MoD defence intelligence update summary on the situation in Ukraine at 17th January

There is a point in warfare where the difference between causing civilian deaths through incompetence, through negligence, or deliberate murder fades into insignificance.

Russia has reached that point when using missiles designed to hit ships and known to have accuracy issues against land targets against inland civilian infrastructure.

A regime waging an aggressive war which fires such missiles at a civilian power grid, only to hit instead a block of flats and kill forty innocent men, women and children, has just as much blood on its hands as a regime which orders or allows its soldiers to tie civilians' hands behind their backs and then callously shoot them.

Of course, Russia has done that too in Bucha and elsewhere.

Here is today's defence intelligence summary from the MoD.
