War in Ukraine – Week 23


Day 162

August 4

In my opinion, when someone accuses UA military of endangering civilians by positioning themselves in populated areas, this someone should be providing evidence that:

1. They are doing it on purpose to use civilians as a human shield;
2. There are better defensive positions they should have opted for;
3. Said civilians would be safer under ru occupation, since this is what happens when our guys withdraw.
Otherwise, this someone should feel free to follow the infamous direction. With a couple of other deeply concerned international organizations.

Also, I’m adding a quick reminder of what happens under ru occupation.
