Air defense was installed on the roofs of administrative buildings in Moscow. The ISW suggested that the Kremlin plans to create a news story and prepare the Russians for a protracted war. However, Russian human rights activist and opposition politician Mark Feigin has a different opinion.
He told Channel 24 about this. According to him, if the Kremlin had pursued an exclusively propaganda orientation, it would have found other softer methods, since the Russians “dutifully go to the front” anyway.
Probably the invaders want to hit Bankova
I think they are preparing strikes against the decision-making centers in Ukraine. They want to strike at Bankovaya, kill Zelensky, but they understand that this will not go unpunished,” the Russian human rights activist suggested.
In his opinion, the Kremlin understands that for appropriate actions it can “fly back well.” And Vladimir Putin is suspicious, he even installed air defense systems near his residence in Novo-Ogaryovo.
Thus, everything related to strikes against the Ukrainian “decision-making infrastructure” will sell well in Russia. Therefore, the Kremlin is preparing to place air defense assets tightly in advance. In addition, the Russians are probably afraid of Ukrainian drones.
Feigin answered why Moscow is installing air defense: watch the video
“They are really preparing, this is not a feigned action. Of course, they are paranoid and afraid of everything, but they are going to intensify the campaign, so the appearance of such funds is evidence that they are really going to fight with the “decision-making centers,” summed up the Russian human rights activist” . .
