The planning, targeting/guidance and weaponry are all from NATO.
The Ukrainians are only tools that NATO uses to launch the weapon inside operational range of Crimea.
This entire war is basically an NATO / Russia engagement in Ukraine.
NATO started this back in 2013/2014 with the thought they would force Russia out of the black sea and build NATO bases right on Ukraine/russia's border.
Instead, things have blown right up in NATO's face with their Nazi stooges in Kiev.
Still believing in their false superiority and worldview that is something straight out an alternative reality.
They choose to "support" Ukraine. Basically wage war against Russia with everything BUT your own physical troops.
And NATO is imploding by supporting Ukraine.
stockpiles are all depleted.
Factory's can not find the resources and personnel.
NATO "battle ready" units are stripped of gear/weapons to send to Ukraine.
Russia first blows up NATO Wunderwaffe for all to see and hauls the rest off to Patriot park like they are on Safari.
The EU economy is collapsing because of counter-sanctions and being globally pushed out of competitions.
Millitary vacancy's are notoriously high, and the millitary have never been so impopular to join.
NATO is trying to organize it's logistics in eastern europe. but runs into all kinds of problems.
The rail network in eastern europe can not support the required western trains.
NATO own road cargo units are near non-existent after decades of budget cuts.
NATO air transport is just as non-existent.
Civilian contractors, where NATO relies heavily on. works o.k in peacetime.
But not with the requirements that are put on them now.
Civilian contractors need to adhere civilian laws and regulations. And that means the driver's daily hours, ADR paperwork. permission from all states/provinces your millitary cargo passes trough.
these things take time to request and process. Not what you want in an millitary logistics chain.
Witch brings me back to these naval/cruise missile attacks on the Crimea.
It is of no strategic consequence. The real war is fought on land.
These are just desperate acts from NATO as they are already guaranteed an defeat in Ukraine.
They just do not want to wake up from the "Russia lost simulator" just yet.
Russia has been decimating the Ukrainian Gene-pool.
To the point now Kiev wants NATO states to deport male Ukrainians to Kiev.
Enlist women, and lower the conscription age to 16.
oh yeah, and now lure in high-school kids comparing the war to an videogame.
And handing out flyers to Ukrainian kids that say "we need soldiers, not students".
"Der untergang" anyone?.
Meanwhile, the Russian main forces in Ukraine are still held back behind defensive lines waiting for an order to advance.
Clearly waiting for an signal.
Every war eventually ends, and this one ends on Russia's Terms.
404 will cease to exist, Otherwise NATO will use it as a Nazi sock-puppet again somewhere in the future.
however you look at this conflict, everybody knows this is the only decision Russia can make.
