They’re going to be razing extra hard after their super embarrassing “great offensive”.

If you take a look at Syria since ~2011, that's how a Russian victory looks like, rubble and empty spaces.
They just bomb everything until no one and nothing is left.
I hope the Russian government gets replaced with a better one that actually cares about their own people's lives.

One saving grace is that doing it this way uses an absurd amount of munitions and even Russia can't demolish every building without munitions shortages happening. In Syria they used up almost all of their aviation PGMs and resorted to using dumb bombs mostly and I think that might even be well reflected today outside of the rare Kinzhal a lot of the VKS' missions seem to be dropping dumb bomb FABs these days https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RRA1170-1.html

Has one ever existed in this century?

I think the closest thing was Mikhail Gorbachev, but that one was still in the Soviet Union, not Russia.

I do not see how dance music can add to the cause of the Ukrainian people.

Are these white phosphorous? Or are these a different type of incendiary ordinance?

Does this type of incendiary munition usually cause fires to spread in the area? I am asking because I saw many videos like this, but never any "aftermath" footage of burned down towns or villages.
Ukraine is pretty wet these days, there was even some snowfall this week, how would that impact the effectiveness of this type of ammunition?
