Russia has used modified cluster bombs as glide weapons against Ukrainian forces in the south of the war-torn country for the first time, new footage and reports appear to show.

In a clip widely circulating online, published on the Telegram messaging app by a Russian channel thought to be linked to Moscow’s military, what looks to be a cluster munitions strike across the Ukrainian countryside shows dozens of almost simultaneous explosions. However, there are few details available about the footage, and it could not be independently verified by Newsweek.
