TDC President for the 19FortyFive: The Paradox of Good Intentions – Cluster Bombs Debate

Maksym Skrypchenko, President of the Transatlantic Dialogue Center, recently wrote an opinion article for the 19FortyFive (1945).

In this paper, he explains the reasons for the U.S. supplying cluster munitions to Ukraine and discusses the opposition to this decision among human rights advocates. He emphasizes the manipulations carried out by Russia involving international human rights NGOs and propaganda aimed to influence the decision-making process. The continuing war in Ukraine with Russian asymmetric large military force makes it inadmissible to prolong Russian occupation and the suffering of the Ukrainian people. It means that the use of cluster munitions is contentious but has broader strategic consequences for future peace.
