Recently International Watchdog organization Human Right Watch reported the facts of usage of cluster munitions in Ukraine in the Donbas area.

This type of weapons is officially banned in 83 countries since 2008 when the Convention of Cluster Munitions was ratified.

Ukrainian authorities deny any usage of illegal weapon in the area of anti-terrorist operation. Spokesperson for National Security and Defense Council said the following: ‘During the anti-terrorist operation Ukrainian military did not use the weapons banned by International legal acts, this also concerns cluster bombs’.

Meanwhile there was evidence that Russian had supplied separatists with such type of weapons.
