Here we go once again. In amassing 150,000 soldiers near Ukraine's border, Russian President Vladimir Putin has actually caught the Biden administration and its European allies flatfooted.

He first surprised the world in August 2008, when a freshly revived Russian military rapidly squashed the Georgian military.

Next, Putin released a stealth operation in March 2014 to annex Crimea and financed a violent separatist motion in the commercial Donbas area that continues to this day.

Now, Kremlin main Dmitry Kozak is alerting that the break out of a significant war in eastern Ukraine would signify “the start of completion” for Kiev.

Holy moly! Is Putin truly trying

to take over all of Ukraine?

On Monday, European Union foreign- policy head Josep Borrell stated it would take just “a stimulate” to spark a blaze in Ukraine. There isn't much America and NATO can do beyond pushing Putin as they have actually always done– by releasing empty dangers. Economic sanctions have not discouraged Putin prior to and they will not prevent him now. Biden had bought 2 warships to sail to the Black Sea, but remembered them last Tuesday after Russia cautioned that they should “keep away for their own good.” Rating one for Putin.

On The Other Hand, Russia is moving 15 warships from the Caspian to the Black Sea. Score another one for Putin.

Truth be informed, Putin does not require to go to war. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is pleading for a four-power top with Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to restore a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. After smarting at Biden calling him a “killer,” Putin is demonstrating that he has a killer instinct, at least when it comes to foreign affairs.

Putin is advising the West that he might be abhored but he can't be ignored. Certainly, the most likely prospect is that Putin will continue to raise and lower tensions in Ukraine at will. After the Cold War ended, America and its allies believed they would create democracies from sea to shining sea in Eastern Europe.

They were incorrect. When it pertains to who is the Decider about Ukraine's fate, it isn't Biden or NATO. It's Putin.
