Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
Practice Relating to Rule 84. The Protection of Civilians and Civilian Objects from the Effects of Incendiary Weapons
At the Preparatory Conference for the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons in 1979, the USSR stated that it was “regrettable” that no agreement on restricting the use of incendiary weapons had been reached. It felt that the
draft revised at the second session extended the scope of the prohibition of the use of incendiary weapons, particularly against military objectives situated within a concentration of civilians, and might constitute a good point of departure for the future work of the Conference.
