"Most often, the enemy utilizes grenades such as K-51, RGR, and the hand-held gas grenade Drofa-PM, which are dropped from UAVs. However, improvised explosive devices equipped with irritant substances are also employed. Additionally, artillery shelling containing chemically hazardous substances is carried out. On December 14, 2023, the use of a new type of special gas grenade, RG-VO, containing an unknown chemical substance, was detected," the post reads.
