Russia always tries to terrorize the nearest large city to the front line in order to create chaos and panic among the civilian population, Oleg Zhdanov believes.
For today Zaporizhzhia became a front-line city. It intercepted a barrage of rocket fire from Kharkiv.
Such an opinion expressed military expert Oleg Zhdanov on his YouTube channel.
“And now Zaporizhia is the closest big city to the front line. And Russia always tries to terrorize the closest big city to the front line in order to create chaos and panic among the civilian population. That is why, in my opinion, the intensity of shelling of Zaporizhia has increased,” he explained expert.
Zhdanov added that Zaporizhzhia is being bombarded with missiles, Zaporizhzhia is being bombarded with long-range Smerch-type rocket systems, and with S-300 missiles converted to the “surface-to-surface” class.
“That’s why missile attacks have increased in Zaporizhzhia. If it is still possible to fight missiles, I think that air defense means will be strengthened and the command will take measures to protect Zaporizhzhia from missile attacks as much as possible until the anti-missile complexes that are promised to us arrive, but are constantly postponing the deadlines for their transfer, especially Germany. It is still very, very difficult to defend against rocket salvo systems today. You see, Israel has already started supplying us with means of combating drones, maybe they will still dare some other air defense means, which they have, hand them over to us,” the military expert concluded.
We will remind you, the occupiers released about 10 shells in Zaporizhzhia.
