civilian losses may be civilians. would you grow tired of the war and put brush on their politicians to come? some can arrange with russia whether or not these are specifically aimed at civilians always does the function of russia just simply running out of precision weapons and not being able to target military targets without hitting civilians. they've certainly shown the last few weeks that they are not changing their stretching. they're willing to take the civilian losses basically for the, for the course. that is something that they are willing to do. and they haven't changed their tactics. and i think increasing now for people anywhere near the front line to this new crane, they have to be coach the fact that how far away they are from legitimate military targets. they are at risk. and if they don't follow these calls from the people in charge and craned to leave to get to safety than they are running, reverting for the risk that keith is calling for russia to be officially recognized as a state sponsor of terrorism. what could that achieve?
