There was no **** up in Kharkov mac
I don't know what Russia is up to, but clearly its actions are planned and intentional
I have made an observation, feel free to correct me as possible I was not focused enough to follow that.
As there are tons of infrastructural&social projects going on in the south, ie. Cherson, Mariopol, Melitopol etc - there was nothing like that in the north, that is Charkov, Izum etc.
When the road signs are replaced with the Russian ones in Chersonskaya oblast, nothing like that happened in the Izum.
When the city limits sculptures were painted tricolor all the south, the same in Izum, Kupyansk etc are just as they were.
When there are big billboards about "we are one nation" all over the south - nothing like that in the north.
Giant infrastructural projects are running in the whole southern regions, new hospitals, and whole city quarters are being built brand new - nothing like that in the north.
So I draw a conclusion, that possible those areas was not going to be incorporated into Russia anyway.
A difference in approach is obvious.
Why, if not different faith of the territories?

Apti Alaudinov two days ago stated:
What is happening today was planned. This is a tactical ploy that helped us to pull all their forces and means to the territory where it is convenient for us to fight with them.
But, but... how could this be, when Russian General Staff didn't call Yuri Podolyaka or Rybar, or Readovka, or South Front and didn't ask for their "expert" opinion? Because as we know, the real war is fought in media sphere and people who wouldn't be able to distinguish shit from shinola operationally rely on their own and IPSO echo-chamber.
Here is one such demonstration--operational maps. I did a review of this issue a few days and touched upon this seemingly simple thing: that you cannot trust maps by all kinds of fanboys, like Rybar. ALL of it, without exception, including REAL positions of Russian units and formations is highly classified and is not known to ALL "experts", me included, who pretend that they know. They don't. Same as they don't know real operational plans, they do not know the real troops movements and all poor and overwhelmed consumers of such "expertise" get is a feculant stream of "interpretations" of media information by amateurs who present their operational "skills" (99% of them have no idea what operational planning is) by producing the SO CALLED "operational maps" which are nothing more than a complete and misleading BS concocted based on the media "reports" most of which are nothing more than crude propaganda and PR.
And let's keep in mind, that even people who pretend to have some accurate reports from the civilian population living there, can't really check those data.
They can be easily fooled by the targeted disinformation campaign.
This is why I take people like Podolyaka with a huge grain of salt. He is not a military man, he is not political ... what he is, is some jobless blogger living on the donations of his patronite-like sponsor team, and he must feed them with constant content flow. Most of the TG or Twiter accounts are acting like a bullshit cannons, they share the very same content. If one subscribes to several sources, it takes a moment to realize that the content is just the same, everywhere.
It was Sharyi who compromised himself in full last week, making himself an absolute fool in front of his audience. But people won't remember that in a week, as most of the population has the ability to focus smaller than a golden fish.
