Despite what anyone may claim the sanctions from both the East and West are now kicking in on Russia and other nations are finding alternatives to Russian energy during the Russian Ukraine fight.
None of them were bullied in the end by Putin’s Russia.
More sanctions are needed this week as more can look to nations that neighbor Russia’s moves this week only.
In this current fight and war news those nations know more than most of us about what Putin’s imperialist strategy was.
Which has backfired on him spectacularly so.
New deals can continue to be formed.
Good people of the world in both the East and West were not bullied by Putin in the end.
Nor are Russians in Russia who continue to see what he has done is not, and will not, ever, work.
