One of the main reason for Putin's invasion of Ukraine was to weaken and keep NATO at bay. If anything NATO is now stronger and more resolute. And NATO is growing: Finland and Sweden have just applied for membership.

European nations are quitting Russian oil and gas and finding alternate sources of energy. Businesses don't want to deal with Russia. McDonalds, automakers and other companies are leaving Russia. A year ago, most of the world didn't give Ukraine much thought. Now Ukraine is popular and Russia is a pariah.

Not to mention Russia is suffering embarrassing military losses and their casualties are piling up.

    Bingo, Curt.

    It seems that the US having Ron Burgundy as President has forced Europe to see Russia as their own opponent. Seems they can't be spectators to a fight between the US and Russia with "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" in the Oval Office.

    Putin must be scratching his head.
