It would be very helpful if Russia develops an alternative explosive device that has comparable blast radius to a nuclear bomb but without the radiation and non nuclear in nature to circumvent current international treaties. I think the closest one at the moment would be thermobaric weapons like the FOAB but it seems there is unwillingness to use this because of the vulnerabilities of its delivery platform, which kinda defeat the purpose of these weapons in the first place
The forces fighting there are Wagner and LDNR armies. Russia does not want to trash the whole region to uproot some Banderite worms.
So this is drawn out in order to deplete these vermin. This includes the recent attack on the power grid which is disrupting the logistics
chains for the Ukrs.
I thought a few months ago that the attack on the fortified districts would be more intense. But Russian and LDNR leaders have chosen
a slower approach. This makes sense to minimize losses. Time is running against the Kiev regime and its forces.
