‘They used the vacuum bomb today. The devastation that Russia is trying to inflict on Ukraine is large,’ Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S. said

After a meeting with US lawmakers on Monday night, Oksana Markarova, Ukraine’s ambassador to the US, told reporters that Russia utilized the powerful vacuum bomb during its invasion of Ukraine. A vacuum bomb, also known as a thermobaric weapon, creates intense, high-temperature explosions by sucking in oxygen. If carried out on civilians, such an attack could be considered a war crime. “Today they utilized the vacuum bomb,” Markarova explained.

According to Sumy area administrative leader Dmytro Zhyvytskyy’s Telegram channel, the explosion damaged a Ukrainian army base in the northeastern town of Okhtyrka, killing 70 servicemen. The blow obliterated the central part of a big building, according to images from the scene. The attack was carried out with a vacuum bomb, according to Mayor Pavel Kuzmenko of Okhtyrka. Eyewitness video of the explosion, with a timestamp of 5:32 p.m. on Monday, was widely circulated in Ukrainian media. The White House in Washington stated that the instances had not been independently verified.
Jen Psaki, a White House spokeswoman, said, “I don’t have any confirmation of that.” “We’ve seen the reports,” says the narrator. If that’s the case, it could be considered a war crime.” Furthermore, when numerous thermobaric weapons are detonated at the same time, they reinforce one another, resulting in a greater, more lethal blast, according to Human Rights Watch. According to the study, people who are close to the blast can suffer injuries such as “blown eardrums and crushed inner ear organs, severe concussions, ruptured lungs and internal organs, and possibly blindness.”
