Reminder: Mykolaiv is closer to Romania, which is in the EU and NATO, than Mykolaiv is to Russia. The US State of Alaska is far closer to Russia, than Mykolaiv is to Russia.

As reported by:
“Anna Zamazeyeva // Mykolaiv Regional Council

Operational information from the head of the Mykolaiv Regional Council on humanitarian issues of the region

Hitting a public transport stop with cluster shells! Such a morning in Mykolaiv…

❗️ Purposeful destruction of the civilian population. The terrorist acts of the Russian Federation continue…

So far, 5 dead, 7 wounded. Seven ambulance teams left for the city of the hit.

Mykolaiv is under constant fire! Reporting on hitting warehouses with ammunition, the occupiers destroy civilians by shelling residential buildings, humanitarian aid distribution points, and populated cities.

Condolences to the families of the victims 🕯

We thank our rescuers, doctors, who continue to save people under shelling 🙏🏻

We believe in the ZSU 🇺🇦 [Armed Forces of Ukraine]”

A cluster munition is a form of air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that releases or ejects smaller submunitions. Commonly, this is a cluster bomb that ejects explosive bomblets that are designed to kill personnel and destroy vehicles. Other cluster munitions are designed to destroy runways or electric power transmission lines, disperse chemical or biological weapons, or to scatter land mines. Some submunition-based weapons can disperse non-munitions, such as leaflets. Because cluster bombs release many small bomblets over a wide area, they pose risks to civilians both during attacks and afterwards. Unexploded bomblets can kill or maim civilians and/or unintended targets long after a conflict has ended, and are costly to locate and remove. Cluster munitions are prohibited for those nations that ratified the Convention on Cluster Munitions, adopted in Dublin, Ireland, in May 2008. The Convention entered into force and became binding international law upon ratifying states on 1 August 2010, six months after being ratified by 30 states.[1] As of 10 February 2022, a total of 123 states have joined the Convention, as 110 states parties and 13 signatories.[2]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_munition
