Russian Soldiers are Looting

There is evidence that Russian troops are looting. It’s not just food, and that one makes some sense. These troops have not been properly supplied. They were also reportedly told to forage. This is as old as war. I might not like it on principle, but armies do this.

Nor should this be construed as justification. It’s not.
