Putin responds to U.S. sending depleted uranium shells to Ukraine: ‘There will be no winners’ if war goes nuclear

War in Ukraine appears to be at pivotal point, transitioning from a regional dispute to a global conflagration fully capable of arriving at WWIII and massive loss of life among all parties involved


Vladimir Putin has warned yet again that if the U.S./NATO continue to escalate the war by sending ever-more controversial weapons to Ukraine, including yesterday’s announcement of tanks firing radioactive depleted-uranium munitions, this could quickly turn into World War III.

Putin said, “there will be no winners, including America” in a Third World War.

The Daily Mail reports that amid Russia‘s response to Ukraine launching their much-anticipated counteroffensive, Putin, speaking at a June 13 meeting with Russian war correspondents in Moscow, said: “The United States pretends not to be afraid of an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, but sane people there clearly do not want to take this to a Third World War. In the event of a Third World War, there will be no winners, including America.”

His comments come as Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko revealed that his country had started to receive tactical nuclear weapons from its ally Russia.

Lukashenko told Russian state TV that his country was receiving weapons – some of which he said were three times more powerful than US atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

The deployment of tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus is Moscow’s first move of such warheads – shorter-range less powerful nuclear weapons that could potentially be used on the battlefield – outside Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Putin said on Friday that Russia, which will retain control of the tactical nuclear weapons, would start deploying them in Belarus after special storage facilities to house them were made ready.

The U.S./NATO side is also preparing for a broader war in Europe.

The U.S. is participating in a massive training exercise dubbed “Air Defender 23.” It started on June 14, billed as the largest air-deployment exercise in NATO history. Germany will serve as the host. Three flight zones will be temporarily closed to civilian air traffic over Germany, and authorities are telling the public to expect delays in civilian flights.

From June 12 to June 23, up to 250 aircraft will be stationed across six military bases, with 25 NATO countries taking part. The U.S. alone is sending 100 aircraft across the Atlantic.

Two United States Air Force B-1b “Lancer” nuclear bombers are flying in German air space this morning.  One took off from RAF Fairfield in the UK and joined another for a flight near (but not into) Ukraine air space.  This comes as Russian Tactical nuclear bombs are being delivered into Belarus for storage by Russia.

At about 2 a.m. eastern time on Wednesday, June 14, one B-1 bomber reportedly took off from the UK to go to Germany. This is part of the massive “Air Defender 23” exercise, the largest of its kind since NATO’s inception in 1949.

These nuclear bomber aircraft from the U.S. Air Force are flying into positions in Germany just as Russian tactical-nuclear bombs and missiles have begun to arrive at storage and deployment sites in Belarus.

  1. I can’t fathom the ignorance.
    Depleted uranium has nothing in common with nuclear weapons.
    Its a waste product left after enriched uranium is extracted from the raw, natural uranium.
    In is actually LESS radioactive then the natural uranium.

    Now it is highly poisonous, as are most all heavy metals.

    So no, delpeted uranium is not a nuclear weapon, just like cowshit is not beef.
