Putin Makes More Belligerent Threats Against Ukraine

It is  no secret that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine isn’t going according to the Kremlin’s plan, but there’s likely no scenario in which Vladimir Putin would ever admit as much.

Putin has been belligerent, arrogant at times, pushing a wild narrative that he and his people were “liberating” Ukraine from “Nazis” with a “special military operation”.  In reality, the world agrees that this is an invasion by Russia that has led to genocide against a nation whose elected President is a Jewish ancestor of Holocaust victims.

And now, even after Russia has been forced to move the goalposts far to the east as to avoid embarrassment, Putin is defiant, issuing new and ridiculous threats that seem to overstate his military abilities.

With Russia’s military action in Ukraine in its fifth month, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday warned Kyiv that it should quickly accept Moscow’s terms or brace for the worst, adding ominously that Russia has barely started its action.

Speaking at a meeting with leaders of the Kremlin-controlled parliament, Putin accused Western allies of fueling the hostilities, charging that “the West wants to fight us until the last Ukrainian.”

“It’s a tragedy for the Ukrainian people, but it looks like it’s heading in that direction,” he added.

Then came his wildest statement:

“Everybody should know that largely speaking, we haven’t even yet started anything in earnest,” Putin said in a menacing note.

At the onset of the invasion, all the way back in February, Putin and his commanders believed that they would take Kyiv in 72 hours or so – a glaring miscalculation that erased decades of Moscow’s military reputation.
