Description

Ukraine's military rejects reports that it has used banned #cluster #bombs in the six-month war against pro-#Russian forces in the country’s east. #HRW published a report on Monday, identifying 12 incidents in which cluster bombs killed six people in and around the eastern city of #Donetsk earlier this month. But the defense ministry spokesman on Tuesday dismissed the charges as groundless. The rights group said the widespread use of such munitions is highly inaccurate as they're spread over a wide area. According to Human Rights Watch, the evidence shows the cluster munitions were in several cases fired from the direction of the army-held territory. The use of cluster #munitions in populated areas may amount to war crimes.
