Fortunately, this Ruscist's attack did not result in civilian casualties or infrastructure destruction."

For reference: Incendiary ammunition is prohibited, and it cannot be used in or near cities.

It is allowed to use incendiary ammunition at military facilities only if they are remote from civilian areas.

Using flammable and combustible materials, such ammunition is used to start mass fires in areas with dry vegetation cover.
