“There is no doubt that the missile attack was connected with Blinken’s visit. It took place a few hours before the US Secretary of State arrived in Kyiv. This is Russia’s attempt to demonstrate its muscles, to show its strength. This is an understanding of the logic of the actions of the Russian leadership, the logic Putin’s actions. Their actions are tied to visits, calendar dates, they are tied to elections,” Koshel emphasized.
According to the political scientist, in the coming months it will be possible to predict the logic of Russian actions based on the logic of election campaigns.
“We are talking about the elections of the Russian president, about signals to the Russian domestic voter. They need to cover up a lot of failures. Let’s not forget that Prigozhin’s trip to Moscow took place 2 months ago. Now the massacres have started in the Russian Federation, and the Russian leadership has chosen such election rhetoric,” Koshel added. .
