it will make the general population sit up and notice . They are being told most days on TV about the energy infrastructure attacks in UKR . they will be shitting themselves about things kicking off in their own back yard now .The UKR's appeared to have used Soviet Tu 141 UAV's, interesting for two reasons, ancient Soviet tech still works and they were not western weapons. The Russian called this an act of terror as you would expect, but apart from trying to send a message that Russia is vulnerable I cant see any strategic goal. The Russians responded with a strike on 17 strategic targets damaged
and don’t you think they showed a great deal of restraint targeting airbases ? there are more symbolic targets nearby they could’ve hit .
