Russia is not a serious country. If Russia was a serious country this assassination would have never happened. They (Ukraine and the NATO) would not have dared to even try it.
Over the years Russia has shown that it never retaliates when attacked. The Ukraine/West knows that it can target Russians inside Russia (even in Moscow) with absolutely no fear of themselves being attacked.
I'm not asking Russia to be the aggressor, but it should retaliate when attacked. Lack of retaliation only invites more aggression.
Did I say Russia is not a serious country? Well, I'll say it again. According to this Russian citizens who get caught in Russia for sending money to Ukrainian military only get a warning: https://twitter.com/loursparle/status/1560578253659709442
If Russia was a serious country it would punish its citizens for helping the enemy during wartime. Eastern European countries imprisons their citizens who show public support for Russia.
But, this is not a war for the Kremlin but a "special military operation". How is that going? Isn't Ukraine still shelling downtown Donetsk after six months of war?
If Russia was a serious country it would have started the war with a massive bombing campaign of Kiev where all the important decision making centers would have been taken out in the first few hours. But instead we got this idiotic "polite war" where Russia sent it troops deep into enemy territory without air support to get slaughtered. It is true that Russia has learned from this and is not doing that anymore, but the fact that Russia thought that it would not face resistance in Ukraine is a further proof of the total incompetence of the Kremlin.
Russia is just too weak and not organized both internally and externally.
Fully expect Dugina's murder to go unpunished.
I really don't get this logic.
How many terrorist attacks happened in France, Britain, Germany, the US that killed people?
And by some pathetic terrorist cells with far less resources at their disposal
Which leading figures were killed by the terrorist attacks? Has anyone had this level of planning?
This reminds me of the attacks by Pinochet's Chilean secret service (DINA). Once they blew up a political opponent's car in the middle of Washington. That's why it happened in 1970 and they never dared again. In addition, she was not related to the United States government but was a Chilean intern.
