It is much more important for Putin to wage an imperial war than to cover his own territories, – military legal expert

The war is moving to the territory of the Russian Federation, and the development of the conflict is inevitable, and this is only the beginning of the process. If necessary, the Russians will burn and destroy their cities, because one cannot count on the humanism of the authorities. Оlexander Musiyenko, head of the Center for Military Legal Research, said this on the air of the FREEDOM TV channel.

“This is just the beginning of the processes. There are dissatisfied people who have been expected in Russia for a long time, they had no other way to declare their form of protest, except in this way by force. All this happens because in Russia it is simply impossible to protest and talk about something differently. All this happened because neither democracy nor any kind of dialogue and consensus within Russia was really guaranteed,” the expert said.

Musienko noted that it is much more important for Putin to wage an imperial war than to cover his own territories, and he needs Russians only as material.

“If necessary, they would destroy Belgorod, if necessary, they would burn Voronezh and blow it up. That is, their logic is such that Russia is big, there is where to retreat. There will be no sentimentality there, you should not count on some kind of humanism, you should not count on any rational things, ”the expert added.

Musienko drew attention to the fact that, according to official documents, the Russian Federation should have more than 20,000 troops covering the state border with Ukraine. However, in reality, these armed forces are waging war in the occupied territories of Ukraine.

“The priorities of the Russian leadership are obvious,” Musienko stressed. “Instead of ensuring the security and protection of their territories, it is more important for Putin and his entourage to wage an aggressive, imperial war. This is a fact that every citizen of Russia must realize – they are needed solely as a tool for realizing the geopolitical and imperial ambitions of the leadership.
