The fire of incendiary munitions and phosphorus bombs on Bakhmut, the night video
Kiev: "They want to wipe the city off the face of the Earth." According to Ukraine, Russia has bombed the eastern city with weapons of war prohibited against civilians, by the Geneva Convention since 1980.
Night flashes that look like fireworks, then fire: they are incendiary munitions, and phosphorus bombs exploding,
fired - according to Ukrainian government sources - against the city of Bakhmut by Russia: the videos on the net on Ukrainian social media show the "traces" of light that are unleashed on the city of the East.
These are weapons of war that fall into the category of chemical weapons whose use against civilians has been prohibited by the Geneva Convention since 1980.
Petro Andriushchenko, advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, posted one of the videos and commented on social media: "Bakhmut. Phosphorus ammunition. Miserable. The same situation was in Mariupol. When they can't do anything, phosphorus ammunition is fired."
