DONETSK, November 6. /TASS/. Rescuers have found and destroyed cluster munitions of the Uragan multiple launch rocket systems, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Emergencies Ministry told TASS on Thursday.

Over the 24 hours rescuers also found and destroyed three 82-milimeter mortar shells and two hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers in Donetsk and the village of Veseloye, the ministry said.

In late October the international human rights organization Human Rights Watch headquartered in New York said the Ukrainian Armed Forces used cluster bombs in the populated areas of Donetsk region and violated international laws prohibiting use of such munitions. This can be described as war crimes, Human Rights Watch said.

Human rights activists said Ukrainian security forces delivered strikes on residential quarters with the use of the Uragan and Smerch multiple launch rocket systems.
