AKJJSIM commented at the time :
“I was required to read a lot of Russian cold war era doctrine, printed by the US for US military leadership training. This doctrine is based on the lessons Soviet Russia learned in the war against Germany. I can tell you that what the RU military did in Chechnya, Syria and Ukraine, is directly out of the USSR playbook. Large caliber mobile artillery that is specifically designed for leveling cities. The idea is to root out the civilian populations through terror and destruction, rather than committing large numbers of foot soldiers to fight street to street. They will destroy whatever it takes to capture real estate.”
