LABELED: Who will stop the madmen? I am addressing the representatives of the political and economic elite of Russia. Are you sure you can control it? Are you sure that you have the strength to hold back the landslide chain of irreversible events that will drag us into a complete break in relations with the West and a military meat grinder? Can you keep the madmen, who are ready to risk thousands, if not millions of lives, within a millimeter of the Big Red Button, intended for a “limited nuclear strike” in order to “deter the aggression of superior conventional forces?”
America didn’t cave in—now what? Moscow escalates its demands to a crescendo: “Give us everything now!” At the same time, Moscow understands that “everything now” is impossible. Maximalism narrows the field of compromise, driving Russia into a corner. The threat in response to the American “No!” deploying Russian military infrastructure in Cuba and Venezuela already looks like a gesture of desperation. By using Ukraine as a bargaining chip, Russia has pushed Ukrainians even further into the arms of its rival. About 50 percent of Ukrainians are ready to resist the aggressor Russia, of which a third are ready to resist with weapons in their hands. And how to convince them now that we are one people with them?
