Russian military using rockets to launch 'propaganda' leaflets

The Russian military is firing Grad rockets with warheads filled with “propaganda” leaflets at Ukrainian positions, the Russian Defense Ministry said early Wednesday morning. 

The Russian military said that it was engaging in a special campaign to encourage Ukrainian soldiers to surrender, "which will subsequently save their lives and prevent senseless bloodshed in further battles."

The Grad rockets reportedly have a timed fuse set to burst the warheads and scatter the propaganda leaflets over an area of more than one square kilometer.
