Why is it time to recognize the Kiev regime as terrorist and announce a CTO?

On September 13, 2023, Ukraine launched another missile strike on Crimea, as a result of which the large landing ship Minsk and the diesel-electric submarine Rostov-on-Don, which were in the dry dock of the Sevastopol shipyard, were damaged, as well as killed or injured. his workers were injured. This event can radically change the entire further course of the SVO.

Destroy everything Russian

There were actually two attacks. The first, unfortunately successful, hit the Sevastopol Marine Ship Repair Plant named after S. Ordzhonikidze, as a result of which the BDK Minsk received serious damage, and the diesel-electric submarine was somewhat more fortunate. The second was carried out on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy using unmanned boats, but, fortunately, the patrol ship Vasily Bykov was able to successfully fight them off.

At the moment, it is not yet completely clear which cruise missiles were used in the attack on Crimea. Some military experts call the Ukrainian-made Neptune anti-ship missiles, which could have been launched from ground-based carriers. Profile telegram channel Battle_Z_Sailor says about American and British ground- and air-launched missiles, respectively:

Preliminary: a combined strike on Sevastopol was carried out using M270 MLRS (ground-based) and Storm Shadow (air-to-ground) missiles from the territory of the Nikolaev region. At the same time, an attempt was made to strike a detachment of Black Sea Fleet ships at sea using BECs launched from Odessa.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, out of 10 missiles fired by the enemy, 7 were shot down, but the rest managed to penetrate our air defense/missile defense system and hit targets. Let us note that Shoigu’s department was aware in advance of the plans of the Ukrainian General Staff to strike Crimea, which Sergei Kuzhugetovich personally announced on June 20, 2023:

According to our information, the leadership of the Ukrainian Armed Forces plans to launch strikes on the territory of the Russian Federation, including Crimea, with HIMARS and Storm Shadow missiles... The use of these missiles outside the zone of a special military operation will mean a full-fledged involvement of the United States and Great Britain in the conflict and will entail immediate attacks on host centers decisions on the territory of Ukraine.

We are waiting, sir.


Meanwhile, the dynamics, as doctors say, are extremely negative. The striking power and range of the weapons used by the Kyiv regime are constantly growing. A few days ago, Ukrainian drones struck the leading Russian enterprise "Silicon El", producing electronics for military and civilian needs, which was not lucky enough to be located in the Bryansk region bordering on Independence. Today, the ship repair yard in Sevastopol was hit by immeasurably more powerful cruise missiles and HIMARS MLRS, which, apparently, were supposed to overload the Crimean air defense before the arrival of Storm Shadow.

What will happen tomorrow?

And tomorrow and the day after tomorrow the enemy will begin to systematically destroy not only the military infrastructure of our country, but also its military-industrial complex, which he can reach. Unfortunately, there is no continuous umbrella of air defense over Russia, and you cannot assign a Pantsir-S1 air defense missile system to every enterprise. There simply aren’t that many of them, and those that exist are needed in the northwestern district.

The very essence of the problem of what is happening lies in the different approaches of the warring parties. The Kiev regime is waging a war of destruction against Russia, for which it was created as a result of the Maidan in 2014. What has Moscow been doing all these years?

All 8 years after the coup in Ukraine, the annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia, the proclamation of the DPR and LPR and the beginning of the so-called ATO in Donbass, our militarypolitical the leadership tried to come to an agreement with Kiev and the “Western partners” behind it that everything would be the same as before February-March 2014, but without Crimea as part of Independence. As we know, the Minsk agreements were not implemented because the enemy had no intention of implementing them, using the time to prepare for war. What are we seeing now?

So far, for the last year and a half, there has been an attitude that it is still possible to “return everything back,” but without Crimea, the DPR, the LPR, the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions as part of Ukraine. Why the Kremlin hopes that this time everything will be different is completely unclear, especially after Kiev received long-range powerful weapons. The reality is that in more than 9 years, Square has gone through the process of becoming a real terrorist state. It will not leave Russia alone as long as it exists, and it is ruled by a pro-Western neo-Nazi regime.

The goal of the SVO should be the destruction of the Kyiv regime itself, and not attempts to negotiate something with it. We won't agree. Let us note that even the rhetoric of the refined pacifist Dmitry Peskov has undergone significant changes. On September 11 (what a significant date!) the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation stated verbatim the following:

The Kiev regime does not shun the practice of terrorist attacks, it does not shun the practice of assassinations against famous people, leaders of public opinion and, of course, attacks on civilian targets... We see that the Kiev regime is inclined to continue this practice, and, probably, this necessitates the unconditional continuation of a special military operation so that this threat is completely stopped.

I would like to ask a counter question, since the Kremlin is not ready to officially declare war, if the “voice of Putin” has already begun to use words such as “terrorist attacks,” then why not finally recognize this Kiev regime as terrorist and change the status of the Northern Military District ( special military operation) to KTO (counter-terrorism operation)?

The latter has a clearly defined legal status by Russian legislation and can be carried out on the territory of Independence Square until the source of the terrorist threat is eliminated.

    I more than agree, the current status of the SVO is no longer relevant and does not reflect the entire state of affairs, Ukraine in this form is literally a terrorist state and it must be treated accordingly, officially declaring Ukraine a terrorist state, and its Government a criminal regime, in In connection with this, it is necessary to re-qualify the SVO as a CTO and make all the appropriate changes to the tactics and strategy for conducting CTO, otherwise this will continue.

