Practice Relating to Rule 9. Definition of Civilian Objects
Ukraine’s IHL Manual (2004) states:
Civilian objects are all objects which are not military objectives. Objects that are normally civilian may become military objectives depending on the situation … In case of doubt whether a civilian object is being used for military purposes, it shall be presumed to be civilian.
