A depot of depleted uranium munitions sent by the West was destroyed by a Russian bombing and as a result a "radioactive cloud" was formed moving towards Europe. This was said by the head of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, quoted by the RIA Novosti agency. According to Patrushev, an increase in radioactive levels has already been detected in Poland.
Patrushev does not say where the bombing allegedly took place, but in recent days images have circulated on Telegram channels of a Russian attack that took place on May 13 in the Khmelnitsky region, west of Kiev, which resulted in a giant black cloud in the shape of an atomic mushroom. Various Russian media also discussed the possibility that depleted uranium munitions could be exploded. In recent days, according to information provided by the Ministry of Defense in Moscow, Russian bombings on weapons depots from NATO countries have multiplied in Ukraine with the aim of blocking the announced counteroffensive by Kiev.
Polish atomic agency, no emergency in Europe "We have not received any notification of radiological emergency", the Polish Atomic Agency writes on its website, explaining that it is "in constant contact with the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Ukrainian Nuclear Regulatory Authority (SNRIU)" and has access "to the International Early Radiation Emergency Notification System (USIE)". After the "false information on the danger of radiation in Poland" the Agency explains that "the situation in the country is normal": the peaks "observed in recent days in Poland, but also in the rest of Europe, are not unusual" and "occur regularly" with the rains.