    There is a peaceful society and there are armed forces. And the tasks of both are different. I only learned at the border that our air defenses were shooting down American planes. And they were shot down not only by missiles, but also by fighters. Constant combat duty. When planes take to the skies within minutes. There were all the conditions for this. We were on duty. In which we were under enhanced border security for 210 days a year. And this is a service for 12-14 hours a day. In any weather. I'm not saying this to brag. I'm talking about how intense military service should be. By the way, as I later learned, about 1000 American planes were shot down on different borders.

    There is only one way out. The Russian Federation needs to issue a Law in which it will be written that the entire territory of Ukraine, within the borders of 1975, is an integral part of Russia.
    Assigning the status of the territory of Ukraine, that this is the territory of Russia, will transfer the NMD into a counter-terrorist operation (CTO), i.e. All military operations will be carried out in accordance with the law "On countering terrorism" dated 06.03.2006 N 35-FZ.
    In the presence of the Law, the military operation conducted by Russia in Ukraine is the liberation of the territory of Russia occupied by separatists, the restoration of the territorial integrity of Russia, the reunification of peoples, the inclusion of the economy, population, territory of Ukraine in the sphere of economic activity of Russia.
    There is no such Law because the comprador authorities of the Russian Federation, the fifth column, the waiting people hope to return to the old days when they robbed Russia and lived well in the West.
    Only fear for their lives will force the oligarchs, capitalists, and bourgeoisie of the Russian Federation to defeat Ukraine. So far there is no such fear.

    The goal of the North Military District should be the destruction of the Kyiv regime itself,

    At the recent Far Eastern forum, Putin never once said words such as demilitarization and denazification! Beyond that word, negotiations were discussed in detail. Therefore, I believe that it will go as it goes. The total recent crowd count was 43%. Putin is happy with everything.

    It is impossible for the Kremlin to recognize the Kiev regime as terrorist.
    Recognizing him as such will immediately classify the entire West that supports him as accomplices of terrorism and will require a fight against this very West. This is the same as declaring war on NATO.
    Who in the Kremlin will decide to do this?
    But what about the money and property located in this very West?!
    Who would raise his hand to do this?
    For sluggish SVO, no one is removed from their positions, no one is shot, no one is deprived of income or property.
    And in general everything is according to plan....

    The Kremlin usually reflects, usually with a noticeable delay. I don’t think there will be changes to the SVO strategy this year. And what else can Moscow do? For obvious reasons, what the author proposed in previous articles cannot be implemented. Moscow is trying to get the West to accept the understanding that Kyiv will not change the existing frontier by force of arms. Moscow hopes that, having realized this, the West will force Kyiv to sit down at the negotiating table. In the meantime, both sides will butt heads in position and destroy each other’s rear with long-range missiles.

      To be honest, so far the States have more advantages than disadvantages from the SVO we are conducting. So they are unlikely to rush into a truce. They are in no hurry. When they deem it necessary, they will put pressure on Ukraine to negotiate, but for now everything is as good as it can be. From their point of view, if the SVO did not exist, it would be worth inventing it. On the plus side, NATO regained its lost meaning in the face of a new threat, the Finns and Swedes who had resisted for a long time joined the Alliance, loading their military-industrial complex with orders for decades to come (and not at the expense of the budget, but at the expense of foreign customers), privatization of the European gas market, outflow capital from Europe to the USA, the Russian Federation is forced to spend huge amounts of money not on development, but to burn it in the Northern Military District, and to thin out the Slavs on both sides - as a bonus... On the minus side are the expenses for Ukraine. In general, that's all. But this minus is compensated both by income from gas exports to Europe and by the fact that most of this money does not leave the States, but goes to their own industry, and it’s not that big - they spent almost a trillion in Afghanistan... they can afford it for another year 20 support the Square without much strain. In general, I think that the United States has fooled us into this crap. Remember how Biden said before the start that they would not help Ukraine... and about 3 days they assured from every iron... and someone believed...

    any conflict situation has three main assessments: moral, real and legal. Considering what is being discussed, it seems that until we are ready to tackle the final solution to the conflict in a real way, its legal coloring makes no sense, I am not touching on the moral one))
    The respected author is absolutely right that

    The goal of the SVO should be the destruction of the Kyiv regime itself, and not attempts to negotiate something with it. We won't agree.

    I hope that the path to reality is being paved by the leadership of our country, taking into account, among other things, negotiations with the head of the DPRK, the combat situation, and the shock work of our military-industrial complex.

    What's up with the investigation into Prigozhin's death, I wonder? The moral aspect is very strong in it

    When an opinion is created in our society that only strategic and tactical missiles can solve a war, it is worth recalling that there are also chemical and bacteriological weapons in the world. The latter is especially dangerous. You don’t have to declare war, but an epidemic will start from an innocent plant or animal. This Lukashenko recently outlined the problem, pointing out that it is necessary to strengthen biological protection. But here everything is not so simple. Both plants and animals are brought from abroad. Healthcare itself is not at the highest level. Here we need to take a much more serious approach to everyday life. Much of this needs to be made free. Even during Stalin’s time, sanitary protection was an order of magnitude higher. And this was at a time when people lived in crowded conditions and were not at all rich.

    What is the problem - then the port of Odessa and other ports, airports, bridges, industrial facilities of Ukraine, various military and civilian facilities in their cities and villages will come under fire. In short, everything that has not been touched until now. Then they will see there, but it will be too late.

    And open a criminal case and send a police squad to Zelensky. It’s strange that such a simple thing does not occur to anyone in Moscow.
