As a Reminder, Just a Few Short Months Ago Western Analysts Were Saying That, for Russia to Destroy the Dam, would be Equivalent to “Blowing Its Own Foot off”. They Now Want You to Forget and Just Blame Russia

As a reminder, just a few short months ago Western analysts were saying that, for Russia to do this, would be equivalent to “blowing its own foot off”. They now want you to forget that and just blame Russia while ignoring that:
1. Once the reservoir finishes draining, the river will be much smaller and easier to ford by the AFU.
2. The flooding is forcing the abandonment of Russian defensive positions as well as the destruction of minefields along the River.
3. The destruction of the Dam means Crimea loses its water access.
The strategic benefits are obvious to Ukraine; up to this point, Russia could economize in the Kherson sector, as the wide-ranging river with no bridges precluded any serious amphibious assault.
By doing this terrorism, they’ve now created a realistic threat of such once the floodwaters recede, which will divert Russian reserves to cover this sector instead of allowing them to be used against the Ukrainian offensive further East.
