Putin may soon face one of his worst strategic nightmares

April 26, 2022  •  Fox News

Despite over two months of trying to bloody and bomb Ukraine into submission to prevent its strategic drift to the west, Vladimir Putin may soon face one of his worst strategic nightmares: the NATO alliance he despises is about to get larger and stronger. And not a minute too soon.

If Biden's timidity led Putin to invade Ukraine, what about his next threat?

March 27, 2022  •  The Hill

President Biden's escalating sanctions and increased military aid for Ukraine, in response to Vladimir Putin's invasion, have crippled Russia's economy, strengthened Ukraine's resistance, unified NATO allies and prompted Europeans to rethink their security policies and increase defense spending.

But the horrendous price Ukrainians are paying has prompted questions about whether the U.S. and other democracies could have done more before the invasion to deter Putin, and whether Washington is doing enough even now to help Ukraine.

But while the prospect of nuclear meltdown has receded for now, Russian President Vladimir Putin's nuclear blackmail of Ukraine and the West continues.

The Zaporizhzhia plant, located in eastern Ukraine near the largely Russian-occupied Donbas, supplies 20 percent of Ukraine's power, providing electricity to some four million Ukrainian homes.
