US suggests Russian forces are devastating Mariupol because Putin is angry that Ukrainians are resisting

State Department spokesperson Ned Price said during a Tuesday press briefing that there are a number of theories as to why Putin's forces have "brutalized" the population with shelling and airstrikes.

"Mariupol is, of course, a strategic location," Price said. "But there also may be an element of vengeance... against this population, with Putin perhaps having been under the misimpression whether he was misinformed or just unwitting of reality that his forces would not be greeted as anything other than the aggressors that they are."

Price added that Russian forces have faced stiff resistance to the advancement of Russian forces in Mariupol.

Price added that the ferocity of the Ukrainian defense may have surprised the Kremlin leading to the ongoing onslaught against the besieged city.

1. Indeed.

Navalny is in prison for not dying when he was poisoned so it makes sense he would pummel innocent civilians for not letting him invade their country.
