Russia has so won this conflict, hands down, with Ukraine in their targeting sights and the West demonstrating nothing but weakness.
They have so intimidated Ukraine that Russia will be able to install a new government in Kyiv or just pull the strings on the puppets in place without ever firing a shot.
Moreover, Ukraine won’t be considered by NATO for membership ever again knowing that Russia will go to the mat over it.
Scare tactics can work if you carry a big enough gun and have the gumption to hold it to your opponent’s head! ;-)
