Russian troops fired at the city of Pokrovsk, Donetsk region, with cluster rockets. The enemy, ignoring all international norms, struck a blow to the residential area and civilian infrastructure of the Ukrainian city.
This was reported in the press service of the Joint Forces Operation.
Fortunately, several cassettes that flew into the private homes of the city’s residents did not break.
The SES warns of the danger, because in these explosive devices are gel detonators. If they come out of the tape – are transferred to combat position and activate in the next 20 hours. They also react to temperature changes, so in no case these objects can be moved!
Strikes with cluster munitions, which hit a large area, are indiscriminate by definition, and therefore their use in populated areas is a war crime.
