HORROR footage allegedly shows Russia is using killer flesh-melting thermite bombs that can burn through flesh down to the bone.
The terrifying vision appears to show the night sky lit up by a chilling rain of sparkling, burning thermite, a killer chemical mixture.
The thermite was reportedly being fired by Russian Grad launchers using 9M22S incendiary rockets.
The clip, shared by various respected journalists in Ukraine, appears to have been filmed by a soldier in the National Guard unit in Donbas.
Journalist Euan MacDonald shared the footage and said in the caption: “Ukraine’s troops are facing some of the most savage, barbarous weapons ever devised.
“There’s no excuse not to quickly supply Ukraine with weapons to fight back with.”
Another journalist Illia Ponomarenko tweeted: “Thermite munitions used by Russia. Just imagine holding a line under this.”
Thermite, a mixture of metal powder and metal oxide is used in the making of incendiary bombs.
It burns at temperatures of more than 2,400C – being so hot it can burn through steel and concrete.
And if it comes into contact with human flesh, it can melt through right down to the bone.
