The United States has been openly bragging about how much money they’ve been spending to fund the Ukrainian military’s war effort against Russia, fueling a proxy war with the intention of backing Putin and his allies into a corner.
At the same time, Russian state media has been arguing that they are directly at war with the west in a defensive effort against NATO incursions on Russian sovereignty.
On numerous occasions, Putin and other high ranking members from within the Kremlin have warned that anyone interfering in its military operations in Ukraine would be met with “deadly force.”
Russian state media has also issued stark warnings that both the East and West coast of the United States could be wiped out with just four nuclear missiles, with a member of Putin’s parliament stating “there would be nothing left” on either coast aside for a mushroom cloud “visible from Mexico.”
While the west has grown rather comfortable, thinking war has been largely eliminated in favor of peaceful trade with powerful global partners, by placing major sanctions on Russia, the United States and its allies have essentially brought trade with Russia to a grinding halt. So what does Putin have to lose?
Should the United States continue to fund Ukraine in this war – as leadership has made clear it will – the unstable Putin may very well follow up on prior threats made, and put an end to the fighting once and for all.
