Russia Unleashes Scariest Weapon in Ukraine, Worrying Onlookers

There are plenty of things about Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine that jut don’t make much sense.

First, there’s the lack of any real strategy.  His soldiers are acting as indiscriminate terrorists, for the most part, and their actions have been internationally decried as “genocide” thus far.

And then there’s the baffling way in which munitions are being deployed, with some of Russia’s most seemingly advanced pieces of equipment being tossed around the nation all willy-nilly.

The latest example of this comes to us from Odesa.

Ukraine alleged at least some of the munitions used dated to the Soviet era, making them unreliable in targeting. But the Center for Defense Strategies, a Ukrainian think tank, said Moscow used some precision weapons against Odesa: Kinzhal, or “Dagger,” hypersonic air-to-surface missiles.

Ukrainian, British and U.S. officials say Russia is rapidly using up its stock of precision weapons, raising the risk of more imprecise rockets being used as the conflict grinds on.

Putin has long used his hypersonic capabilities to threaten the rest of the world with nuclear annihilation, with at least one official suggesting that any nuclear conflict between Russia and NATO would end in Putin’s favor in less than 30 minutes.

But if the Kremlin is being forced to utilize these items early, there’s no telling just how bad things are getting for Russia.
