Doctrine of Terror under General Surovkin
Ukraine’s Defense Minister has accused the new commander of Russia’s invasion forces of practicing a “terrorist doctrine” by bombing civilians and vital infrastructure.
Asked whether Moscow’s strategy has changed since the appointment of General Sergei Sorovikin as commander of Russian forces in Ukraine, Reznikov said emphatically: “Yes, it has changed. It resorts to terrorist tactics against civilians and infrastructure.”
“They don’t fire one or two missiles at Ukraine like they used to. They fired 40 in one day, took a short break and continued… over and over again…”, he explained.
Russian nuclear threat
Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov downplayed Russia’s threat to use nuclear weapons, claiming that even the Kremlin does not know the current status of its nuclear arsenal.
What is the technical assessment of their nuclear weapons? Do you know? number. me too. They don’t know either. Because the last test they did was in the 1990s in Kazakhstan, more than 30 years ago,” Reznikov said.
He noted that he hoped that India and China – which cooperate with Russia in various fields – had already warned Putin that the use of nuclear weapons was a “red line”.
“I don’t think (the Russians) will use it. However, when you have a neighbor monkey who has a grenade, you have to take into account all the risks,” added the Ukrainian minister.
