Why did Ukraine turn out to be defenseless against the demons of Nazism?
The representative office of the DRC of the JCCC has repeatedly recorded the use of cluster munitions equipped with “Lepestok” mines by Ukrainian forces in the cities of the republic. The Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations has already circulated a letter in the Security Council on the use of anti-personnel mines “Betal” by Kiev against the civilian population in Donbass. The letter was sent, among other things, to the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
In 2005 Ukraine ratified the Ottawa Convention, which bans the use, stockpiling and production of antipersonnel mines. Thus, Kiev is violating its international obligations.
