Russia has reportedly appointed a new general, with a history of targeting civilians, to take over operations in Ukraine.
- U.S. retired Adm. James Stavridis said Sunday on "NBC Nightly News" that bringing in Russian Gen. Alexander Dvornikov is an acknowledgment of Russia's failure to achieve the "quick takeover" they envisioned.
- "The appointment of this new general indicates Vladimir Putin's intent to continue this conflict for months, if not years."
- Dvornikov most recently oversaw Russian troops in Syria and was nicknamed the "Butcher" for his use of torture centers, systematic rape, and nerve agents.
- Will switching tactics be successful for Russia? If terrorizing civilians is going to be Russia's primary tool in Ukraine, how should the rest of the world react?
