Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov told The Washington Post his forces are trying to destroy the Russian military by attacking Russian bases from within. He claimed they’re activating a “resistance force” that will launch attacks on the enemy force behind their own lines. The official explained the goal is to “ruin [Russia’s] stocks, ruin their depots, to ruin their headquarters, [and] command quarters.”
The undercover force Reznikov mentioned was allegedly committed in January after a law the country passed in 2021. Still, he didn’t admit to the attacks in Crimea. He claimed the Ukrainian military doesn’t have weapons capable of launching missiles into the annexed area.
