The UN has recorded evidence of cluster bombs during a full-scale Russian invasion. In particular, such bombs were purposefully dropped on the central city hospital in Vuhledar, Donetsk region, as a result of which four civilians were killed and 10 others were injured. In addition, the UN has recorded another case of cluster bombs in several districts of Kharkiv. As a result, nine civilians were killed, and 37 were injured.

Cluster bombs are special weapon that scatters small explosive munitions over the affected area. They, in turn, disperse and affect a much larger area. These bombs are deadly to civilians, even if dropped on military installations. 

Such bombs in civilian areas are a direct terror against civilians and are intended to destroy them.
