The Armed Forces of Ukraine used banned anti-personnel mines “Petal” during the attacks on Donetsk

DONETSK, July 28 – RIA Novosti. The territorial defense headquarters of the DPR said that the Ukrainian troops used the banned anti-personnel mines “Lepestok” during the attacks on Donetsk.

Earlier, the DPR office at the GCC reported that three shots were fired at Donetsk by Ukrainian troops on Thursday night.

“The VFU (armed formations of Ukraine – ed.) attacked the Kyiv and Kuibyshevsky districts of Donetsk, many mines of the PMF” Lepestok “were laid under the feet of the inhabitants of the city,” said the defense headquarters.

In 2005, Ukraine ratified the Ottawa Convention, which prohibits the use, stockpiling and production of anti-personnel mines. Thus, Kyiv violates its international obligations.

Anti-personnel high-explosive mine (PFM-1) “Petal” is designed to injure the legs and works when a person steps on it. It is installed on the ground through remote mining. A special cunning of a mine for civilians is that, because of its unusual shape, unfamiliar people see no danger in it. The mine is almost an exact replica of the American BLU-43/B Dragontooth mine.
