Why Putin fired at Ukraine today: the Ministry of Internal Affairs named the reasons

It is noted that today is the last day of payment of 100 million dollars on the external debt of the Russian Federation.

Adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Viktor Andrusiv, named three reasons “why Putin fired at Ukraine today.”

“The USA, Canada, Great Britain and Japan have banned the import of Russian gold – this is minus $15 billion a year from the budget,” Andrusiv wrote on Facebook.play video

The second reason, in his opinion, is the fact that Boris Johnson promised today to put pressure on Macron and Scholz to dissuade them from imposing a “bad peace” on Ukraine, and after the morning shelling, Macron and Scholz had fewer arguments for their position.

“Today is the last day of payment of $100 million on Russia’s external debt,” Andrusiv added.

Recall that the attack on Kiev was carried out by Russia with high-precision missiles from the Caspian Sea region. For today’s attack on the Kiev region, the enemy used strategic aviation. The X-101 missile is the most high-precision and most expensive missile in service with the Russian Federation.

  1. “The X-101 missile is the most high-precision and most expensive missile in service with the Russian Federation.”

    Will they be that great when they’re equipped with washing machine chips?

    At any rate,

    “The Russian Air Force’s long-range air-launched cruise missiles are proving to be highly unreliable, coming up short in President Vladimir Putin’s campaign against Ukraine, according to a military expert.

    “The weapons, believed to be the Raduga Kh-101 (RS-AS-23A Kodiak), are failing at an exorbitant rate when it comes to hitting enemy targets in Ukraine, said Douglas Barrie, a senior fellow for military aerospace at the International Institute for Strategic Studies think tank in London.

    “Such a high failure rate could be down to multiple factors, including issues with launching capabilities or the weapons failing to explode after hitting targets, he said.”

    “Experts had believed its accuracy to be quite high due to the electronic Glonass satellite navigation ― the Russian equivalent to GPS ― and TV terminal guidance used in deploying it.”

    This navigation system is the same one that makes mafia pilots tape Garmin GPS gadgets into their cockpits. Do they tape Garmins into the missiles too? LOL!

  2. Payment in Rubles was not acceptable and Putin was told this. If he made his “last payment” with Rubles, then Russia is in default.

What is your opinion?
