On April 29, Russian troops attacked Odesa with an Iskander-M ballistic missile with a cluster warhead, killing 6 people. The use of such weapons is prohibited by the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which has been ratified by 112 countries, but their reaction to the attacks is unlikely to be what Ukrainians expect.

Ihor Koziy, an expert on military affairs at the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation, said this in an interview with OBOZ.UA. As an example, he cited the UN's reaction to Russia's invasion of Ukraine: the organization called Russia's actions aggression, but the occupying country has not yet been expelled from the UN Security Council.

And Russia got there as a successor to the USSR, it did not go through the official procedure of joining.

"As you say, what is the reaction of the world. By the way, how many colors does the world have? Only seven - 'Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain'. If the world seems white to you, it breaks down into seven colors, and it is not white at all. Therefore, when you expect a reaction from it, you must clearly understand from whom you expect a reaction. The German Chancellor is making fig signs, and you are happy," Koziy said.

He believes that Ukraine should pay more attention to counterintelligence and intelligence - these structures should be well funded so that they can both detect enemy "moles" and create their own agents in Russia, the United States, Germany, and other countries.

"And we pay more attention to ballistics, whether it will fly or not, whether it will fall or not. All decisions are made by people, and in big offices, and you have to understand that. Therefore, we need to allocate certain resources to recruit these people, to make them work for Ukraine, to provide all the information necessary for our country, to create the conditions necessary for us to restore the defense industry, and not to play along with the Russian Federation," the expert explained.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:
