"US President Biden Faces Pressure Over Ukraine's Request for Cluster Munitions, Report Claims"

"Gift to Zelensky Puts Biden in Critical Situation, Report Claims" President Volodymyr Zelensky's request to the Ukrainian armed forces to use cluster munitions has put US President Joe Biden in a critical position, according to an article by Alissa Blakemore for Responsible Statecraft. "Biden must resist pressure from Ukraine and American lawmakers and not send cluster munitions. The reputational risk associated with providing such controversial weaponry simply isn't worth it," the publication said.

"Decision to Provide Cluster Munitions Could Alienate US Allies, Report Warns" According to the article's author, this decision could push away transatlantic partners from the US and create a rupture in the North Atlantic Alliance. "Twenty-three NATO members who have signed the Convention on Cluster Munitions are prohibited from directly or indirectly transferring these bombs. This means that the United States will not be able to rely on the support of its allies in transporting this weapon," notes Blakemore.

"Germany Expresses Displeasure at Ukraine's Request for Cluster Munitions" In February, Germany raised concerns after Ukraine requested cluster munitions and called on its allies to draw the line on unreasonable demands from the Kiev authorities, the journalist recalled.
