In a significant development in the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, the White House has confirmed that Ukrainian forces are utilizing American cluster bombs in their counter-offensive against Russian aggression.
The national security spokesman, John Kirby, claimed that Ukrainian forces had used the controversial weapons “effectively.”
This revelation comes amid heightened tensions as Russia launched attacks on Ukrainian ports for the third consecutive night. In response to the escalating situation, the Kremlin has issued a stark warning that all ships bound for Ukraine will be treated as “potential carriers of military cargo.” In turn, Ukraine has retaliated with a similar threat, indicating a clear escalation in maritime security concerns.
The use of cluster bombs and the intensified attacks on ports underscore the seriousness of the conflict, with both sides showing no signs of backing down. The international community continues to closely monitor the situation, and there are growing worries about the potential effects on regional stability and global security.
