Russian dictator Vladimir Putin continues to send Russian troops, intelligence operatives and heavy weaponry into the eastern Ukraine to try to take it over. It's not proving quite as easy as his theft of Crimea from Ukraine, a sovereign nation, but he is patient.
The West has responded to this brazen aggression by doing virtually nothing, Meanwhile, the Germans remain profoundly cynical and corrupt as they try to work out more business and other deals with this thug. This recalls the Hitler-Stalin pact, although of course the main players are nowhere that evil!
In any case, we'll pay for this appeasement.
