LONDON (AA) – Along with main battle tanks Challenger 2, the UK will also provide ammunition with depleted uranium for Ukraine, the British minister of state for the Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

In response to a written question by Lord Hylton, a member of the House of Lords, "whether any of the ammunition currently being supplied to Ukraine contains depleted uranium," Annabel Goldie confirmed that the UK will be supplying ammunition with depleted uranium.

"Alongside our granting of a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine, we will be providing ammunition including armour piercing rounds which contain depleted uranium," she said in her written response.

"Such rounds are highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armoured vehicles," Goldie added.
