The war in Ukraine has entered a deadly new phase as death falls from the sky, with both Russia and Ukraine resorting to cluster bombs.
Cluster bombs are indiscriminate, inaccurate weapons that cause catastrophic civilian harm. For that very reason, over 100 countries came together in 2008 to ban the use of cluster bombs through an international treaty.
And you guessed it — the United States is not one of the signers of the treaty. Neither are Russia and Ukraine.
Witnessing the catastrophic harm caused by cluster bombs in Ukraine today reminds us that we urgently need the United States to show overdue leadership by banning the use of these weapons. We have a small window of opportunity to push President Biden to once and for all join the ban on cluster bombs — sign now to help us pile on the pressure!
