Evidence on the use of incendiary munitions in Ukraine and Syria defenders intend to unveil at the Geneva talks (which go from 10 to 14 November) under the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (Convention CCW). Speech defenders is scheduled for 14 am local time on 12 November.

HRW has previously published a report which said that Ukraine security forces used cluster munitions in populated areas of Donetsk in early October 2014. The use of cluster munitions in populated areas violates the laws of war and may be a war crime because this weapon strikes indiscriminately, noted human rights activist.
