Russia Diversifying Its "Battlefronts" To Combat The West

This news comes briefly after a U.S.-led defense west coalition met for a conference at Germany's American Ramstein air facility. The defense minister of Germany, Christine Lambrecht, announced their decisive plan to send heavy anti-aircraft tanks to Ukraine. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin held a conference with lawmakers on April 27, where he shed some clarity on his defiance towards western intervention in the Ukraine war. “If anyone from outside moves to interfere in the current developments and creates unacceptable strategic threats for Russia, they should know that our response to counter these assaults will be lightning fast. It will be quick as we have all the tools for this. The kind that no one else can boast of right now,” he said.


Justin Crump, CEO of global risk analysis consultancy at Sibylline, believes that Russia has spoken against the western delivery of heavy artillery to Ukraine and has kept the combat inside Ukraine. However, the recent halt of energy supplies to Poland and Bulgaria is an alternative approach to military aggression against the West and its allies. According to Crump, potential “operations in cyberspace and other areas where Russia can start to extend the conflict and express the continued discontent at his support for Ukraine are helping to hinder Russia's progress on the battlefield.”


The recent explosions in Transnistria, where there has been no evidence that Moscow took part, can inadvertently benefit Russia. In this episode, the Ukrainian government decides to split up its army to its southwestern border while Russia's fight in the Donbas could result in a quicker victory. Ukraine has speculated that Putin is behind this, although some of the infrastructures destroyed in the explosions are Russian-owned. However, Russian troops have captured several towns in the east Donbas region. The southern Ukraine defense minister said that “meanwhile, in the besieged city of Mariupol, residents are facing increasingly desperate conditions.” 


Civilian casualties are rising as Russian airstrikes are targeting military infrastructure and railways. The artillery aid coming from the West is getting transported by railway and roads, hence becoming primary targets in attempted efforts to intercept and destroy weaponry as much as possible before it reaches its intended destination. These missiles have occasionally fallen on civilians. As Russia primarily targets its surrounding, the Donbas region has experienced and continues to have clashes between protesters and the Russian army. There are persistent shelling and intense bombings in the area that have reportedly killed seven people and injured 13 others. 


The meeting held on April 26, 2022, between United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Gutierrez and Vladimir Putin appears to have not accomplished the hopes of the Secretary-General. The aim was to allow the UN humanitarian efforts to reach civilians and grant them a safe passage to take shelter at a place of their choice. NGOs and authorities are skeptical of the effectiveness of humanitarian aid and are calling for a temporary 24-to-72-hour cease-fire for evacuations to be most operative
