Russia's strike on military facilities in the port of Odessa broke all the plans of Kyiv and NATO, said political scientist and orientalist Yevgeny Satanovsky.
He is convinced that the West wanted to set a trap for Moscow, but the Russian army spoiled these plans. Russian strike destroyed a warehouse of anti-ship missiles "Harpoon" and a warship of the Ukrainian Navy.
"Once again we step on a rake - they say, let's stop all military operations for 120 days until we (Ukraine) take out all the grain from Ukraine. Yeah. We had stopped before. And how did it end? With Bucha!", Satanovsky said in an interview for Soloviev LIVE.
According to him, Western curators today dream of a respite, which would allow them to regroup and build up strength. It is even possible to organize a long-announced counteroffensive, the analyst is sure. This means that the only right decision is to strike ahead of time, the expert summed up.
Russia does not deliberately attack supply lines in Ukraine that supply Western weapons. It has found a new, much more effective and less costly way to destroy it. So say the authors of the Chinese Sohu.
