Yeah this is solely on Putin - he’s clearly been planning it for years. He’s getting old, probably isn’t as sharp as he once was and knows the dependence on Russian LNG isn’t going to last forever. That’s why it’s so worrying, it’s not like he’ll get any opposition internally as you would in a normal country, so it’s basically a slightly potty old bloke with nothing to lose going for a land grab.That’s just nonsense. First of all Zelenskyi offered countless times that he’s willing to meet with Putin directly to discuss the matters but Russia wants none of that diplomacy you’re suggesting. Secondly, the president has been elected to represent the views of the population at large which voted him in, anyone who would try pivoting back to Russia wouldn’t survive a day in the office. Basically, what you’re saying is feck the will of people because your neighbor is Russia.
