Ukraine denies using cluster munitions in East
Article by: Peter Dutczyn

The headquarters of the anti-terrorist operation has denied using cluster munitions, Inter TV reported at midday Kyiv‬ time today. The international organization Human Rights Watch has reported the use of such munitions by the Ukrainian‬ army. The organization’s employees conducted a research in the combat zone. Experts obtained evidence that this type of weapon was used during shelling in Donetsk Oblast, the report added. This is why the organization did not rule out the possibility of the munitions being used by Ukrainian troops.

ATO spokesman Vyacheslav Seleznyov told the channel by phone: “The position of the headquarters of the anti-terrorist operation is unanimous. First, we are not using cluster munitions in the anti-terrorist operation. Second, under no circumstances do we shell residential areas and those places and objects where civilian residents of Donbas are located. Our goal is the militants and their locations.”
