If you think Ole Vlad is going back to Russia and the Russian people with his hat in his hand and licking his wounds you are completely wrong and naive. Putin has to come out of this with a win of some kind. Sanctions are hurting the Russian people and he must make sure that their anger is directed at the West and NATO. It is entirely possible that he may go scorched earth on them and turn Ukraine into the surface of the moon. I hope not. Please let me explain.
