Collective punishment in Eastern Ukraine

Ok, now we see the purpose of the “Russian invasion under humanitarian disguise claims”:

  1. the Ukrainian army has already declared that dead civilians in Donezk due to Ukrainian shelling are the responsibility of the rebels for placing rocket launchers in residential areas (otherwise known as the “Gaza gambit”),
  2. and now the “fear of invasion” is used to make sure that no humanitarian goods can get into Donezk, adding to the collective punishment inflicted (also a much-used technique in Gaza).
