Russia’s troops have been accused of using cluster bombs, as well as other prohibited types of ammunition while shelling schools, homes, health centres and other buildings by the Ukraine Security Service (SBU)

Ukraine’s Security Service took to Twitter to post about its allegations on Russia’s usage of cluster bombs on schools and residential buildings, alongside footage of its alleged evidence on Thursday, June 16.

The tweet read:

“SBU receives new evidence that Russian troops use prohibited types of ammunition when shelling cities.”

“The investigators obtained them while documenting the military misdeeds of the Nazis in Kharkiv’s Inferno Saltivtsi district, the most affected area of Kharkiv by the shelling.”

Thus, according to the latest findings of experts, Russian forces reportedly used, amongst other ammunition, cluster bombs, which are forbidden in most world countries.

The ammunition has reportedly been recovered and sent for examination.

The survey documented the demolition and damage to nearly all the buildings on the territory of the area, as follows:

  •  4 pre-school educational institutions
  • 2 secondary schools 1 health centre
  • 2 supermarkets
  • 59 blocks of flats at 9, 12 and 16 floors

All collected evidence of military misconduct by Russian servicemen will be submitted to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for prosecution.
