Putin managed that NATO is stronger than ever before.
Yes, we can tell that because Ukraine got instant HATO membership and complete HATO protection from a Russian invasion that HATO was created and maintained all these years to deal with.
HATO has proven to be weak and toothless... like the EU.
Its over 2 weeks now and Russia lost the information war, it is worldwide isolated in economy, sports and culture.
So no change there...
It lost enormous amounts of money.
It has made lots of money too, gas prices are ridiculous.
Russians cant travel anywhere and those outside Russia are stuck.
Parties like AfD or Lega Nord openly distance from Russia.
They clearly have no backbone, so no real loss... who wants cowards on their side in a fist fight?
On the other hand, ukraine is lost for russia. Ukrainians give fierce defense and are supplied with endless stream of weapons. Russia already suffered very high casualities and gained nothing. Russia already gave up to install a puppet regine, since it could not be stabilized.
So the western media keeps saying, but why block RT, why ignore what Russia is saying on the matter... is it because what the west is saying does not match reality on the ground?
One has to wonder? Who adviced Putin to do this?
Nobody , even strong supporters of russia, can see any positive in this.
Nazis with nukes and bio weapons on his border... that is all you need to know.
