Britain did not support the decision of US President Joe Biden to provide Ukraine with cluster shells.
Sky News writes about it.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said Britain “has signed a convention that bans the production or use of cluster munitions and discourages their use.”
“We will continue to do our part to support Ukraine against Russia’s illegal and unprovoked invasion, but we have done so by providing heavy battle tanks and, most recently, long-range weapons,” he added.
Some of his fellow Conservatives have gone even further: MP Tobias Ellwood called on the US to “reconsider.”
“This is the wrong call and it will repel international goodwill. Their use leaves deadly unexploded ordnance over the battlefield, killing and injuring civilians,” the British MP said.
