Serhiy Fursa on how not to play along with terrorists

Russia continues terrorist attacks. And will continue.

What about us?

And nothing. The fact is that the best response to terrorist acts is no new response, no new action. Besides, of course, measures to minimize damage from future terrorist attacks. Ukraine must continue the war, just as it led it before. Because this led to Putin’s despair, after which he resorted to terrorism. So we are doing everything right.

What is the terrorist’s goal? Scare. Break down. It is clear. For this purpose, they blew up houses in New York. Terrorist attacks were carried out in Europe for this purpose. Sow fear. Sow despair. Force to surrender. This is the main idea of ​​terror. But not only. Does the terrorist want to force us to change our behavior? Why? Because he loses. A terrorist loses on the battlefield and wants you to change your behavior. And they became weaker. Because the terrorist will already lose. So the Ukrainian troops are doing everything right. And the Russians want to force the Armed Forces to change their behavior. Why play along with them?

Sow fear. Sow despair. Force to surrender. This is the main idea of ​​terror. But not only. Does the terrorist want to force us to change our behavior? Why? Because he loses

Did the New York attacks hurt America? Of course. But what really weakened the US was retaliation. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq weakened the USA. They were dragged into the swamp. And now they are forced to get out of it. What did the Europeans do after the terrorist attacks in Paris? They marched out, held candles, demonstrated unity. Weakness, you say? And in fact, that is power. Because such an answer is the only correct one. Because such an answer scares the terrorists. Because they do not achieve the goal. They cannot intimidate. And they cannot change society. That society with which they cannot compete. Because an open democratic society, oriented towards progress and the future, is always more successful than a closed clerical one, oriented towards the past.

Does this mean that there is no need to fight terrorism? Of course not. Just don’t let a terrorist change your behavior. Many Ukrainians demand that we retaliate against enemy territory. But stop. Why? At the same time, there are two theses: “strikes on civilians will not break Ukrainian resistance” and “strike Russian cities in vain.” To what? Will Putin capitulate after that? Of course not. Will Russian society demand an end to the war after that? Using the example of the Ukrainians, we see that this will not work. How it did not work during the Second World War. Moreover, it did not work on both sides, and here we remember not only the constant shelling of London, but also the bombing of Dresden. When Putin sends mobilized people to war and they are killed, most of the relatives and friends of these mobilized people will not hate Putin, but Ukrainians. Similarly, strikes on Russian cities will give us satisfaction, but will strengthen Putin’s position. And most importantly, they won’t give us anything that would improve the situation on the battlefield. Moreover, conventional India and China will start saying that “the truth is somewhere in the middle”, that “the Ukrainians do the same as the Russians”. The world supports Ukraine, because we are fighting on the side of light. And no matter how attractive the darkness is, we have to stay there.

When Putin sends mobilized people to war and they are killed, most of the relatives and friends of these mobilized people will not hate Putin, but Ukrainians. Similarly, strikes on Russian cities will give us satisfaction, but will strengthen Putin’s position

Thus, strikes on the territory of Russia will have only one goal – revenge. I agree, it’s nice. I really want to take revenge. But here it should be remembered that revenge is a dish that is served cold. And the best revenge will be victory in the war. The best revenge is for the Ukrainian armed forces to throw the Russians out of Ukraine, leading to the collapse of the empire. And they start a civil war. This will be revenge. And it will be very nice. Like footage from Yeysk. But it requires patience. And long work. All together. And most importantly – the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Which should not be disturbed. And who need support from Western countries. Support on the battlefield. And not for revenge, when you launch something to Voronezh. They will somehow manage with Voronezh. Therefore, increasing the power of air defense is the right response to terrorist attacks. And continuing to support the armed forces with those weapons that help on the battlefield. Weapons for war, not revenge.

The best revenge is for the Ukrainian armed forces to throw the Russians out of Ukraine, leading to the collapse of the empire. And they start a civil war. This will be revenge. And it will be very nice

A hard winter awaits us. Long Mondays await us. The Russians will continue their terror. Because their strength is running out. Their economy is depleting. And they can offer nothing but terror. Only terror. Like a fundamentalist crashing into a tower. He cannot win on the battlefield. And he is forced to go to terrorist attacks. So is Russia. They turned to terror, which they did not resort to in the first months of the war, because now they have no other mechanisms left. They could have been shooting at our energy infrastructure months ago, but they always hoped to win on the battlefield. They can no longer win on the battlefield. The main thing for them is not to lose now. And there are terrorist attacks.

And we have to pass this winter with dignity. We have to withstand the psychological terror and temptations of simple decisions that he will bring. Because the most important thing is what happens on the battlefield. Anything, any support from the West is important if it improves our position on the battlefield. Putin was unable to break the Ukrainian resistance and will now try to get into our heads. We know he will lose. But now we have to demonstrate it.
