Depleted uranium that was contained in the American weapons used during the Desert Storm military operation in the Persian Gulf in 1991 does not pose a threat of radioactive pollution to Kuwait, a country neighbouring on Iraq.
This statement is contained in the report of the International Atomic Energy Agency /IAEA/ published on Monday by the IAEA Secretariat in Vienna ahead of the Board of Managers' session. The session will consider the report of the Agency's Director General Mohammed El Baradei "On Iran's nuclear safety".
According to the report's authors, "IAEA inspectors found in Kuwait remains of depleted uranium contained in the American weapons during the Persian Gulf war, but at present this substance does not pose a threat to Kuwaiti population's health".
Ukraine has begun to use new tactics in the conduct of hostilities in the Donbass, which creates problems for the Russian army during the offensive. This was told by military historian Yuri Knutov. The expert called the tactic "very interesting."
