Russia is now in a 'much worse military situation' with Finland in NATO
With a standing army of 200,000 and modern military equipment, Russia Finland’s joining NATO compromises Russia’s security. Meanwhile, Ukraine is starting to launch a spring counter-offensive.
Putin is rumored to be becoming increasingly paranoid, fearing assassination. Finland’s official joining forces as a NATO member last week only makes him more nervous.
The Ukraine military has begun its spring counter-offensive as Russian troops prepare to pull back across the front lines. Ukraine has trained 40,000 new "Storm Brigade" troops and is armed with an expansive array of new weapons systems, new German-made tanks, and its ammunition stockpiles replenished.
Simultaneously Ukraine has listed its terms to begin negotiations with Russia for an armistice. Putin, however, is showing no interest in a negotiated peace, despite the collapse of his country’s economy and now well over 200,000 casualties.
Putin, despite all this, Putin seems to be abandoning the Wagner Group and its military force that’s made up of prisoners and mercenaries because he fears its leader Yevgeny Prigozhin may be joining other military leaders and Kremlin politicians in preparing to over-throw him as Russia’s leader.
