Why does the argument of "it is illegal to attack a belligerent on their own soil," seem to hold any weight with the Russian populace?

Why does the argument of "it is illegal to attack a belligerent on their own soil," seem to hold any weight with the Russian populace? Do they really not understand that when you attack a neighboring country and beging bombing their cities that they might in turn destroy military targets within your borders?

Do they not get that, were Ukraine not so poorly armed and dependant on a West that doesn't want to escalate, that every volley of missiles a Ukrainian power stations would be met in turn by power going out in Moscow, Moscow schools and hospitals getting hit by missiles (e.g. what will likely happen if they pull this on a wealthier neighbor with such missiles?) It's mind boggling. From ISW:

>The Kremlin is intensifying its information operation to promote a false narrative that the war will escalate if Ukraine receives weapons capable of striking Russian forces in occupied Crimea. Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov responded on January 19 to a New York Times report that US officials are considering providing Kyiv with weapons capable of striking Russian military infrastructure in occupied Crimea and southern Ukraine.[16] Peskov stated that Western provisions of long-range weapons to Ukraine that can threaten Russian forces in Crimea will bring ”the conflict to a new qualitative level, which will not go well for global and pan-European security.”[17] Peskov added that even the discussion of providing such weapons is ”potentially extremely dangerous,” but then noted that Ukraine already has weapons that it uses to strike occupied territories in Ukraine.

>Crimea is legally Ukrainian territory and Ukraine is within its rights under the laws and norms of armed conflict to strike Russian military targets in Crimea. It would be within its rights under international law and norms to attack targets in Russia as well, as the invading country retains no right to sanctuary for military targets within its own territory.

    I feel like it would be worth the risk of escalation to deploy enough missiles to Ukraine that the next time they want to cut the power and gas in winter time St. Petersburg and Moscow lose power and have heating gas facilities blown to hit. Maybe a few missiles into their new skyscrapers too.

    The Orc absolute disbelief that what they do to others isn't good when it happens to them would be worth it.

        Actually in 2021/22 those numbers starting rising again drastically when.... the separatists (russia army) started shelling again out of nowhere to make a scene again for pretext to invasion. All of this was very well documented. But Putin knows his followers are so retarded they won't care about any of that.

      If you start letting bullies with nuclear weapons annex territory by threating to use them it never ends. Be glad they keep NATO from direct involvement, at least until they use one.

          1/3 ain’t bad. If the attacks were a nothingburger, why has Russia repositioned their bomber fleet thousands of km to the east?

      They won't use the nukes because they will get glasses in a counter force strike and at best get a few cities which will just motivate the West to genocide them.

      The French and Israelis probably have more functional nukes than Russia at this point.

      Are you a retarded neo-con or something? Ukraine does not have the ability to strike targets deep in Russia save for a few meme worthy drone attacks.

      Yes, they are just as braindead as the rabidly pro-ukraine PrepHole poster.

    I don't really think most Russians actually believe that "it is illegal to attack a belligerent on their own soil". Ukrainians have hit Russian soil a few times over the course of the war with those kamikaze long range drones, basically the same as Russia's campaign with the Shahed 136 drones. the main difference between the Ukrainian and Russian attacks is that Ukraine has been more careful about trying not to cause non military casualties in their drone strikes, while Russia doesn't give a fuck and hits civilian areas.

    It does not occur to Russians that other countries even exist. In their minds every "nation" is a criminal enterprise that only exists because it stole land that rightfully belongs to Russians, as all land on Earth is in fact Russian land.

    This is the part (You) don't get. According to krokodil-saturated vodka "logic," it's not a different country. It's part of vatmoronstan.

    Therefore, anyone attacking loyal, patriotic vatmorons is committing an act of treason. Kill them all. But, rape them first as a "lesson."

    Then you get to loot all the cool stuff all those corpses don't need anymore.

    Are (You) on board now? Because, everyone else figured that out back in 2014 with regard to Ukraine.
