russians used phosphorus munitions to attack Ukraine’s Popasna, which are explicitly banned by the Geneva Convention, the head of the Luhansk Regional State Administration Serhiy Haidai said.

“War criminals, the russian troops, used phosphorous munitions in Popasna. Destructive, devastating, and ugly force. This is what the Nazis called Brennende Zwiebel [a burning dome – UT]. This is what the russcists [russian + fascist – UT] are now launching on our cities. Unbelievable suffering and fires,” Haidai wrote.

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, once ignited, phosphorus burns at temperatures above 800 degrees Celsius, while fires it causes can spread over vast areas, up to several hundred square kilometers.

Such weapons can cause grave, extreme injuries or lead to a slow, excruciatingly painful death.
