„ “the involvement of these states in an armed conflict.”
Don’t they mean “special operation”?
Hey, how about if we help Russia in Ukraine? Like offering “We will totally send in troops into all the territory you don’t control yet, then bring in UN-approved inspectors and help Ukraine people with de-nazification, I think we still have the protocols from back when we did that in Germany.”
On Monday, following reports of the combat death of Russian General-major Vitaly Gerasimov near Kharkiv, Ukraine, Christo Grozev, the executive director of investigative journalism and intelligence group Bellingcat, reported that Russian forces relaying the news back to their superiors were forced to use an insecure phone line with a local sim card — that was promptly intercepted.
According to Grozev, Russian forces had no choice but to use the insecure line because Era — the highly secure cryptophone system implemented last year by the Russian Ministry of Defense which is supposedly guaranteed to work “in all conditions” — is down. And the reason the system is down is that Russian forces on the front destroyed all of the nearby 3G and 4G cell towers required for the system to establish a connection.
