UK Intelligence Claim Russia Targeting Populated Areas In Ukraine.
Russian forces are targeting populous areas in Ukraine, according to British military intelligence, but the strength of the Ukrainian opposition is limiting their approach.
In a recent briefing, British military intelligence stated, “The scale and strength of Ukrainian resistance continue to surprise Russia.” “Russia has responded by targeting populated areas in multiple locations, including Kharkiv, Chernihiv, and Mariupol.”
“Russia has previously used similar tactics in Chechnya in 1999 and Syria in 2016, employing both air and ground-based munitions,” British military intelligence said.
Russia has denied that it is targeting civilian areas on several occasions.
