Zelenskyy Calls Out Russia Over ‘Environmental Bomb of Mass Destruction’

  1. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has accused Russia of using cluster munitions in its war against Ukraine.
  2. Cluster munitions are banned by international law, and their use has caused widespread environmental damage in Ukraine.
  3. Zelenskyy has called on the United Nations Security Council to take action to stop Russia from using cluster munitions.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called out Russia for using a “new type of environmental bomb of mass destruction” in its war against Ukraine.

Zelenskyy made the remarks in a video address to the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday. He said that Russia has been using cluster munitions, which are banned by international law, in its attacks on civilian areas in Ukraine.

“These are cluster munitions,” Zelenskyy said. “They are a new type of environmental bomb of mass destruction. They are prohibited by international law, but Russia uses them against us.”

Cluster munitions are a type of ammunition that explodes in mid-air, releasing hundreds or even thousands of smaller submunitions. These submunitions can land anywhere within a wide area, making them indiscriminate and deadly.

Zelenskyy said that the use of cluster munitions by Russia has caused widespread environmental damage in Ukraine. He said that the munitions have contaminated land, water, and air, and that they have killed and injured civilians.

“Russia is waging a war against nature,” Zelenskyy said. “They are destroying our forests, our rivers, our soil. They are killing our animals and our birds. They are poisoning our air and our water.”

Zelenskyy called on the United Nations Security Council to take action to stop Russia from using cluster munitions in Ukraine. He said that the council must hold Russia accountable for its environmental crimes

“The Security Council must act now,” Zelenskyy said. “We must stop Russia from using cluster munitions. We must hold Russia accountable for its environmental crimes.”

The use of cluster munitions by Russia has been condemned by the international community. The United States, the European Union, and other countries have called on Russia to stop using the munitions.

The United Nations has also condemned the use of cluster munitions by Russia. The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has called on Russia to respect international law and to stop using the munitions.

The use of cluster munitions by Russia is a serious environmental crime. The munitions have caused widespread damage to the environment in Ukraine. They have also killed and injured civilians.

The international community must take action to stop Russia from using cluster munitions in Ukraine. The UN Security Council must hold Russia accountable for its environmental crimes.
