Russia has shifted its rhetoric on missile strike campaigns – ISW
Russia has shifted its rhetoric regarding missile strike campaigns, which has to do with the anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive, the RFE/RL project "Krym.Realii" reports, citing the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).
The Russian MoD has recently shifted its rhetoric and is actively describing strike campaigns, likely in an effort to portray a proactive approach to growing concerns in the Russian information space regarding a Ukrainian counteroffensive. Russian milbloggers claimed that the missiles struck Ukrainian air defense systems and a transportation hub in Pavlohrad," the ISW report says.
As IMI reported, the campaign of “Russification” that the Kremlin is carrying out in the occupied parts of Ukraine is burning back into Russia itself as it continues to empower and amplify overtly nationalist ideologies and xenophobia against domestic minorities within Russia itself. Russian officials have continuously targeted migrant and ethnic minority communities in ongoing force generation efforts, which largely "places the military burden of the 'Russification' project in Ukraine on communities and individuals that are its targets domestically."
