"So, as the Western media increasingly fails to suppress the gruesome reality of Ukraine’s military failures, it's unfortunately likely that Kiev will increase attempts to deliver some sort of impact elsewhere, and despite reports that Ukraine’s targeted assassinations have likely left a bad taste in their NATO handlers’ mouths, its equally unlikely that they are in any position to restrain the brutal apparatus they have been so instrumental in creating. While Kiev’s Western partners publicly evangelize values like freedom of speech, democracy, and the rights of the individual, privately they arm, train, and intimately collaborate with an organisation that now openly boasts of carrying out terror attacks against civilian infrastructure and political adversaries, cynically targeted for simply disagreeing. All things considered, it’s now absolutely obvious that Western moral outrage mysteriously evaporates at the Russian border, with no crime against Russians, or those calling for balanced debate, being unforgivable in the West. Sadly, it seems NATO’s proxies in Kiev are determined to license, facilitate, and then ignore increasingly sinister and brutal “operations” by the SBU and its paid accomplices, with Washington’s and Brussels’ willful “a-la-carte” attitude to morality remaining as stunning as it is indefensible."

You're proud disingenuous scum & douchebags rotting in your own turpitude.
The drone attacks that Ukraine has launched at Russian targets inside Russia are only symbolic, designed to let the Russian people know that they are carrying out genocide against their neighbor. How else would they know? A Russian citizen can't even hold up a blank piece of paper in public without being arrested and jailed. Per Putin edict, you can't use the word "war" to describe what is taking place in Ukraine. (There are some Russian citizens who are fed up with their government and have been carrying out attacks against infrastructure targets inside Russia. These have more tactical effect than the drone strikes, but the soldiers involved are Russian partisans, not Ukrainians.) The actions that Ukrainians are taking to defend themselves, and the aid their allies are rendering, are completely justified. AND they're effective! Putin is losing this war.
I witnessed a fight the other day. A bully was beating up a smaller child, and not wanting to accused of being pedophiles, none of the adults wanted to get involved. The smaller child was punched and kicked for several minutes, then he got angry and aimed a punch at the bully which only just contacted. "What a violent little bastard!" the person nearest me hissed. "It just shows that the big one was right to beat him up." Everyone agreed with this, so we watched the bully finish the job. This is Russian morality.
Putin invaded for territorial expansion. Just like Hitler, he has done this several times with different countries which he had tried to absorb into Russia. He should be stopped and Ukraine should be supported in the defense of their country. You should never let a power mad dictator go unchecked when he/she starts wars and invades sovereign states to further increase his/her power. If we let it go too far, we will likely end up with WWIII and see nuclear weapons used which would be bad for everybody.
I like to think about how I'd feel if I were in others' shoes so that I don't get exposed as a hypocritical fucking asshole. In regards to Ukraine, I think, "If my country was being invaded, would I give one single shit what awful stuff my government had to do to stop it?" And because I make it a habit of not lying to myself, I recognize the answer is no, my government could war crime the fuck out of anything they wanted to stop the invasion.
Stupid idiots who lie to themselves and everyone else on the internet would probably say something else.
