We’ll all be making jokes at Russia’s and Putin’s expense, however other people will die within the inevitable mood tantrum. Hitting civilian objectives is the one solution Russia has for the rest. However it doesn’t matter what they do, this now presentations the Russian other people, inescapably, that Putin can’t give protection to Russian territory. Now not Kherson, Kharkiv, or the Donbas, and now not even Crimea. Ukraine is marching, they’re transferring, and not anything will prevent them.
Now not even nuclear threats. At this level, even Putin must be questioning whether or not his nukes even paintings. No doubt not anything else has labored as marketed. The very last thing he wishes is a sturdy NATO reaction. He’s misplaced the battle. He has to grasp he misplaced the battle. The endgame is close to.
That is moderately the limb to stroll out on, and odds are excellent I’ll be flawed. However my intestine says this battle might be over by means of the top of the yr, all Ukrainian lands liberated.
