Vacuum bomb or thermobaric bombs are incredibly destructive and is generally used to destroy defensive positions. Official communication about this weapon is yet to be confirmed. But a thermobaric multiple rocket launcher was spotted on the border of Ukraine on Saturday morning.
Vacuum bomb used on civilians are illegal
In their recent attack on Ukraine, Russia used an extensively harmful weapon that could vaporize human bodies. This weapon is said to have been used in as many as four schools in Ukraine. As reported by ABC News, when this weapon is used on civilians, it can be viewed as a war crime.
However, if the weapon is used on the soldiers or those they need to attack, the use of the vacuum bomb is not illegal in this sense. The Ukrainian ambassador expressed that Russia should pay heavily for the damage they are causing to Ukraine.
Russian rubel less than 1 cents in the dollar currency
In the ongoing attack on Ukraine, several organizations have imposed harsh sanctions on Russia. This has led to the Russian rubel being worth less than 1 cents in the dollar currency. The decline in their currency will spark much anger as this will no doubt mean higher inflation rates. And the vacuum bomb is set to make things worse.
Now, this vacuum bomb is extremely harmful. This is through the fact that it targets the organ with no way of being treated. As relayed by The Guardian, this vacuum bomb is a weapon that causes the air to be sucked out of your lungs when launched. This can be particularly dangerous when used on civilians.
The attack on the schools has so far received much disgust as this is one of the places the people of Ukraine are seeking refuge. Additionally, a logistics storage, about 300 meters from the school might have been the intended attack. The vacuum bomb is surely a horrific way to die.
