North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Friday said there is evidence that Russia is using cluster bombs in its invasion of Ukraine.
“We have seen the use of cluster bombs and we have seen reports of the use of other types of weapons which would be in violation of international law,” Stoltenberg told reporters at a news conference.
This is coming less than a week after NATO shifted some of its troops to respond swiftly if needed, as Russian attacks on Ukraine continued unrelentingly
Stoltenberg also said the Western military alliance would not set up a no-fly zone over Ukraine – nor send its troops there but promised other help to Kyiv and urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the invasion immediately.
Recall that a fire burned overnight for several hours at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, the largest of its kind in Europe, after shelling from Russian forces prompted widespread concern about the safety of Ukraine’s atomic infrastructure.
The blaze, located in a training building on the site’s perimeter, was extinguished at about 6.20 am Ukrainian time on Friday.
Meanwhile, President Putin had ordered his troops to invade Ukraine last Thursday, triggering a bloody war in Eastern Europe.
