Yet another terrorist attack organized by the Russian occupiers against a peaceful demonstration in Kharkov once again forces us to raise the question of taking the war to Russian territory.
Naturally, Ukrainians are not like the Kremlin barbarians and therefore they should not blow up people at peaceful demonstrations. However, any enemy combatant and any enemy target on the territory of Russia is a lawful military target.
A combatant is anyone who is a member of the Russian military or paramilitary organizations, except for the medical and religious personnel. Starting with draftees (even if on leave) and ending with the Commander-in-Chief Putin. “Every time you see one, kill one”—that’s how.
Military facilities are obvious enough targets, but one can also attack dual-use facilities, such as bridges, transport infrastructure, the power grid, communication centers, etc. Naturally, such attacks may cause collateral damage (which, naturally, ought to be avoided) among the civilian population. As long as one does not violate the principle of proportionality, the laws of war are being respected. Moreover, such activities need not be conducted by the UAF. It can be done by partisans.
To the especially stubborn “vatniks”, like Klenskiy who likes to (unsuccessfully) write complaints on me to the Prosecutor General’s office, I’ll make the following clarification. I am not calling for war or for terrorism. I am merely discussing the options available for implementing Ukraine’s right of self-defense against the Russian aggression, which began with Russia’s invasion [sic] of Crimea. Self-defense is a lawful activity, and the right to it is enshrined in Article 51 of the UN Charter.
J.Hawk's Comment: The guy's blog is called "Notes of an Estonian Banderite", and he is running as a candidate from the Estonian Freedom Party. Needless to say, if one were to make similar comments concerning a Western country, there'd be a swift and severe reaction, including by the law enforcement. It's OK to advocate terrorism in the West, as long as you advocate it against the "right" enemy.
