Putin's "Things I can do in Ukraine without risking war with NATO" list:

Invade
Destroy power stations
Cut off food supplies to civilian populations
Bomb apartment complexes
Shell schools
Shell refugees on the road
Seize nuclear power stations
Hit hospitals with ballistic missiles
Use chemical weapons

And:
Lure Ukrainians out of shelter with false promises of ceasefires on escape corridors (see shelling refugees on the road). Repeatedly.
Shell nuclear power plant facilities; cut grid connection to crippled nuclear power plants (Chernobyl); threaten Europe with nuclear disaster.
Dictate inactions of foreign powers. (MIGs from Poland et al withheld)
Try to kill journalists in Ukraine.
Suppress any domestic or Ukrainian media coverage not matching the official Russian government position. (Ukrainian transmitter towers attacked.)
Forced labor of Ukrainians at seized power stations.

Use tactical nukes?
Use bioweapons?
Steal Ukraine's natural resources?
Depopulate Ukraine of Ukrainians? (2+ million have already left.)
Reinstall strategic nukes on Ukrainian soil?


Elsewhere:
Imprison domestic dissenters by the thousands.
In advance of Ukraine invasion, cyberattacks on foreign energy industry including US.

Yes, I couldn't agree more.

And Russia. See "Prevailing westerlies."

Default "We had to destroy the village in order to save it"

News reports are saying that the separatist-controlled town of Volnovakha in the Donbas region eastern Ukraine is in Russian hands after being "completely destroyed" by the invaders, but fighting continues for territory in the area.

I am not suggesting that people go here https://mail.1920.in/ but I have already done so.

It sends an email to a randomly selected (small) sub-set of Russian email addresses.

In the late 1980's there was a TV miniseries entitled "Amerika." The premise was that the US had been taken over 'bloodlessly" by the USSR.

I vaguely remember hearing a short satire on the radio, entitled "Kalifornia with a K!" One part was a traffic copter pilot (with a fake Russian accent, of course) reporting on an accident blocking a major intersection in some large Kalifornia city. The report concluded, "Firing rocket... Direct hit! OK, it's clear now!"

I remember thinking how "over the top" that seemed...

Apparently now Ukrainian apartment buildings and their sleeping civilian residents are also existential threats to the mighty Russia.

Does assassination of a prime minister or 3 bring NATO into the war? There's historical precedent for an assassination kicking things off (WWI).
And Russia has already been hitting trains, rail lines, buses, autos, subway entrances, residences, journalists, grandmothers, children. Their military seems about as precise or principled as an inner city gang member spraying rounds into crowds.
