Putin’s Three-Step Plan to ‘Tame’ Ukraine Exposed, and There’s a Way to Defeat It | Science | News

More than two months later, experts have begun to analyze the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with patterns beginning to emerge from the siege of several cities, including Mariupol and Bucha. Dr. Keith Dear, a former British military adviser, has pointed out that Putin has a “one-two-three tactic to subdue Ukraine”. According to the former RAF intelligence officer, the Kremlin’s first move in Ukraine is to silence the country by cutting off communications within the country and with the outside world.

This can be achieved by taking down mobile phone towers, as was the case in the destroyed city of Mariupol, which had a communications blackout for weeks.

Dr. Dear continued: “Then when no one can hear the screams, the hunger, a slow constriction through the sieges.

“And finally savagery: indiscriminate killings, collective punishment, maybe genocide.”

He added that this is exactly what happened to Mariupol, which was one of the largest cities in Ukraine and which, according to Putin, is currently under Russian control.

According to Professor Anthony King, an expert in urban warfare, Putin may attempt a similar Mariupol-style siege on several other Ukrainian cities.

He tweeted: “The fact that RUS has decided not to storm the Azovstal steelworks is deeply significant for the Donbas.

“There they face three cities of 100,000 (Sloviansk, Severodonetsk and Kramatorsk) and many other smaller cities.

“Each one could be a potential Mariupol.”

However, Dr. Dear believes there is a counterattack to the Russian forces’ attempts to create silence and then starvation.

In a text message to a Ukrainian parliamentarian, he revealed that he had witnessed the grim details of how the Russian military “doesn’t touch civilians”.

He wrote: “If, in Kherson and Melitopol, people rush against Russian tanks and go out to protest, it is because they still have communications.

“In small towns [around Bucha]where there are no mobile communications and no internet, everything looks completely different.

“Civilians are shot. Just for fun. For pleasure.

“They took me down a street… full of dead grandmothers and grandfathers.”

In Mariupol, Russian forces are reportedly preparing a military parade in which they will force Ukrainian civilians to put on soldier’s uniforms and pose as prisoners of war.

The reports about the strange plans of the Russian forces were confirmed by Petro Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol.
