    All this is strange somehow. Now the main issue in the publications is Russia's inaction in relation to Western assistance for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. What do they care about their factories, if they receive a lot of equipment every day even without factories?
    We are talking about offensive weapons. And the fact that MO clearly bypasses the topic, fuels interest even more.
    Here, go and figure out what's in the heads of the bosses?

    - Again, being "spread fingers" continues - little by little and for many objects at once! - Already somewhere in specific directions they would break through "offensive corridors" - with colossal and crushing massive strikes! - Otherwise, all these attacks on a huge number of objects and on huge areas - can continue for an arbitrarily long time! - And there the Nazis quickly restore their positions, drag up equipment, strengthen it again - and everything starts all over again!
    - In general, it already seems that our Armed Forces of the Russian Federation simply support the sluggish VZO; but they do not pursue specific offensive goals!
