Take Chechnya. Changes came.
.....to such an extent that Ukrainians will give up, like the Chechens did.
My personal analysis: Nobody in the West gave a flying f*uck about Chechnya (as unfair as it is), the situation couldn't be more different in Ukraine.
If Putin thought he could handle Ukraine as he did Chechnya, well...that was a horrific miscalculation.
Just look at NATO.....never been bigger....never been more unified.....never having more money and modern weapons....never been more popular in the populations.....and soon Russia is really encircled, with NATO at all fronts.
The from the Kremlin sold reason for this war that NATO came "to near" has developed into a joke!
