By the way, the SBU stressed that all the collected evidence of the military crimes of the Russian occupiers will be transferred to the International Criminal Court in The Hague . All Russian war criminals will be brought to justice.
This is not the first time that Russia has used prohibited ammunition for strikes against Ukraine
The first instances of the use of prohibited weapons by Russian occupiers became known as early as early March. Since then, apparently, there is not a single segment of the front where active hostilities were conducted in Ukraine, and wherever weapons were not used by them. We are talking, in particular, about shelling by Russians with cluster and phosphorus munitions.
In particular, recently enemy cluster munitions hit a residential area of the Sinelnikovsky district, namely the Pokrovskaya territorial community in the Dnipropetrovsk region . Fortunately, no one was hurt among the civilian population at that time, but a fire broke out.
Thanks to intercepts by the SBU, it is also known about the constant strikes of infidels with phosphorus ammunition in the East of Ukraine. The invader admitted that the Russian command ordered to shell all Ukrainians without exception, including civilians.
