It is noted that before the artillery attacks, the military “carried out a flyer distribution” of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with calls to lay down their arms and surrender. These leaflets emphasize that voluntary surrender will keep the Ukrainian army alive and prevent further senseless bloodshed.
The department clarified that the BM-21’s propaganda projectile is a rocket projectile with a warhead, in which rolls of more than a thousand leaflets are loaded instead of submunitions and explosives. The fuzes are fired according to the time calculated for the distance the projectile must travel.
After tearing, the leaflets are scattered over an area of more than one square kilometer.
