Ukrainian 'Kill Teams' Using U.S.-Supplied Black Hawks to 'Carry Out Assassinations Inside of Russia'

Ukrainian special forces "kill teams" are using US-supplied Black Hawk helicopters to carry out cross-border assassinations inside of Russia, according to a new report from The Times.

The US specifically told Ukraine not to use US-supplied equipment to attack inside of Russia at the start of the war to avoid dragging the US into the war and risking WW3 but now they're just looking the other way as Ukraine is regularly striking Russian territory (most likely using US-supplied intelligence).

From The Times, "How Kyiv's kill squads pick off commanders inside Russia":
The men of the elite Shaman Battalion have been carrying out [...] raids on infrastructure behind enemy lines for more than a year. Now they have revealed to The Times a new task: assassinating senior Russian officers.
"We have an increased number of targets, missions on specific people or targets, such as buildings where a general or somebody like that is located inside Russia," said "Intelligent", 30, a sergeant involved in planning the missions.

He showed a video of the ambush and added: "We've carried out more than ten operations like this in the past six months and we've been successful."

Ukraine claims to have killed 15 Russian generals since the war began. Moscow has confirmed the deaths of six, most killed near the front lines.

Shaman, which answers to the GUR, Ukraine's military intelligence, would not name their targets but other sources have provided clues.

In June, Russian channels reported that Colonel Vladimir Kuznetsov, commander of the 1009th motorised rifle regiment, was ambushed and killed in the Belgorod region while driving a service vehicle alone. Last month Lieutenant-Colonel Andrei Skuratov of the FSB security service was reported to have been killed when his vehicle hit a mine in the Bryansk region bordering Ukraine.

Shaman troops sometimes escort pro-Ukrainian Russian partisans across the border before breaking off to conduct their missions, a major in the GUR said.

"Sometimes other groups may claim our kills," Intelligent said. The kill teams that work best are six-man squads deployed by helicopter," he added: a US Black Hawk fitted with a pair of M-240 machineguns.
With Ukraine's US-planned counter-offensive faltering, Ukraine has changed tactics and is now focusing on conducting random terrorist attacks inside of Russian territory.

Just this morning, there was a large explosion at a mechanical plant in Moscow with widespread speculation fingering Ukraine.

Back in May, Zelensky said Ukraine would not attack Russian territory:
"We don't attack Russian territory, we liberate our own legitimate territory," [Zelensky said].

"We have neither the time nor the strength (to attack Russia)," he said, according to an official interpreter. "And we also don't have weapons to spare, with which we could do this."
In July, following a series of Ukrainian drone strikes inside Russian territory, Zelensky boasted about the war "returning to the territory of Russia":
"Gradually, the war is returning to the territory of Russia to its symbolic centers and military bases, and this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process," Zelenskyy said Sunday in his nightly video address.
While the Zelensky regime together with the Biden regime continues to escalate the war with every passing week, a new poll from CNN found the majority of Americans oppose giving additional funding to support Ukraine's war with Russia and say the US has "already done enough."

Nonetheless, the Biden regime is reportedly planning to announce yet another military aid package for Ukraine this week.
