The cluster bomb confirmation has not been officially made by Donetsk authorities

[ Editor’s Note: This is the worst combat footage I have seen so far from this war. Dead kids is definitely a bummer, but for the Ukie guys that fired the Tochka missile at the time of day when the old folks are out doing their shopping, a special place in hell awaits them.
This appears to me to be an angry army commander wanting to get some licks in by targeting a “can’t miss” target like downtown Donetsk, and kill the parents and grandparents of those fighting Kiev.
We see now why the two Republics evacuated the women and children earlier so that they would not be in this video. But as you will see, a lot of the old folks stayed.
The good news about the Tochka is it leaves lots of evidence around, as the lower part with the engine and fuel can always be found with its serial number, as this one was.
We have news the incoming missile was hit by anti-aircraft fire, hence the wreckage was spread out due to that. The early story mentioned cluster munitions, possibly due to no big single crater from a large warhead that I could see in Lancaster’s video.
The Donetsk forensic people have a lot of experience after so many years of this, so we will have a full postmortem report from everything they collected today… Jim W. Dean ]
