Putin is being squeezed hard. This may not end well.
In Russia food prices are skyrocketing, the ruble is crashing, and the global oil prices need to rise about 33% just for their government to make ends meet. The Russian government is calmly telling the people to relax and not hoard foreign currency. The Russian people in turn are freaking out and hoarding foreign currency.

It doesn’t help for Putin to tell his loyal serfs not to worry, when everything he is doing is leading to a wider scale war that may spell the end of Russia as we know it.

According to Ukrainian sources, 32 tanks, 16 howitzers and 30 trucks hauling ammunition and fighters crossed into the Luhansk region from Russia.

Putin is trying to reconstruct an all-powerful Russian empire that never existed except in his fantasies. Both the Tsarist Empire and the USSR fell apart like shanties of rotten cardboard. The same is likely to happen to Putin’s tattered “empire” of fairy dust.

The main question is how much of the rest of the world will Putin take with him when he disappears in a toxic cloud?

Poland has responded to the ceasefire in Ukrine by realigning its entire force structure east, to fight the Russians in case of invasion. Both Sweden and Finland are examining ways to deepen cooperation with NATO, and Moldova is edging towards changing its traditionally neutralist stance.

In one form or another, these states are preparing for war. Eventually, one or many – but most likely the Poles – are going to push back against Russian aggression in Ukraine, either with “volunteers” or overtly with some sort of joint units. And then there will be a crisis, because some NATO states will be in a war and others will back them up.

China is watching the expanding Russian war in Eastern Europe very closely. China is not at all worried. For this conflict, they can only smile. No matter how it plays out China will benefit.

I read an article about germany's airforce that said they only had about 150 combat capable aircraft in their entire military right now. Europe is not fit to fight Russia right now.

Putin screws up all the time. Chess master my ass. When he lost his seat on the G8 that was when I started wondering about his mind. That position gave him an excellent chance to bring Russia out of poverty and into a modern successful country as well as a very influential one in a legal nonaggressive way. It's all been downhill from him losing that position really.

Clueless. The Russian propaganda worked well on you too I see.
For awake ppl a lot persons here fell for classic Russian propaganda. All you have to do is look into how Russia's brand of propaganda has always worked. They didn't even change the playbook. Just updated it some for the digital age. It's sad really.

In one form or another, these states are preparing for war. Eventually, one or many – but most likely the Poles – are going to push back against Russian aggression in Ukraine, either with “volunteers” or overtly with some sort of joint units. And then there will be a crisis, because some NATO states will be in a war and others will back them up.

China is watching the expanding Russian war in Eastern Europe very closely. China is not at all worried. For this conflict, they can only smile. No matter how it plays out China will benefit.

China would love nothing more than to buy up Russia. They're business partners, not friends really.

If this war happens, China is the new superpower without having to fire a shot.

Re: Putin is being squeezed hard. This may not end well.
Putin screws up all the time. Chess master my ass. When he lost his seat on the G8 that was when I started wondering about his mind. That position gave him an excellent chance to bring Russia out of poverty and into a modern successful country as well as a very influential one in a legal nonaggressive way. It's all been downhill from him losing that position really.

Europe is going to freeze
While bankrupting itself.

The united states would be destroyed without world reserve currency status, and that is taking place as we speak.

Clueless. The Russian propaganda worked well on you too I see.
For awake ppl a lot persons here fell for classic Russian propaganda. All you have to do is look into how Russia's brand of propaganda has always worked. They didn't even change the playbook. Just updated it some for the digital age. It's sad really.
