During the 5 months of full-scale war against Ukraine, Russian troops attacked civilian objects 60 times more often than military ones. This was reported by the Center for Combating Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
Thus, the occupiers inflicted 17,300 strikes on civilian objects and about 300 on military targets. First of all, the Russians strike at the civilian infrastructure of cities located along the front line.
Comment: Center for countering disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine:
“The Kremlin expects that the shelling will encourage local residents to stop resisting and speak out against the “Kyiv regime”. The “scorched earth” tactic replaced the Russian army’s failed bet on mobile penetration groups deep into the country.”
The Center notes that the reason for the “arrivals” on civilian objects is also the low accuracy of Russian weapons, the use of outdated or incorrect data.
According to the Center, more than 50% of the entire housing stock of Mariupol, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Buchi, Severodonetsk and Lysychansk is currently damaged or destroyed. And 8% of the population of Ukraine, or more than 3.5 million people, were left without homes (probably, we are talking about people who have the status of internally displaced persons).
Across Ukraine, more than 830 healthcare facilities, 2,129 educational institutions, and more than 530 objects of culture and art were damaged.
