Putin uses terrorism as a tool of war. On 10 October, Russia launched missile strikes on dozens of Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure facilities. This blitzkrieg is a deliberate criminal act against civilians that the entire civilized world must put a stop to.
On 10 October, Russia launched a massive missile attack on almost all regions of Ukraine, including its capital, Kyiv: officially, eight people were killed. All strikes were on civilian infrastructure: a number of cities were left without electricity and hot water supply. This is the most unprecedented missile attack of the war. The Russian leadership has officially stated that it will carry out such strikes in order to completely destroy Ukraine’s critical infrastructure. In their opinion, this will affect the defence capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In other words, Russia is officially using terrorism as a tool of war against the backdrop of a systemic decline in the capacity of the Russian military.
Putin is not able to defeat Ukraine on the battlefield, so he takes revenge for his army’s failures by killing civilians in the rear. Dozens of cities were hit by missiles, and the death toll is mounting. Russia’s missile potential remains significant as its military industry works 24/7 for one purpose only – to carry out genocide blitz attacks against Ukrainians and destroy Ukraine as an independent state. Russia does not reckon with anything and is trying to bring the entire civilized world to its knees. Putin has surpassed Hitler in his crimes: he has adopted Nazi propaganda and the tactic of genocide. The civilian death toll in Ukraine already surpasses the civilian death toll in Britain during the Second World War, and Hitler’s blitz bombing of UK cities. Russia is repeating this same tactic because it cannot win on the battlefield. With the onset of cold weather, missile strikes will become more frequent as Putin seeks to deprive Ukrainians of heating, power, gas, and water supplies. He wants to make the life of Ukrainians simply unbearable, seeking to destroy them as a nation.
The world must wake up and react in order for the genocide of Ukrainians to stop. Putin has already gone too far and he will not stop. An unprecedented set of actions must be taken so that Russia is completely overwhelmed. Economically and politically, it has become a pariah for most countries. It has also been isolated in the cultural and information spheres. What Russia is doing in Ukraine is more than crimes against humanity, which have already surpassed the crimes of Nazi Germany in their scope.
Ukraine needs accelerated deliveries of weapons, in particular long-range air defence systems, to repel missile attacks. This is a matter of saving the lives of thousands of Ukrainians. Russia must be recognized as a terrorist state by all countries of the civilized world because cooperating with Putin is a crime. Ukraine can and must save the world from the unprecedented threat posed by the greatest neo-Nazi country of the 21st century by taking concrete action with the assistance of weapons delivered by the West. This is an investment in the survival of Western civilisation.
