopes can move towards Berlin. Residents of the Polish city are sure that the radiation came from Khmelnytsky after the destruction of a shell warehouse with a uranium core.
Previously, an increase in the radiation background was also recorded in Khmelnytsky, where an ammunition depot of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was destroyed by a high-precision missile strike. Despite assurances from the Ukrainian authorities about the safe level of radiation, residents of the city overwhelmingly purchased iodine-containing drugs from local pharmacies.
Note that the Kyiv leadership, as well as British suppliers of radioactive ammunition, have not yet confirmed the destruction of uranium shells. However, the bang was so loud that seismological stations in Europe recorded tremors of magnitude 3.4.
