Russia shelled Kharkiv with banned munitions
According to the report “Anyone can die at any time: indiscriminate attacks by Russian troops in Kharkiv, Ukraine,” prepared by the international human rights organization Amnesty International, Russian troops have killed hundreds of civilians in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, shelling residential areas with banned cluster munitions and unguided rockets.
Amnesty International found evidence that Russian troops repeatedly used scatterable land mines and 9N210 / 9N235 cluster munitions prohibited by international law.
“Russian forces have repeatedly launched devasting and indiscriminate strikes using internationally banned cluster bombs on populated residential areas, killing and injuring scores of civilians. In barrage after barrage, men, women, and children have been killed and injured in their homes and streets, in playgrounds and cemeteries, while queueing for humanitarian aid or shopping for food,” the report reads.
