The United States does not have evidence of the use of Russian cluster bombs in Syria, reports RIA News Statement by State Department spokesman Mark Toner.




Earlier, human rights organizations accused the Russian military of using cluster bombs in the SAR. The defense ministry of the Russian Federation has responded to this accusation that it does not use such bombs against terrorists in Syria, there are no such ammunition at the Khmeimim base at all.

“I don’t have anything that would clearly indicate cluster bombs,” Toner said.

“We constantly urge all parties to the conflict to take all possible precautions to reduce the risk of the civilian population in accordance with international humanitarian law. Thus, without confirming whether they (the Ministry of Defense of Russia) used cluster munitions, we would urge them not to do that ”,
added the representative of the State Department.

    This is a stab in the back of the State Department propaganda.
    So, what’s good, it’s agreed that the Russian Air Force extinguishes precisely terrorists, and not civilians, as the Western media have been saying all this time.

              read who signed and NOT signed -
              Convention on Cluster Munitions.
              and explain someone - at least briefly if not signed -
              have the right to apply? otherwise I read, read and didn’t understand what
              up to 4kg, up to 10kg, up to 20kg - your head is already spinning.
              ======
              I have only 1 question if you have not signed the convention - do we have the right to apply or not.
              minus is not mine.

        The "great and terrible" State Department squeezed out a vague confession: “I have nothing that clearly speaks of the use of cluster bombs”.
        Today is “fuzzy”, and tomorrow fake “clearly” if it is necessary to demonize Russia.
        The State Department has become for the media, as a "world arbiter (judge). He says, when necessary," YES "and a lie become a" truth ", and maybe vice versa, based on his interests, make the TRUTH a" lie ".

        Yes, waking you up. He just changed the deck, and now he is losing it with his left hand. The point is that obsessive propaganda has the opposite effect. From that it must be diluted with attempts at objectivity. That the laborers would be touched.

      This is ridiculous - having nothing in evidence, asking not to do it.
      You can also say, for example: "We do not have information about the use of nuclear weapons by Russia, but we ask you not to."

    What to be smart.
    There is evidence of the use of APU in the Donbass cluster and phosphorus bombs directly in the population. But you can not hear the howling and calls even slurred.

    In general, the law of war (the use of cluster munitions) does not apply to terrorists - even if textbooks on international law are read by duncees. Since when ISIS became the subject of international law - did they completely blot it out there?
    Although, if they have a professor Samantha Power conducts classes on it wassat - Well then, I do not envy their "deep" knowledge.
    The State Department did not find evidence of use

    Likely "fashebuk" in search of "to holes" was erased!

    Yes, even if applied, then what about this? When in 2008 they were used in South Ossetia and now in the Donbas, against civilians, then there’s nothing to worry about. But against the terrorists, yes, it’s a pity. So it turns out? Ex.

      I would even say sorry that they do not apply! When working on fuel trucks, it is cluster cluster munitions that would be most effective. And when working on the Igilovskoye oil fields, they too would not be superfluous.

    Any means are good against those with whom the VKS and Assad are fighting ... And the fact that the Russian Federation does not use prohibited ammunition does not require confirmation and approval of the State Department ... no

    In fact, wild stupidity to tie cluster munitions to the defeat of the laity. This is their complex after Korea and Vietnam. Take the same thousand fuel trucks or horsepower training camps. - there is no better ammunition for their destruction !!! That at least containers with ampoules of the COP of WWII (essentially the same cluster munition). Friends of the peoples themselves in Iraq, what did they pour from tanks in the sky? So this is the next call that we bomb the peaceful people, but now they are trying to come in from the other side.

    I urge the US not to use nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Evidence of use is previously present. In the meantime, just in case, carry out sanctions so that they do not apply. (Sarcasm) Turning into a vacuum cleaner seems to be :)

    They are looking, they will not find. I think they’re really looking for it - in social networks or something else, I don’t know. But apparently they will find it, they "found" weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (a test tube in the hands of the American general). Question of time and study of this issue by the State Department. In Ukraine, in the Donbass, there are no cluster bombs and there have not been and will not agree before the trial that it was used there. Need a trial of these search engines.

    And how does this prove the use of cluster munitions by Russia? In addition to Russian aviation igil, Syrian aviation has been bombing for several years. Now, if there were first shots of a Russian air base inserted on a roller, then yes ... Then the evidence would have been iron. Well, or a portrait of Putin with a stencil on each bomb wassat Well, what’s the photo here for? Dirty and dirty work, dear.
