Ukraine Conflict
Moscow launched a special military operation in Ukraine in February 2022 with the aim of saving the people of Donbass - primarily the Russian-speaking population - from Kiev's constant attacks.

UN Concerned Over Delivery of Cluster Munitions to Ukraine

Сluster munitions are outlawed by 108 countries, but the US has nonetheless opted to send such munitions to Ukraine.
The United Nations is very concerned by the US decision to deliver cluster munitions to Ukraine, UN Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu said on Tuesday.

“Reports related to the transport and use of cluster munitions throughout the war, are also very concerning. The Secretary General has repeatedly called for an immediate end to the use of cluster munitions, in line with his long -standing position. These weapons must be consigned to history,” Nakamitzu said during a UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine.

Russia has repeatedly slammed Western supplies of cluster munitions to Ukraine, terming their us as inhumane and responsible for the death of journalists covering the Ukraine conflict. Notably, Sputnik war correspondent Rostislav Zhuravlev died in the zone of the special military op in July. His wounds resulted from the cluster munitions exploding.
