On the morning of October 10, Russia launched a massive missile attack on a number of cities in Ukraine, including Kyiv. The missiles hit a number of civilian objects, including a children’s playground in the heart of Ukraine’s capital. Casualties have been reported. Russia no longer hides its terrorist nature, therefore it must be recognized as a terrorist state at the official level.
As a result of the missile attack on Dnipro and Zaporizhia, multiple casualties have been confirmed. The city of Kremenchuh is in blackout. Putin is no longer able to succeed on the battlefield, confronted with the Armed Forces of Ukraine as the Russian army has completely degraded seven months into the full-scale invasion. And now the Kremlin dictator has set a course for the destruction of Ukrainians on a national basis. The October 10 missile attack is an example of military terrorism of an unprecedented scale so the civilized world must respond to this with more than just “concern.” Concrete action is needed: Ukraine must be provided with all necessary weaponry, including air defense systems.
Russia has long been plotting the strike on Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure. In the future, such incidents will repeat more and more often, and with the onset of cold weather, they will yield a particularly devastating effect. The Russian military industry is now working 24/7 to produce the required number of missiles for attacks on Ukrainian cities. Putin seeks to deprive Ukrainians of everything: heat, electricity, and water supply. He is making the life of Ukrainians unbearable while the whole world stands aside. Partners must help Ukraine with long-range air defense systems so that Russian missile attacks can be thwarted.
Putin has already lost on the battlefield, so all he can do is launch missiles on civilian targets in an attempt to intimidate and bargain for negotiations on his own terms. He is trying to bring the entire civilized world to its knees through terror. Attacks on critical infrastructure are outright terror, and Russia is already talking about it directly. The West must recognize Russia as a terrorist state. This is necessary in order for the Putin regime to be defeated.
Ukraine vitally needs Western weapons, including long-range air defense systems – this is a matter of survival for thousands of Ukrainians. Russia still has a substantial missile arsenal and will continue to employ it against civilians. Putin is shelling peaceful Ukrainian cities: Kyiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhia, Kremenchuh, Khmelnytskyi, and Lviv, just like Hitler ordered the bombing of London, Coventry, and Gdansk. Russia behaves exactly like Nazi Germany. Ruscism is the neo-Nazism of the 21st century, while Putin is the modern version of Hitler. Does the West really fail to see these obvious facts and do anything about Russia?
Putin will stop where he is stopped, where Russia’s military resource will be exhausted. Of course, it will not stop in Ukraine: Europe is now under an unprecedented threat for the first time since the end of the Second World War. Ukraine is an outpost for the defense of the civilized world and desperately needs military and political support. This is an investment of the civilized world in its continued existence.
