As Russia labors to destroy Ukrainians’ will to fight as well as that nation’s cities, it is turning to weapons that have been labeled as “potentially a war crime.”
New videos have emerged that indicate Russia is using thermobaric rockets fired from a weapon known as the TOS-1A Solntsepek in its effort to break through Ukrainian resistance, according to the U.K.’s Mirror.
The outlet said it was uncertain whether the footage of the weapon, which can melt human organs, was taken in Ukraine or was being used for propaganda purposes.
