This was stated by Censor.NET editor-in-chief Yurii Butusov.
He writes: "What is a "humanitarian convoy" from Putin?
1 This is a demonstration that Putin no longer considers the LPR and DPR subjects of talks on the situation in Ukraine, and directly, without Medvedchuk intermediaries began to communicate with Kyiv as the only legitimate authority in the Donbas.
2 This is Putin's attempt to become the subject of an international peace settlement in Ukraine. "Humanitarian convoys" with mercenaries and arms did not produce results for the Kremlin. Liquidation of the DPR and LPR gangs, almost entirely composed now of Russian soldiers is just a matter of time. Now Putin is trying to once again become a decent human being, and to be treated not as an invader, but as a politician, he is sending humanitarian aid. His cynicism is extraordinary - while Russian mercenaries destroy our cities and kill Ukrainians, the person who organizes their criminal activities, wants to provide the victims of the Russian aggression with blankets and canned meat.
3 This means the failure of the DPR and LPR as quasi-public entities, recognized by Russia, i.e. a large-scale invasion of Russian troops will not happen.
4 This means that Putin gives a signal to Kyiv - dispose of this armed Girkins-Bolotov rabble - I will not mind.
5 This means that it only depends on Ukraine as how fast the destruction of the Kremlin dumped Novorossiia (New Russia) gang will happen.
6 This means that Russian gangs will start switching from open warfare to covert terrorist activities so that Putin remains in control of a hidden tool to destabilize the situation in the Donbas."
