Ukraine

I thought it was done in a way that was civil enough.

What I thought happened was the Ukrainians were demonstrating to the Russian government about what they could do.

I thought those shells were small ones that were carefully aimed to land in an open field intended to scare villagers, not to harm them.

The goal being to have them in turn worry their government about it, to tie up troops an equipment outside of the Ukraine guarding Russia's borders.
