Rockets with a thermobaric warhead are used. We cannot confirm the presence of these weapons in Ukraine, nor can we provide any evidence.

This announcement comes just as Defense Secretary Ben Wallace announced that the UK government would send more weapons to Ukraine including new anti-tank missiles.

He informed MPs that the UK had delivered 3,615 anti tank (NLAW) weapons, and that a “small consignment of Javelin antitank missiles” will be coming soon.

To help Ukraine’s forces defeat President Putin’s air force, he said that the Russians were “changing their tactics” and that the Ukrainians should too.
