In the Ukrainian conflict Russia has been targeting the Ukrainian basic infrastructure in recent weeks, with the emphasis currently on energy supply infrastructure such as electricity. If Russia continues with this strategy what would be the next likely target to concentrate on? The water supply infrastructure is a likely and obvious target. This has in fact already been taking place as demonstrated by the reports below:
The mayor of Zhytomyr, a city of 263,000 people, said Tuesday’s attacks had knocked out the power and water supply, while two explosions rocked an energy facility in the city of Dnipro, a city of nearly 1 million, causing serious damage, according to Tymoshenko, the Ukrainian presidential aide.
Some groups are already helping teach civilians and medical professionals in Ukraine about treating injuries like frostbite and will likely incorporate wilderness survival training like starting fires and purifying drinking water to help civilians prepare for life without reliable heat, electricity, and clean water,
Taking this in consideration and also that Russia has a track record of using this tactic in past conflicts in an attempt to break the will of it’s adversaries, it is prudent to be prepared for this eventuality and ensure that there is clean drinking water available both for the civilian population and the military, even under the most adverse conditions.
Be prepared for this eventuality!
