I would think they would have martial law there. The Russians may be occupying that land but the Ukrainians that live there probably don’t consider themselves Russians. They probably know what is going on. They know that their brethren are fighting and making up ground on the Russians. If I were Putin, I would consider the locals hostile to my cause and wouldn’t want them wandering around next to my troops.

An alarming note. As we all know, Putin has been threatening using nukes for some time.The Russians haven’t spoken to the US since May. They just called the US, UK, Germany and other countries to let them know that they think Ukraine is going to set off a dirty bomb in Ukraine and blame it on Russia. Russia said they were just calling to make sure everyone knows it was Ukraine who set off the bomb. Russia was sent a response that basically said there is no way they would blame anyone except Russia.

Russia gearing up for escalation and pre blaming Ukraine?

Russian logic is strangely similar to a certain US political party.

The consensus in the West is that Russia FU and accidentally sent it there. Makes sense since they are running out of soldiers with any military training. I don’t think this will start a war between NATO and Russia unless Russia announces that it was intentional and start sending more.

It sounds like there's a bit of uncertainty about the origin of the missile. Some reports are saying Russia. Some are saying unknown. I even saw a report saying it was an accidental Ukranian missile that was heat-seeking after a Russian missile, or something like that. Sounds like we need to wait for more info on the story.
