Former head of Ukrainian Security Service: Putin can’t conquer Ukraine but he can start a WW3

I agree with this analysis. Don’t think of the Russian military as a powerful combined-arms team. Think of Russia as a corrupt-as-hell country (Mexico?), with nukes and best-in-the-world propaganda.

    Putin Can’t Conquer Ukraine But He Can

    Start a Third World War, Smeshko Says

    “The conversion of Ukraine into a flourishing and

    strong democratic country would be a death sentence

    for the existing authoritarian regime in Russia and

    even represent a danger for its disintegration,” the

    Ukrainian presidential advisor said. Consequently,

    Putin felt he had to suppress Ukraine in order to

    protect his personal power.
