“Wanted Dead or Alive” by the world at large, sans China, Vlad is one step away of being assassinated or committing suicide. Things have not gone well for the Murderer of Children.
The Invasion of Ukraine has not gone as planned. Defense department heads are either rolling or collectively, disappeared or killed on the front. What sets this invasion apart is the ill planning and ill forecasting by, not only the Russian Generals, but by those “talking heads” at large, who failed to recognize the extent of Vlad’s commitment to invade.
Stalin zeroed in on Red Army generals. Putin has replaced at least eight generals and the signs are that he is only just getting going. Sergei Shoigu, the defense minister and once a trusted hunting companion, has largely disappeared from view. Some say he co-planned the latest invasion with senior FSB generals rather than the army top brass, hence the breakdown in logistics, the lack of preparation, the confusion about the real aim of the war. So FSB officers have been placed under house arrest. The securocrats who kept Putin in power are being set up as his scapegoats.
