Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky condemned Russia on Thursday for deploying phosphorus missiles in his nation and urged NATO to deliver military support.
“This morning, by the way, phosphorus bombs were utilized. Russian phosphorus bombs. Adults were murdered again and children were massacred again,” Zelensky said during a video talk to the US-led military alliance.
Russian forces have been impeached for using a banned military tactic during the attack on Ukraine. White phosphorus munitions were deployed in the eastern town of Kramatorsk on Monday, according to the deputy head of Kyiv’s law.
Clip taken on phones and by an ITV film crew indicated a glittering light substance falling in from the sky onto the town below. Oleksiy Biloshytskiy dropped a video of material burning fiercely on the ground as it was stroked with a spade.
“Another practice of phosphorus ammunition in Kramatorsk,” he announces in the video. White phosphorous is utilized to effect rapid fires because of the forcefully it combusts with oxygen. Biden asserted the phosphorus attack as “a real threat” as he got to Europe to take part in a NATO summit on Wednesday.
The US has also repeated its alarm that Russia could be about to direct a ‘false flag’ attack to explain using chemical weapons. Biden has previously said Russia’s claim that Ukraine has biological and chemical weapons is a clear sign Mr Putin is considering using them. He has warned of severe consequences if they are deployed.
