Fake Ukraine does not have the right to use cluster munitions as it has signed the convention

Anonymous telegram channels and media broadcasting pro-Kremlin rhetoric spread information that the Joseph Biden administration decided to supply Ukraine with cluster munitions banned by the convention in 2008. Russian propaganda notes that Ukraine signed this document, however, despite this, the Ukrainian military will use them to attack Russian cities. And this type of weapon is dangerous for civilians after the war, if the ammunition does not explode. It's fake.

The case drew the attention of specialists from the VoxCheck project. US presidential adviser Jake Sullivan said that since the beginning of a full-scale invasion, Russia has been using cluster shells, which in 30-40% of cases do not explode. The Convention on Cluster Munitions was created in 2008 and has been signed by 123 countries. However, Ukraine, the US and Russia are not signatories. Joseph Biden also explained that this type of weapons will be transferred to Ukraine due to the lack of other ammunition. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov noted that the Ukrainian military will not use cluster munitions on the territory of Russian settlements and will keep a strict record of use and localization, so that these territories can be cleared later.

Thus, the Russian propaganda is trying to discredit the Ukrainian army and government, noting that it is in Ukraine that the terrorists are and they want to destroy the Russians. Russia is trying to portray itself as a victim, but it is it who commits the crimes. Earlier, Detector Media talked about the message that if the United States provides Ukraine with cluster munitions, Russia will have no choice but to use them in response on the territory of Ukraine.
