Maybe they WERE targeted with such weapons, but if so the primary suspect would have to be the western alliance. Why do I say this? Because the narrative doesn’t hold water. This DEW is not being used as a surveillance tool. The energy needed to cause such symptoms far exceeds that needed for surveillance and clearly makes this a deliberate provocation. Especially in the current political climate, russia would be incomprehensibly stupid to do this. Staging a false flag against russia would make much more sense.
