Happy to be corrected, but it strikes me that Russia is fighting a war against the civilian population of Ukraine: precision strikes on schools, hospitals, cultural centres and apartment blocks. We have witnessed millions of refugees fleeing to the west and hostages/deportees being taken to the east. We have reports of barbarous behaviour against children. This report from the ABC (ideologically similar to the BBC, for what's that's worth) details anti-personnel mining and booby traps surely left to injure or kill civilians:
Ukrainian forces pushed out Vladimir Putin's men from the eastern region of Kharkiv but, in the Russian military's wake, they found explosives hidden everywhere, from fields to a child's bedroom.
