The journalist posted photos of the RPG-29 shells, specifically the thermobaric explosive projectiles TBG-29V, explaining that the ammunition is now used by Russia-backed militants against the Ukrainian army in Zaitsevo village, Donetsk region.  

The Russian-made ammunition is designed to destroy the manpower; Ukraine’s Armed Forces don’t have any of such ammunition at their disposal, Roman Bochkala stressed.

‘Aren’t these new pieces of proof of the Russian aggression? These deadly things are supposed to kill PEOPLE – not the vehicles, not the buildings, but people. That’s not really humane; perhaps, that kind of ammunition is even prohibited. A flash strikes, then the light fades slowly, leaving fire everywhere. A man in the epicenter of that explosion has no chance to survive – all he gets is horrible burns and death’, Bochkala posted at Facebook.
