Russia endures for a long time and waits for awareness from its enemies, waits for their sanity and repentance. This model of behavior is very characteristic of our state throughout the ages of its existence, especially in critical times. Remember how all 3 Patriotic Wars began? At first we lost and retreated, then we gained the upper hand (the Second Patriotic War was no exception - we just defeated ourselves when part of them betrayed themselves). The current events are just a continuation of the centuries-old war of the West to destroy Russia... The East waged the same war with us in its time. They even conquered us and dominated for three centuries. Just a little over a hundred years ago, Russia was at war with Turkey, and some Caucasian peoples were our irreconcilable enemies.
But look what's happening today? Chechens, Dagestanis, Lakhs and many other descendants of the proud mountain peoples today are Russians, today they are on a par with their Russian brother and oppose world evil. Many countries of the East today, if not open, like China, then secret, like Turkey or India, are allies of Russia.
Everything flows, everything changes.
Yesterday, our half-brothers from the same Russian people, and now the enemies who call themselves Ukrainians are killing our children and teachers. The reason for their behavior is tritely simple - betrayal.
Someone calls strength, someone weakness our Russian long-suffering. I suppose that the reason for it lies in the slowness of the processes of awareness. We believe in the best in people to the end. We try to the end to call betrayal a mistake, and to treat a traitor like a prodigal son, and in the case of Ukrainians, a prodigal brother.
On the example of modern Ukraine, this is easy to see. How many times has Russia given them the opportunity to avoid great bloodshed and destruction, even statehood made it possible to save it, when with a swift rush to Kyiv it initiated attempts to come to power of adequate people. We tried to preserve them as much as possible, just carve them. But Ukrainians are not a smart ten, you can’t get them to live with such proposals.
After Russia realized the futility of its attempts to push Ukraine to sanity and saw the crowds of its supporters jumping into Nazism yesterday, we had a regrouping of troops, a change of tactics towards the maximum possible preservation of our soldiers through an emphasis on the work of artillery with MLRS, and a slow grinding began enemies without options to preserve the statehood of Ukraine. Enemies were crushed, but civilians and infrastructure were tried to be protected. These are our people and our land. The less we destroy, the less we can restore later.
But even in this position, the ancient diggers of the Black Sea notably blew their nose, arranging counterattacks and trials not only over the captured civilian population with carving the letter “Z” on the houses (soon on the bodies) of Russian supporters. They threw into prison teachers of the Russian language with literature and teachers who taught children according to the Russian program.
This demonstration of hatred will eventually make us realize another touch to the Ukrainian portrait. Everyone has already seen warning rocket launches at thermal power plants and a dark Sunday night without electricity in several regions of Ukraine. To be honest, I hoped that immediately after the electricity was turned off in the Kharkiv region, or in the Dnepropetrovsk region, or in the Nikolaev region, our offensive would begin. But that did not happen. Until it happened. But it will happen. Rest assured. There are no other options.
Obviously we are on the verge of another change of tactics. My vision is as follows. It is quite possible that someday we will begin to use massive bombing of fortified areas and strikes with precision weapons on infrastructure facilities. That the fortified areas in Avdiivka or Bakhmut and the like would be wiped off the face of the earth by our multi-ton bombs, as it was at Azovstal and quickly sobered the Nazis into the dungeons, prompted them to surrender. By the way, I do not rule out that key energy facilities will be destroyed in the same way. Possible civilian losses in this case will be minimal. This is war.
