The Economist: Russian troops twice fired missiles at the GUR building in Kyiv

The Economist magazine found that Russian troops twice launched rocket attacks on the building of the Main Intelligence Directorate in Kyiv. The first time it was in March last year, the second - at the end of May 2023.

According to the publication, despite this, with the head of the GUR, Kirill Budanov, "everything is fine." In total, he survived at least 10 assassination attempts, according to the publication.

On May 29, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on a massive missile attack on Ukrainian airfields. As a result, according to the department, command posts, radar posts and aircraft were hit.

The Ukrainian media on the same day announced that the Russian Armed Forces had hit Rybalsky Island in Kyiv, where the GUR building is located. The area was blocked from traffic.

After the Russian press reported Budanov's hospitalization as a result of his injury. He was placed in a Berlin hospital.

Formerly British newspaper Daily Telegraph doubtedthat the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, is alive and well. The journalists tried to get a comment from his assistants, but they denied the reports of the Russian media about the severe wounding of the chief of Ukrainian military intelligence.

    The absence of missiles with a warhead of 5-10 tons of TNT is an obvious and obvious omission.
    So many targets "request" just such a charge.

      It is clear that medium-range missiles under the treaty were destroyed several decades ago. Interestingly, is it too difficult to attach a conventional warhead with a guidance system to a long-range missile and shoot from somewhere in the east (the region of the same Kura) in Ukraine? Through a tunnel, for example, in the Carpathians?

    And his health is not very good - it hurts his paws, then his tail falls off. Shedding began the other day... The patient is rather dead than alive. Rumors of his injury give the Nazis hope for his return to duty.

    On the role of personality in history. Imagine that Budanov was killed. Ended tomorrow the resistance of Ukraine? No. Then on what occasion is the national rejoicing? For one shelling of Kyiv, a new school in some region or a hospital flew out into the chimney. And the result is zero. And the target was not killed, and thousands of Russians were left without knowledge and treatment.

      By your logic, the United States is wasting millions of dollars by killing the leaders of all possible organizations around the world. And Israel too.
      It is necessary to eliminate the odious leaders of the enemies, so that others would not be accustomed. It is necessary to destroy the infrastructure of the enemy to make it harder for him. Thank God, schools are being built and hospitals too. There are problems, but where, as they say, they are not? Who doesn't have them? Allocation of money for this or that is always a compromise of interests and priorities.
