Russian missiles falling on NATO territory
But not from Russia it seems.
Quote from BBC News Live (12:25):
The Polish president has said there is no sign that the missile that hit Polish territory late on Tuesday was part of an intentional attack
President Duda says it's "very likely" that a missile explosion was caused by Ukrainian air defences
The Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg, who is holding a press conference, also says the incident in Poland was "likely" caused by the activity of Ukraine's air defence systems
I had it down as a sign of poor quality troops with old unmaintained kit rather than a deliberate action.
Ukraine knocking missiles off course is an unfortunate accident, unfortunately it also give Russia a new tactic.
Germany has FINALLY agreed to send armour to Ukraine.
Looks like Putin may be setting up the Wagner private army to be the scapegoat, when/if Russia is defeated in Ukraine: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-64859780
It’s probably the only ‘off-ramp’ Putin has left. He (thinks) he gets to save face by apportioning blame on mercs.
Mercs who effectively function as a special forces arm of the Russian military.
Remove “effectively” and you’re wholly correct.
Edit: nvm I had another article open and thought it was the URL linked above.
Are you suggesting a leopard tank looks like Bozo?
Oops, fixed it, no way Bozo would never be that beautiful.
There is an assumption that failure to supply is a deliberate action and not that Russia simply doesn't have sufficient ammunition stocks.
