Moscow, Russia — On Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he was mulling a lot of options in response to his demands on the west. He has previously asked that NATO deny membership to Ukraine and that forces be withdrawn from eastern and central Europe.
Putin has kept no secret about his desires to rebuild the USSR, with former USSR leader Mikhail Gorbachev even doing some interview spots in recent days. Russia has already invaded Georgia to take over and control strategic points of interest. They also invaded and annexed Crimea.
Now that we have another weak leader in office, Putin sees an opportunity to take the next step: all of Ukraine.
Putin has said that Russia will take any necessary military-technical measures to defend itself and what it considers Russian interests. He told Russian state TV that the Russian response would “depend on what proposals our military experts submit to me” and that the response could be diverse.
Putin continues to deny that Russia is out for a war with Ukraine, but with the military buildup along the border, that seems unlikely. The same action was taken during the Georgian invasion of 2008. Russia continues to maintain a military presence in approximately 20% of Georgia.
The invasion of Crimea resulted in the complete annexation of the peninsula. While former President Barack Obama talked a tough game, nothing stood in the way of Putin and his intentions to rebuild the USSR.
Now, it seems unlikely that Joe Biden will do anything different than the weak leadership he learned under Obama.
The moves by Russia could not come at a worse time for Joe Biden. He continues to see his approval numbers plummet across the US. There are multiple reports of turmoil in the White House and between him and Vice President Kamala Harris.
During Christmas events, Biden struggled to maintain his appearance of a solid leader. During scripted performances, he made one of his largest gaffes to date, saying he supported ‘Let’s go Brandon,’ the conservative statement against Joe Biden.
