War in Ukraine


Sidharth Kaushal, a missile expert at the Royal United Services Institute (Rusi), said: "The impact mark is pretty consistent with a sub-munition like the 9N24, a Soviet-era cluster munition that can be carried by the Tochka missile." He pointed to the fairly shallow central crater and the radiating fragmentation marks that appear to be in one direction, which is consistent with sub-munitions of that shape. "This is very consistent with the impact point of a fragmentation sub-munition - so a cluster bomb was used."
