On March 17, the RF Armed Forces fired cluster bombs at Kazachya Lopan, Kharkiv Region.

This was announced by the chairman of the Dergachev community Vyacheslav Zadorenko on Facebook .

“A few hours ago, the Russian army fired cluster bombs at Cossack Lopan. As a result, at least six people were killed, data on the number of injured are being investigated,” Zadorenko wrote.

According to him, the invaders bombed the railway station, shops, pharmacies and houses of civilians in the center of the village. At the same time, the military infrastructure facilities that the invaders placed in Kazachya Lopan, as well as the Russian military, were not affected.

Zadorenko recalled that the use of cluster bombs is prohibited by the 2008 Dublin Convention.

“All this testifies to a deliberate cynical provocation by the Kremlin occupiers in order to blame the Ukrainian side, sow panic and hatred of the local population towards the Armed Forces of Ukraine. I express my sincere condolences to the families of the victims. I am sure that the Cossacks are smart thinking people who will not succumb to the influence of the enemy You remember very well how our village developed under Ukraine, and you perfectly see what the “Russian world” has brought to our homes today – only pain, suffering, hatred and devastation, “Zadorenko wrote.

Earlier it was reported that the Russians were shelling Kharkov from jet systems and trying to break through Izyum.

  1. Putinazi savagery cannot be allowed to go on. Presumably even Biden has a red line? What is it? Why not spell it out?
    It should be on the lines of “unless you desist immediately from deliberate genocide of innocents, we will be forced to act.”

What is your opinion?
