Four necessary remarks

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

The war continues and I take seriously the possibility of a nuclear attack on Kyiv, which political commentators. To all considerations "well, Russia can’t…" this war gave clear answers every time: it can. If it has not used nuclear weapons so far, it is only because it does not have the technical ability to do so.

I’m not panicking, I’m just repeating that I’m aware: every key I press can be the last in my life.

On this optimistic note – I continue (April 18, 2022 at 8:20 am).

From the beginning, I did not plan this unit. The idea to write it came to me as a result of reading the historiography on the topic, and this reading fell on the time of the war, hence the preamble, which is not present in the neighboring units written in the pre-war period.
