THE TIME HAS COME FOR DECISIVE ACTION AGAINST THE AGGRESSOR
** Joint statement of the Free Russia Forum and the civil campaign “European Belarus” **
Putin’s war against Ukraine has entered a new phase. Unable to defeat the Ukrainians on the battlefield, Putin has decided to starve Ukraine out by launching massive strikes against its civilian infrastructure. His goal is obvious—to leave Ukrainians without light and heat in anticipation of the onset of the winter cold, to demoralize them, to sow despondency and fear. He will not achieve his goal; he will not be able to break the people who have been resisting armed aggression for several months now, fighting for their freedom. However, this very tactic of destroying civilian infrastructure poses a threat to the life and health of millions of people, including women, children, and the elderly, who may be left without heat and light for the entire winter. In light of this danger, we can say that Putin’s strikes amount to acts of genocide against the Ukrainian people, aimed at inflicting maximum damage on the civilian population of Ukraine.
Given these conditions, it is necessary to stop diplomatic maneuvers aimed at preventing a possible escalation of the conflict. Escalation is already occurring constantly, both in the degree of confrontation and as new participants get involved in the conflict. From conventional combat, Putin moved on to threats to use nuclear weapons or to detonate a “dirty bomb.” From military actions on the front line he moved on to the bombing of civilian infrastructure. From strikes on the territory of Ukraine he moved on to strikes on the territory of NATO (if we admit the fact that the missile that hit the territory of Poland was Russian). If Putin is not stopped now, sooner or later this war will lead to a direct clash between Putin’s Russian Federation and NATO. Then it will be too late to talk about escalation.
It is necessary now to stop Putin in his cause of destroying the civilian infrastructure of Ukraine. And there is only one way to do this—the military one. Ukraine should receive the weapons that will allow it to effectively respond to rocket attacks on its territory, by hitting those military bases from which rocket attacks on Ukraine are conducted, wherever these bases are located.
The aggressor will not rest until he meets a force equal to or greater than his own. The perpetrator will not leave his victim alone until he receives a forceful rebuff. The time for talking and appeasing dictators is over. The time has come for decisive action against the aggressor. Ukraine should urgently get the help it needs to stop the genocide of its people.
Comment from Renan Oklang: “The war in Ukraine is starting to look like a chess game. The US & NATO are reluctant to provide Ukraine with long-range rockets & cruise missiles for fear that they might be used for strikes inside Russia & perhaps on Moscow itself. It’s just not fair & sporting at all that Russia can do so from well inside Russian territory & Belarus with impunity. The scenario is like a bishop pair (Russia) against a knight pair (Ukraine). The former can harass the enemy king from the opposite side of the board until checkmated. In contrast, a knight pair can’t deliver checkmate even if the pair gets up close & personal to the enemy king. Stalemate is the best scenario that the two knights can accomplish, which is how the war in Ukraine probably will end.”
Andreas Comresse: “Gary for President !”
Alex Stepanyk : “I was watching the video of the alleged “war crime” committed by the Ukrainians who shot a bunch of Russian troops faking a surrender. Did any of the Russian trolls and the Western Useful Idiots who are howling about this EVEN NOTICE WHERE THIS HAPPENED? It was in the courtyard of A PRIVATE HOME where a Ukrainian family once lived; there’s a toy car and a child’s swing set visible in the video. THE HOUSE OF COURSE IS COMPLETELY BLOWN UP and nobody knows what happened to the family and the kids who lived there. Like the rest of Ukraine, the Russians just shelled the hell out of a CIVILIAN HOME and possibly killed the people who lived there. You want to talk about a WAR CRIME? Russia’s entire unprovoked attack on UKRAINE is a WAR CRIME, targeting civilians and killing children, raping women. Remember the Ukrainian POWs in the Russian concentration camp at Olenivka? The 50 plus POWs who were murdered by the Russians who then tried to blame their cowardly act on HIMARS rockets fired by Ukraine? Of course not; nobody cares about dead Ukrainians, they take it for granted that the Russians wage war barbarically. But the New York Times and the other Russian loving Western media are quick to point the finger at Ukrainian “war crimes”. Give me a break.”
Artjom Ivan Roman Jensen: “The winters in Ukraine are harsh due to the continental climate. A lot of innocent people are at risk of dying from a lack of water, food, medicine and heat during this winter. The situation is really really terrible. We need to stop those missiles hitting infrastructure.”
Dzintra Simpson: “If Putin is not stopped now, sooner or later this war will lead to a direct clash between Putin’s Russian Federation and NATO. Then it will be too late to talk about escalation.” !!!
