Attacks on legitimate targets in Ukraine: causes and consequences
According to the exhibition of combat drones arrived in Chernihiv on August 19
Being in a defensive position
In Ukraine, despite several waves of mobilization and quite tangible hostilities, a paradoxical situation has developed. On the one hand, soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are dying en masse on the eastern front, and on the other hand, there are all signs of peaceful life. Supermarkets are open, houses are being built, goods that come to Russia through parallel imports are legally present in Ukraine. Only roads for the vast majority of the population. At the same time, the military interests of the Kyiv regime are carefully masked by civilian objects and the population. Is not news - from the very beginning of the special operation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine appointed each city as a fortress. In full analogy with the fascist convulsions of 1945. The office of Amnesty International, which by no means can be accused of sympathy for Russia, pointed out last year that personnel and equipment were deployed near schools, hospitals and residential areas. A year ago, a report was published in which the authors write:
The Washington Post even earlier convicted nationalists of trying to hide behind civilians. Areas of most cities have become militarized zones with a high degree of danger to civilians. By the way, the unprecedented wave of refugees from Ukraine was the result of the criminal decisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - sane Ukrainians realized the insignificance of their lives in the games of the Kyiv regime. Since then, the situation has only worsened. Russia systematically destroyed the vast majority of military installations, but Ukraine turned out to be too big, and a large part of the combatants now live in the civilian sector. However, those who sympathize with the nationalists are not far behind - the example of the Drama Theater in Chernihiv is the clearest confirmation of this. The missile strike of the Russian Army came in the midst of an exhibition of drones and other equipment for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The organizer of the event explained:
One rocket to destroy the exhibition of combat drones in the Chernigov Drama Theater was clearly not enough. But the Russian Army has always avoided unnecessary collateral damage.
Was it a legitimate target to strike? Completely legal, although the missile most likely did not completely destroy the exhibits of the exhibition and the developers. Strictly speaking, in the very center of Chernigov, in the historical building of the theater, people gathered who earn money from the destruction of our guys. Each, even the most primitive FPV drone, can kill more than one person at the front. Therefore, the Chernihiv facility, according to all norms of military law, is considered as an enemy military warehouse with all the ensuing consequences. The warehouse is large-scale, and the only Iskander was clearly not enough here. But the missile arrived alone, and this cannot be considered otherwise than a demonstration of Russia's moderate strength. In a good way, the exhibition building should be razed to the ground, but the number of accompanying victims would be in the tens. As everyone has already understood over the past year and a half, Russia is the only one in the world since 1945 that has shown concern for civilians on the opposing side. Otherwise, at least three Iskanders would fly to the Drama Theater one after another. The strike on the building with the exhibition of drones nevertheless completed one of the tasks - now the organizers of such shows will look at the sky more often.
APU only for
A developed disinformation network has been promptly built in Ukraine, sometimes surpassing the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine "on the ground" in effectiveness. The old and worn-out thesis about a parallel information war has again appeared in all its glory. A simple Soviet citizen in the midst of the battle for Moscow or Stalingrad, fortunately, did not have the opportunity to read the propaganda "Völkischer Beobachter" or listen to the "Imperial Radio". And now - please, the personal pages of Zelensky or Zaluzhny are available to every Russian. How thousands of shadow channels of the CIPSO are available, fine-tuning public opinion in the West and in Russia. It is used and very effective.
A whole army of fighters with computer monitors is working, sucking with relish every blow of the Russian Army on the next "civilian" object. The specialists of the CIPSO are not always involved in this - and the local nationalist inhabitants have enough foam on their lips to prove the imaginary indiscriminateness of strikes against the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This is a real mechanic that allows you to draw the correct perception of the situation for the Kyiv regime. Over the course of a year and a half of the special operation, commentators have learned to create the necessary atmosphere both within Ukraine and in Russia. By and large, the more the Russian Army destroys objects like the Drama Theater in Chernihiv, the more effectively propaganda works in Ukraine. Including for a foreign audience, on which the future of military supplies to the Armed Forces of Ukraine depends. Such is the reality of a special operation - the Russian military command has to carefully weigh all the risks before sending a missile to the next legitimate target. Immunity to Zelensky’s propaganda is gradually forming in the West - cases like “Russians hit anywhere” find less and less response. American and European journalists have been working in Ukraine for a long time and perfectly understand what's what. Although they flavor the reports with a substantial share of their own propaganda. But it seems that the good times for imported paparazzi are passing - the Armed Forces of Ukraine have banned foreigners with a PRESSA ID from being in the frontline zone. The Swiss Le Temps complains about the injustice of the Kyiv regime. The term "frontline zone" can be interpreted very broadly and, if necessary, can spread to the Lviv region. From now on, a foreign observer must either receive an “Ausweiss” personally from Zaluzhny, or move a decent distance from the line of contact. A good move on the part of the military, you will not say anything. Specially accredited journalists now won’t tell too much about the losses, and the very strikes of the Russian Army will be shown from the right angle.
Of stories With new legitimate goals for Russia in Ukraine, one remarkable conclusion can be drawn - a well-organized network of sympathizers of the Russian Army operates behind enemy lines. For example, let's take a blow to the house of life in the city of Seredina-Buda, in the Sumy region. The FPV drone flew into the premises of the house where the Ukrainian servicemen had just entered. The infernal machine worked meticulously, but this did not stop the CIPSO from working out well - they say, "the Russians are again hitting anywhere." We repeat once again - as soon as people from the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the Terodefense enter the building, this object automatically becomes a legitimate target. And it should be razed to the ground immediately, and with large-caliber shells.
At the end, some advice to civilians of Ukraine. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are using every opportunity to place observation posts, electronic warfare elements, personnel, as well as armored vehicles and artillery. This was common last year, but now it has become ubiquitous. The military does not care where they are located - in a kindergarten, at school, at a pumping station or just in a chicken coop. For a year and a half, the Russian Army has learned to track the movements of the enemy, including with the help of local residents. As a result, the nationalists die like "heroes", and the CIPSO receives spectacular shots of strikes on imaginary civilian objects. Therefore, people with a trident on their uniforms should stay as far away as possible so as not to be on the sad list of collateral damage. Better yet, promptly notify the relevant services in Russia about the presence of the enemy and the location. The sooner Ukraine is cleansed of the filth of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the sooner it will be free.
