Another contribution from our editor, Boyan Stanislavski, who is currently in Sofia, Bulgaria. He is making some spontaneous observations and comments on Russia’s rather obvious weakness in communicating their objectives in Ukraine, as well as the advances of their army and the mistakes they have made. The Russian narrative is rigid and delivered in an irritating manner, which is a huge mistake on the part of Russia’s leadership — both political/civilian and military. And the Ukrainian helicopters taking out the fuel depot in Belgorod, which is Russian territory, is yet another example of the Russian approach’s hollowness and inefficiency in terms of public communication and, most likely, to some extent, military engagement. But, because we don’t know what the endgame is, we can only speculate.
