WW III Escalation: Russia Blames U.S. for “Terrorist Attack” on Civilians Using Cluster Bombs Supplied to Ukraine

by Brian Shilhavy, Health Impact News:

 

As most Americans enjoyed the beginning of the summer season here in the U.S. this weekend, many other places in the world experienced death and destruction as the current wars raging in Ukraine-Russia and in the Middle East seem to be taking a dramatic turn with some major escalations.

First, it is being reported that 124 people were injured, including 27 children with 2 children dying, in the Russian city of Sevastopol, where Russia claims that Ukraine used U.S.-made ATACMS long-range missiles armed with cluster bombs, a deadly type of bomb known for causing massive civilian deaths, and which are banned in most countries around the world.

Three people, including two children, died in the shelling, with more than 100 injured, the authorities have said.

The Ukrainian military has launched several US-made ATACMS long-range missiles armed with highly controversial cluster munitions on Russia’s Crimea, resulting in numerous civilian casualties, the Defense Ministry in Moscow has said.

The strike was first reported by Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev on Sunday, who said that the attack killed at least three people, including two children. According to Russia’s Health Ministry, 124 people were injured, including 27 children.

The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed the Ukrainian attack, which it said took place at around noon local time. Officials said that the shelling involved five ATACMS missiles, four of which were destroyed mid-air.

The remaining one, however, was damaged by air defenses, veered off course and detonated over the city of Sevastopol. As a result, the falling fragments of cluster munitions led to numerous civilian casualties, the statement read.

Сluster munitions – which scatter dozens of smaller bombs when denotated – are banned in more than 100 countries, including the UK, France, and Germany. This type of weapon is considered extremely dangerous to civilians, as the munitions typically spread over large areas and can remain unexploded in the ground for many years.

The US announced in July 2023 that it would provide Ukraine with cluster munitions, sparking outrage in Moscow. At the time, US President Joe Biden called the decision “very difficult” but justified, arguing that the deliveries were needed to fuel a Ukrainian counteroffensive that subsequently failed with heavy losses for Kiev.

Russia has said that the attack will not go unanswered.

Why US and Ukraine Deliberately Chose Russia’s Sevastopol for Terror Attack

At the moment when ATACMS were launched at Sevastopol a US RQ-4 Global Hawk long-range surveillance drone was detected over the Black Sea, according to military correspondent Aleksey Borzenko.

“This drone was practically used to direct the missiles that were going to Crimea,” Borzenko told Sputnik. “I believe that it is necessary to create a large unmanned zone in the Black Sea – between 100 and 300 miles – in the aftermath of the tragedy. These Global Hawks should not be allowed to get to the distance from which they could direct ATACMS missiles.”

Russia must give an adequate answer to the Ukraine terror attack on Sevastopol, given that the Kiev regime and Washington as openly defied Moscow’s warnings and “red lines”, according to Igor Korotchenko, editor in chief of National Defense magazine.

“First, attacks targeting key facilities of the energy structure of Ukraine – which ensures the stability of the rear of the Ukrainian Armed Forces – and their complete destruction should be carried out,” Korotchenko told Sputnik.

“The second thing that needs to be done is to establish a no-fly zone in the airspace over waters of the Black Sea, from which UK and US strategic reconnaissance drones are patrolling the territory of Crimea. These targets should be destroyed without reacting to possible statements and screams from London and Washington,” the pundit continued.

The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that it holds Washington and the Kiev regime responsible for the deliberate missile strike on Sevastopol civilians, as all targeting data for ATACMS missiles are provided to Ukraine by US specialists.

The ministry underscored that the attack will not go unanswered. (Source.)
