Russia Stands Alone

As long as the EU countries (and the rest of the world) condemn them and hold the line Russia will fail. Sure they can veto UN Security Council resolutions but in reality they’re in their own. Unlike Hitler who found allies in Italy and Japan I can’t see anyone publicly supporting him. Sure some countries may abstain in UN votes but I can’t see anyone actually actually voting in favor of this invasion.

Russia’s stock market already crashed 50% after the invasion. Now with removal from SWIFT and other sanctions they’re in for a hard time. While the Russian citizenry may buy the government line for a while “It’s the economy stupid” will eventually get Putin.
