Journalist’s death prompts Russian outrage over Ukraine’s alleged use of cluster bombs

A Russian war reporter was killed and three others were wounded in Ukraine’s southeastern Zaporizhzhia region. The defence ministry claimed that the journalists were attacked by Ukraine using cluster munitions. Rostislav Zhuravlev, who worked for state news agency RIA, died during the transfer. However, the ministry did not provide evidence to support this claim, and RushHourDaily was unable to verify it. It is worth noting that Ukraine recently received cluster bombs from the United States, but they have stated that they will only use them against enemy soldiers. Cluster munitions are banned in many countries due to their potential harm to civilians, as they disperse bomblets that can cause shrapnel injuries and may remain active for years. Russian politicians expressed outrage over the alleged use of cluster munitions, blaming both Ukraine and the United States. However, it is important to acknowledge that Russia has also been documented using cluster bombs in the war by human rights groups and the U.N. Human Rights Watch reported in May that Russian forces had caused civilian casualties and damaged infrastructure with these weapons. The White House defended Ukraine’s use of cluster munitions, stating that they were being used appropriately and effectively against Russian formations. Additionally, the governor of Russia’s Belgorod region claimed that Ukraine had fired cluster munitions at a village inside Russia, but without causing casualties or damage. No visual evidence was provided to support this claim.
