Russian war strategy

"Kettling and murdering civilians" pretty well sums it up. Surrounding cities with artillery and pounding them into rubble, breaking the morale of defenders that have to deal with panicked civilians with nowhere to go.

The Russian army can do so with impunity because they control the airspace over the whole country.

We are looking at a country that will have an urban landscape similar to that of Germany following WWII.

Air superiority is absolutely crucial to the outcome of armed conflict in the 21st century.

So, leaving Ukrainians on the ground without air cover is tantamount to abandonment by Western governments.
