According to Collective Awareness to UXO, the type of bomb is 'a thick cased, high-explosive (HE,) fragmentation aircraft bomb designed to produce a large number of lethal fragments effective at long distances and blast overpressure for destructive effect at shorter distances'.

Mariupol's Azovstal steel plant has already been subject to bombing according to Ukraine.

On Sunday, 15 May, an aerial video posted to social media showed an attack on the plant. Ukraine accused Russia of using phosphorus bombs.


Despite 90 percent of Mariupol having been destroyed since Putin first sent troops across the border on 24 February, marking the first day of his 'special military operation' against the country, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy has vowed to try his best to hold next year's Eurovision in the city.
