Is Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigohzin an idiot? Well it seems so. Anyone who puts their faith in the word of Putin must be an idiot. Instead it seems that this man has signed his own death warrant. If he thinks he will be safe in Belarussia he must be an idiot. His army is being disbanded and this leaves him vulnerable. He has embarrassed Putin and everyone sane knows what that means. A dose of poison is sure coming his way. He surely would have done much better to carry on with his plan to bring Putin down. Now he will be left looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. No other countries outside of Russia would offer this notorious war criminal any sanctuary. Now all he can do is wait for his fate.
Prigozhin has now been confirmed dead. Prigozhin was a fool. Prigozhin was a chump. Prigozhin set in motion a course of events that ultimately led to his death because he lacked the nerve to see them through to the bitter end. By challenging the authority of the Kremlin and then backing down or being talked out of it he had ultimately put a death sentence on his head.
NATO must ensure that Putin has no success at all in the Ukraine. It is a duty to ensure that Putin must fail in the Ukraine. Failure is the only way to ensure that Putin looks weak in Russia. Failure will lead to the removal of Putin. NATO must get involved now to ensure that Putin fails in the Ukraine. So far NATO has made too many mistakes in containing Putin’s Nazi ambitions so now is the time for action. Also NATO must quickly enroll the Ukraine into NATO and the EU without delay so that it can legitimately engage its forces against those of the Russians. NATO must do it now before it too late.
Failure to do this signals that NATO is prepared to sacrifice the Ukraine 🇺🇦 in order to retain stability in the West. This attitude allows Putin to legitimately target anyone he wants outside of NATO.
Whilst Putin engages in a game of Poker, destroying lives in the Ukraine : NATO plays a game of Solitaire.
Surely it’s time to expel Russia from the UN. Russia have demonstrated a willingness to breach human rights and are quite prepared to lie to the UN Council. Therefore they are unfit to be in attendance at voting that they can and will veto. It is imperative that the UN acts in support of the non aggressor, in this case the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia is clearly unfit to be a part of the United Nations Council therefore it must be expelled. The UN cannot condone a nation that is prepared to tell lies to the Council and is unwilling to address it’s infringements of human rights and what looks like war crimes committed in the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia’s presence in the UN is a huge embarrassment which prevents the UN from carrying out it’s intended purpose.
The clampdown on freedom of speech in Russia shows that Putin is not just at war with Ukraine but also with Russian citizens. Putin wants a return to the bad old days of Stalin, ruling with fear and harsh punishments.
Any pretences of an elected democratic leader fell by the wayside this week as Putin revealed to the World and to the citizens of Russia just who he has become: namely a dictator, brutal and ruthless tyrant a new Tsar of Russia willing to defend his privledge and position at any cost, even at an expense to his own citizens. Putin wants to turn Russia back into a military state exerting authoritarian control over it’s own citizens. Much the same as the Tsar. Everything that the Russian Revolution stood for and hoped for is about to reversed and buried as the new Tsar reveals his intentions.

I think the time has come to ask ‘ what would Churchill have done in response to the threat of Putin? We need a western leader to step up to the bullying behaviour of Putin. Someone who can galvanise Nato against the threat of Putin someone who is prepared to say that enough is enough and willing to make a commitment to support the ideas embedded in the democratic freedoms of the world . Ukraine 🇺🇦 is no match by itself to the overwhelming war machine that Russia is bringing to bear. This is democracy and democratic freedom being crushed by a powerful bully without any support of it’s so called friends who supposedly share the same values. It’s time for a real world leader to step into the shoes of Churchill.
