I’m old enough to remember Kruschev banging his shoe at the U.N. and certainly the Cuban Missile Crisis where Kennedy called Kruschev’s - and Castro’s - bluff! To me, Putin and Crimea are looming in the same direction! This ‘‘leader’’ acts like a bull in a china shop and seems to be on a power trip!
And, to add fuel to the (already burning) fire, he’s enjoying unprecedented popularity in Russia!
Sanctions may have limited effects and Putin will quite obviously not listen to the West’s warnings.
Beware an BE aware!
