Putin's legacy is Ukraine (my 2 cents)

Lenin Stalin Putin - the Holy Grail of Mother Russia.
I havenít heard ďlegacyĒ used in any discussion but maybe Iíve missed it. This is his legacy and no one can stop him.

He will return what he has convinced himself is theirs.
He can absorb anything - financially (the country is basically his), militarily (lots of Russians), and there is no internal dissent.

Heís taking it all just because aside from a completely united US & Europe thereís no way to stop him other than wiping Ukraine (as the battleground) off the map. Ukraine is the breadbasket of Europe.

Now the big questions are:
How good is the Russian military? They put a lot of money into it but Iraq was supposed to be formidable too. Pure size will be enough for Ukraine though.
Can they occupy it? Itís cheaper to kill a million people than it is to govern them (this is new in the last 20 years) so whatever it takes as far as heís concerned.

Thereís almost nothing anyone can do to stop him. Heís rational in his mind (in a Russian sense) and heís also completely in control.

This is truly horrible but thatís how I see it.

On edit - never forget that Muscovites feel that itís their destiny to rule the world. Putin is from St. Petersburg but heís basically a Muscovite at this point.
