So.
Again.
Russians have spent a shitload of very expensive and disposable missiles (over 30 against Kyiv alone) to cut most of Ukraine off from electricity.
By the end of the day, power grid restored in most regions, again.
Any ideas what Russians are trying to achieve here?

they literally have no other ideas

Your grid isnt really back. Tiny amounts of electricity being backfed from the few working power plants and substations isnt 'restored'. You get enough electricity through to remind you of what you once had. Even that will soon dry up.
 
Leaving aside the Laws of War, there doesn't seem to be any coherent military aim for these Russian infrastructure attacks. They aren't using them to cover an advance. They aren't demoralising the population. Are they doing it for purely domestic political purposes?

They must think that the Ukrainian power grid is as decrepit as theirs.

The fact that they are failing in the field makes you wonder why they spend missile on civilian targets and not military ones. Reminiscent of Nazi germany still conducting terror bombing when the allies were pushing in from both sides
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
It gets restored, but not completely. And then they hit again. I don鈥檛 know how many more of those we can take before evacuations are needed. Bottom line is, unless we have 100% effective air defense, they will slowly wear down the power infrastructure

Like all terrorists, they have no real objectives except pure sadism & maximum trauma and death. That's it. That's terrorism 101.

1. they don't want to lose; 2. destruction 3. RU is evil & I don't know what the world is waiting for to cut them off from the internet, atm, flights, freedom. Cut them off already!
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
They are terrorists. They somehow believe that terrorizing civilians will help them achieve their goals. In reality, it has the opposite effect. It is crystal clear the the sane people of the world what russia is a terrorist, genocidal society and cannot be allowed to win.
 
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I love the ping pong here between "Russia ran out of missiles" & "Russia is wasting missiles". Like every few weeks ya'll suddenly go from certainty that Russia isnt launching missiles because they ran out to laughing about how Russia is "wasting" missiles.

They think the Ukrainians will kneel and beg for mercy and forgiveness. How wrong Putin is .
 
Russia is trying to kill the people of Ukraine in any way they can - shoot them, blow them up or destroy their source of heat & let mother nature FREEZE THEM.
Praying for the Ukrainian People - fighting for their freedom

russian pigs want to force you to start peace/truce negotiations... simple is that IMHO
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The Russians are achieving an extremely effective strategy of making life unpleasant for civilians and interfering with manufacturing, transportation, and all the other industries supporting the military. To claim that their actions are ineffective is just stupid.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The objectives are clear: To demoralize, to punish. They did it in Chechnya. They go and unleash an almost genocidal campaign, then they stop and say "this is to blame, love us and we'll feed you and save you". Then they place a puppet to brainwash the survivors minds (1)

To terrorise. That's what terrorists do.

The Russian army of rapists and child killers cannot defeat a modernized motivated Ukrainian force, so they attack things that cannot attack back. Karma will seek them out soon.

Perhaps it might also be that "they also want to damage the quality of everyday life so that suffering citizens will start questioning the intransigence of their political leadership". washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/inatl/l鈥

Just wondering if a mass supply of Tesla Powerwall, solar panels and similar systems might make these strikes even more unproductive...
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
they're trying to make all Ukrainians leave
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
You try to find a rationale explanation? But the Russia is not acting with logic, they do not have the same information, you do not know their goal, you do not know what Putin wants to believe.

In the end they will hit the generators. And you can't fix the big generators that fast. Like generators in thermal plants. What Ukraine needs is ATACMS to rip to pieces russian air-bases and their cities thermal plants.

Completely destroy the land mass named Ukraine and kill as many people as they can with the bombs.
 
bankruptcy and pariah status!
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Their plans are literally written on the size of a postage stamp!
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The same reason they're using old T-62 tanks which keep stalling in combat (or are missing parts), and sending conscripts into WWII-style human wave attacks: they don't know what else to do.

In reply to @IAPonomarenko
To show that we are harming/killing Ukrainians so the public at large stays distracted from the fact the Russian military is getting curbstomped all over the place. This minimizes the prospect of open rebellion of the people and the fascist war criminals stay in power.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Don't think even the Russians themselves know what they're trying to achieve 馃槀
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Russia fires these missile barrages out of childish anger and spite. There is no military gain in doing this so I believe it's to satisfy Putin and the Russian pro war faction that they are hurting Ukraine. Also today's attack was due to the EU labelling Russia a Terror State
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Der ganze Angriffskrieg ist idiotisch und sinnlos!
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The war would end the day Ukraine starts hitting targets and critical infrastructure deep inside Russia!
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I think these missiles are deliberately targeting Ukrainians. If Ukrainians stop to fight, and demand to surrender, Zelensky will have to give up. Russia wins the war and get Ukraine.

They are constantly reminding us that they are not able to win on the battlefield, so they use terrorist tactics, attacking infrastructures needed by the civilian population.

Russia had to expand their footprint now or in the end Russians are faced with an ill and aging population. It was a desperate ploy, but now the future is very clear for Russians and it's not good.

These strikes have insured that the rest of us in the civilized world will not let our governments abandon Ukraine. Good versus evil.

as long as Zelensky and his puppets like Ilya Ponomarenko are safe and getting rich till then they'll keep fighting this American proxy war

It鈥檚 just a part of their attritional campaign. They think they can freeze the Ukrainian population into demanding negotiations. They are wrong.

They are trying to help Putin get hard again.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Aren't you worried that at some point, you guys won't be able to restore power? Are you getting enough generators? Isn't it time to lunch a crowdfunding campaign for generators and small wind/solar panel power units?
