On January 29, Russian occupants in the Tavriya sector used ammunition containing toxic substances, likely grenades with chlorpicrin, according to Oleksandr Stupun, the spokesperson of the joint press center of the Tauride Defence Forces.

«The enemy continues to violate the rules of warfare by using ammunition with poisonous substances, of chemical origin. Five such attacks were registered yesterday. These are probably K-51 grenades with chlorpicrin. Each case is investigated separately, relevant analyses are carried out, and then it is submitted to international institutions», — Stupun reported

He highlighted that it is highly undesirable for this gas to enter dugouts. However, Stupun added that a standard gas mask provides protection against chloropicrin.

Earlier, Captain Andriy Rudyk, a representative of the Centre for Research of Trophy and Advanced Weapons and Military Equipment, explained that Russian occupiers are increasing the use of ammunition with chemicals and are increasingly deploying a new type of grenade.

As of the morning of January 30, the losses of Russian troops and their mercenaries in Ukraine amounted to approximately 384,140. Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian defenders neutralized at least 960 Russian occupants.
