War in Ukraine: Evidence shows widespread use of cluster munitions in Kharkiv

Tetiana Ahayeva, a 53-year-old nurse, was standing in front of her building when the ammunition struck. “Suddenly there were fireworks everywhere, a lot, everywhere,” she told Amnesty. “We fell to the ground and tried to take cover. Our neighbor’s son, a 16-year-old boy named Artem Shevchenko, was killed on the spot. He had a 1 cm wide hole in his chest. His father had a crushed hip and a shrapnel wound in his leg.”
