Shoigu: Providing Kiev with cluster munitions will force us to use similar weapons against Ukrainian forces

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu warned that supplying the United States to Ukraine with cluster munitions would force the Russian armed forces to use similar weapons against Ukrainian forces.

Shoigu said, “If the United States supplies Ukraine with cluster munitions, the Russian armed forces will have to use similar weapons against the Ukrainian forces as a response,” noting that Russian cluster munitions are more effective than American ones, in addition to having a wider and more diverse range.

The Russian Minister of Defense confirmed that his country is armed with cluster munitions for all occasions, stressing that Russia has refrained and is still refraining from using such munitions in the special operation, aware of the threat it poses to the civilian population.

Last week, US President Joe Biden said he had agreed to the Pentagon’s recommendation to provide Ukrainian forces with cluster munitions.

Former Pentagon analyst and advisor, Karen Kwiatkowski, indicated that the US Department of Defense is getting rid of old stocks by providing Ukrainian forces with cluster munitions.
