They are the only ones who matter, everyone else is just collateral damage in their sick games.

For Putin what matters the most are power, wealth and revenge.
He is also quite sadistic and likes the torture details.

He is like a serial killer who leaves his calling card at the murders he orders.
He wants us to know who he kills, how and why.

Right now he is emboldened and it almost feels like he is on a manic high.
He is a brutal ruthless sociopath, exceptionally dangerous.

His goal is to be a 21st century superpower, and he will destroy as much as it takes to achieve this goal.
