He didn’t need 200,000 soldiers to recognize 2 failed proxy states that Russia is already propping up. He tried to bluff and bully the west with the build up but they masterfully called his bluff. Now NS2 is gone and Russia sanctioned and gained zero. Recognizing a puppet state you already control is not a victory. They only needed about 2k Russian peacekeepers to move in and stop the violence. Any attacks by Ukraine would be smashed by drones, airforce, and artillery fire from across the border.
Now Putin has no choice to invade or he looks like a weak fool. Meanwhile during this whole charade NATO has been sending more and more weapons but oh no it’s not weapons that will help Ukraine win the war. It’s weapons that would make Russians remember the first and second Chechen wars.
There is way to spin this by Garry b and archangesk claiming Russia doesn’t care about Kiev or Ukraine when Putin is giving speeches about Ukrainian history on the internet.
Man this is bad for Russia indeed. The only mistake the west made is that they haven’t given Putin an off ramp. And a well executed invasion has the potential to flip the world on its head.
This is the line of Vennediktov and the rest of the imbeciles from echo moskvy , the meduza gang, and Drozd inc.
Nord Stream 2 certification was suspended, ergo itl be back on once green's finish off the german economy in recession and are replaced by AFD, this is a gradual process
Putin has all the cards, he makes his choice when he wants, noone defines it for him
In fact he had time to bring forward everything including the kitchen sink.
It's the west which looks impotent sanctioning some randos and VTB bank.
I’ve never read Medusa in my life. I do my own analysis from multiple sources.
Sanctions never come in one wave. The west will escalate their sanctions at opportune time for MAX PAIN.
When Russian troops attack Ukraine positions Russia will get sanctioned. When Russia makes some legal declaration or Donetsk has elections/referendum their will be sanctions timed for that.
It’s sad that people on this forum don’t understand the basics and keep listening to spin guruus like Garry b and archangels and kvs
These guys might as well be getting paid for kremlin because in their eyes russia has never made a bad move.
Russia is sanctioning USA, and EU , EU is already experiencing recession from Russian gas sanctions
And USA will feel MAX PAIN when the titanium exports are barred ,
As for US sanctions, meh there are no US treasuries anyway so fuggit
With inflationary crisis currently wiping out US savings, along with housing bubble, derivatives crisis, Energy inflation, and now Titanium ban,
Pindos are in for MAX PAIN
