Russian forces launched an air and missile raid in west Ukraine over the weekend, striking an ammunition depot that caused a gargantuan explosion in the site.
The depot reportedly contained a stockpile of recently delivered British depleted uranium tank shells, which were also destroyed in the explosion, sending radioactive particles into the atmosphere of the Khmelnytsky region.
Footage captured by local media shows the scale of the massive explosion.

Slavyangrad reported that a spike in gamma radiation had been detected around the time of the Russian airstrike.
A clear spike in gamma radiation was detected in Khmelnitsky on or about May 12th, with emission continuing to rise the following day and remaining at the elevated level thereafter.
Considering how little gamma radiation comes from depleted uranium, this clear spike in gamma radiation in Khmelnitsky indicates that there was very large stockpile of the DU munitions that was destroyed, raising the uranium dust into the air.
By comparison, the towns of Ternopol, Khmilnik, and Novaya Ushitsa (images 3, 4, and 5) remained at their apparent regular, base levels. This indicates that the Khmelnitsky anomaly is indeed a spike and corroborates the claim that the stockpile in Khmelnitsky contained DU munitions. The map viewed is attached as the sixth image.

The Telegram channel Intel Slava reported that the radioactive explosion caused panic to spread among Ukrainian social media.
“It is worth noting that panic reports are spreading in Ukrainian social networks that during the detonation of an ammunition depot in Khmelnytsky, a large batch of British tank ammunition with depleted uranium, which was recently brought to Ukraine along with Storm Shadow missiles, was also destroyed. As a result of a huge explosion, particles of depleted uranium could be dispersed on the territory of the Khmelnytsky region, which, taking into account the experience of Yugoslavia and Iraq, could lead to an outbreak of cancer in the medium term.”
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. earlier this month blasted Britain for sending depleted uranium shells to Ukraine, calling it a “reckless escalation” in West’s proxy war with Russia.
“In another reckless escalation, Britain has confirmed delivery of depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine,” Kennedy wrote. “DU munitions should be banned. They partially vaporize on impact, poisoning the environment with uranium dust that causes cancer and horrific birth defects.”

This comes a week after an alleged failed assassination attempt against Russian President Vladimir Putin by a Ukrainian drone at his Kremlin residence last week.
The Russian attack may have also been retaliation for Ukraine’s drone strike counteroffensive on a Russian oil depot in Sevastopol, Crimea earlier this month.
