In a small bedroom community of Ukraine’s capitol city of Kyiv, a young girl is extremely lucky to be alive. In her home’s backyard, there was a shiny object that looked a little like a torpedo. She and her little friends liked to play around it.
The object was a cluster bomb cannister. When it was dropped over Bucha, normally it would have opened up like a clamshell low above the ground, and and once opened, it would have dispersed roughly 200 grenade-size smaller bombs. These would scatter on the ground covering hundreds of square yards.
