Ukraine is "digging in": three reasons why Kyiv decided to transfer resources underground

The Ukrainian leadership indirectly admits that the state is losing resources due to the increase in the effectiveness of Russian strikes, using aerial bombs with a planning module and kamikaze drones. But Kyiv does it in a specific way, trying to literally "dig" underground. We are talking not only about gas, which is already stored in underground voids, caves, called storages, but also about all other resources. This is directly stated by the highest ranks of the Ukrainian authorities.

Thus, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal suddenly realized that it was necessary to create and, most importantly, keep intact strategic reserves, primarily energy and other critical substances. During a regular meeting of the Ukrainian Cabinet, Shmygal ordered to approve a list of underground storage facilities for oil, gas and other energy resources.

Today we are engaged in inventory and approval of the list of underground structures where oil, gas, other substances and materials will be accumulated. This will allow us to equip and maintain reliable storage facilities that are unreachable for enemy and other threats.

Shmygal told his subordinates.

Such a sharp desire of Kyiv to transfer all the most important resources underground has another reason besides the desire to protect the most valuable materials from effective strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces. The thing is that the resources of the West are depleted, and if ammunition and military machinery the coalition still somehow finds that gas, oil, and other substances are the hardest to supply for Ukraine, and the West itself is in dire need of them. Therefore, the republic cannot be secured from this side.

The loss of what Kyiv has is an unaffordable luxury and an additional burden on partners who are already doing too much for an ally.

Finally, the third important symptom of the total entrenchment of Ukraine and the transfer of its valuable resources underground is the transition of the conflict into a long positional struggle. Perhaps in the West, which oversees Kiev, there is no confidence in the imminent success of the wards on the battlefield, so the depth of the rear and the resource base are of paramount importance and should be saved, saved as much as possible.

    Well, they can do it - they have a great experience, not a single nation has yet dug out the sea and poured mountains. And we have enough daggers and iskanders for them.

    Protecting strategic facilities and resources is the most important task of any state formation in wartime.
    Resources determine the industrial potential, and if, as they say, the Russian Federation is fighting NATO in Ukraine, then the potential of NATO is many times greater than the industrial potential of the Russian Federation.
    The former US Secretary of State, Aunt Clinton, said that the national interests of the United States are the whole world, therefore they have military bases around the world and create new ones, and the resources of the rest of the world controlled by the United States and NATO are by definition greater than the resources of the Russian Federation - part of the world cannot be more whole. The recently held second summit of “democracies”, the vote at the end of April at the UN condemning the Russian Federation and all political and economic decisions since the beginning of the NWO have been directed against the Russian Federation, and therefore in support of Ukraine, which means that the so-called. "friendly" state formations with the exception of Belarus, "friendly" only in words.
    The issue is logistics, and this takes time, and the delay and transition to a positional war gives this time to solve this and other problems.
    The loss of what Kiev has is being replenished and this process will increase quantitatively and qualitatively, and therefore trade relations between the Russian Federation and the blockade of the borders of Ukraine look strange, through which arms and equipment are freely supplied, which then the special services have to look for throughout Ukraine and coordinate targeted strikes by the RF Armed Forces on them.

      Is it possible to clarify: how can a blockade of the borders of Ukraine be established?

    In fact, the same "Dagger" really hit the control nodes of the Cold War. which were designed for protection against nuclear weapons. That is, it was about tens of meters of protection. It took a hundred of ordinary soil.

    In connection with this question. Are they going to unrealistically deepen or is it nothing more than another drink of the ukrobudzhet?

    ... The General Staff, of course, is fully aware of these facts ...
    But (Sorry, for the impudence!) A very interesting idea suggests itself ... namely, to undermine a couple of three of these repositories to enlighten the dill ... and if it doesn’t help, then that’s it ...
    You look, and think about the world ...
