Human Rights Watch has accused Ukraine of using banned anti-personnel landmines against invading Russian forces, saying almost 50 civilians, including five children, had been wounded.

Ukraine's defence ministry insisted the army upholds its treaty obligations against mines, but will not comment on the types of weapons used until the war ends.

Spokesman for the UN secretary general Farhan Haq said in New York, that It's clear that when there's any chance that armaments are being used that caused such casualties.
