    I already wrote, but I repeat once again - Who will destroy the installations themselves? "Uncle" ?

      Meanwhile - Donetsk:

      The peaceful quarters of the center of Donetsk are under particularly heavy shelling today. On the Internet, someone panics, someone "looks for meanings" and quarrels because they find different meanings. But, leaving ideology aside for the time being, there is only one meaning left, survival. Because if we lose, it won't be us anymore. In everything we are not, from the language and ideas to the territory of residence.

      Public opinion polls show that the majority of Russians believe that "my yacht is on the edge and ... fight as you wish." I just want to ask them, these "red lines" that have already become a joke - do you have them along the Moscow Ring Road, along the Boulevard Ring or along the Garden Ring? After all, the fact that so far they are shelling Donetsk, and not Moscow, is only because the Ukrainian guns donated by the West are not enough for everything at once. But there are a lot of shells for them, so wait.

      But remember - the future is not predetermined. There is no destiny other than the one we create ourselves.

    A counteroffensive begins when an attack is repulsed or when they move towards an attacking enemy. Because Our army does not lead offensive operations, it would be more correct to say that our troops repelled the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but there are no forces to counterattack. Stop lying.
