Do russians really believe that the terroristic assaults on civilian infrastructure will help? It has nearly zero military meaning. I would say the effect will probably be the opposite of what they want. It only increases the anger and number of volunteers willing to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

That's the thing about terrorism - it's usually just designed to destabilize more than it is to achieve a "goal."

Only thing is that it'll be rough as hell without power in January. But Ukrainians are tough as shit so I'd imagine you're correct.

Recently i had a discussion with my dad and he thinks Ukraine is in a SEVERE bind over food and power but he probably has too little faith in Ukrainians as if this shit is insurmountable

Ukraines infrastructure is being decimated. It has a huge impact. How big? Hard to say but getting worse.

However, read German news sites. One of the goals is to force millions more refugees and prevent the 10 million refugees from returning. This is creation dissension in Germany. Putin knows that German opinion is mixed and adding another 5 million refugees to the current one million in Germany is a nightmare scenario.

If countries like the USA and Canada stepped up and each offered to take a million refugees it would likely soften the feeling in Germany that they are carrying the weight while we in North America have no impact on our daily lives.

Russia could withdraw a long time ago. Russia could just not invade the sovereign country to colonize it in the first place. So many useless deaths.

And targeting the civilian infrastructure is a war crime. And considered genocide.

And I could be the queen of England, but how is that relevant? You asked if they believe it will help, and the answer is yes and it does help them.

You said it was very stupid for russians to wait so long before committing war crimes that are considered genocide. It's very clinical and ignorant to say that. It's admitting that the war is going not against "the regime", but against the nation - that is never a good idea and never helped in the history of similar conflicts.

Just being pragmatic, that's how it's usually done, what russians are trying to pull is beyond me, but in the end it's worse.

If ppl live without electricity for months in winter, they will try to force surrender play

No. The most active part of society is young men and women. And they're much more likely to join the Armed Forces than surrender (and later be raped, tortured, and killed by russian terrorists).

That is the intention of Russian to force Ukrain back on table. Russian lost transitional military encounter, and they cannot see themselves will win this war in future. This is war in another dimension unfortunately it is always the people that is suffering.

God bless Ukrainian.
