Previously, the militia have repeatedly stated the use of phosphorus ammunition in eastern Ukraine. In particular, incendiary bombs shot at Semenovka village in the suburb of Slavyansk.
On July 25, Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Major General Viktor Posnikir, stated that phosphoric ammunition was used at least six times.
“Today we have reliable evidence that phosphorus-containing ammunition was used in the cities and towns of Ukraine mentioned above,” he noted. - It should be noted that phosphorus-containing ammunition was used in residential areas of settlements in which there were only civilians.
