Putin Says Russia Has ‘Sufficient’ Cluster Munitions For Tit-for-Tat

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, says his country has enough cluster munition to fight back in the event that Ukraine uses the weapons in the ongoing war.

Ukraine started receiving cluster weapons from the United States, a move that sparked concerns due to the long-term risk posed to civilians by bomblets that fail to explode.

The controversial weapons can disperse up to several hundred small explosive charges, which can remain unexploded in the ground.

The weapon is banned by numerous countries that are signatories to a 2008 Oslo Convention, to which neither Russia, the United States nor Ukraine are parties.
