Creating a no-fly zone over Ukraine is one of the key points of de-escalation. Having failed in fulfilling its offensive ambitions, Russia is moving to a "war of annihilation." As of today, the Kremlin isn’t just waging war against Ukraine, it’s practically destroying the country. It’s not Ukrainian troops, but civilian infrastructure and residential areas that are subjected to Russian attacks. Russians are massively murdering peaceful Ukrainians. Only a radical response on the part of the Western powers to the current developments is able to stop the ongoing crimes against Ukrainians.
