The attacks also have a political purpose: “With this, the aggressors show the Russian people that war is imminent and that they too can be affected. This would initially increase support for President Putin among the Russian population. end the war.”

The usefulness of such attacks and acts of sabotage thus seems clear. According to Sweijs, however, it is more doubtful who commits such acts. “Are these secret Ukrainian advanced units?” Or are we talking about the Russian resistance here?

Both are conceivable, says Sweijs. “There are several ways to attack such targets. Oil depots in Bryansk, for example, appear to have been hit by a ballistic missile.” Bryansk is quite close to the Ukrainian border. “Research facilities like the one in Tver, which are much further from the Ukrainian border, would be more prone to sabotage,” says Sweijs. “For example, through a cyber attack or by people on the ground.”

In any case, Ukraine’s involvement seems reasonable, according to Weijs. “Ukraine is under attack and has its back against the wall. Offense is the best defence.”
