An apparent cluster munitions strike hit Kherson in Ukraine.

Human Rights Watch said today that Russian forces appear to have used cluster munitions on civilian populated areas of Kherson at least three times since they retreated from the city, resulting in civilian casualties. These were part of a series of attacks on the city that resulted in civilian casualties.

Human Rights Watch’s associate crisis and conflict director, Belkis Wille, says that Kherson residents have been subject to new, indiscriminate attacks, including cluster munitions since they were liberated from eight months of Russian occupation.

“Residents of Kherson survived eight months of Russian occupation, and are finally free from fear of torture, only to be subjected to new indiscriminate attacks, apparently including cluster munitions,” said Belkis Wille, associate crisis and conflict director at Human Rights Watch.
