EXPLAINER: WHY DID PUTIN INVADE UKRAINE (IN HIS OWN WORDS) [EPISODE 207]

March 8, 2022

I have been watching what has been going on in Ukraine and trying to understand it. I think I have a good grasp of the situation, including Putin’s motivation for invading the Ukraine. Is Putin crazy? I think there is more to the story. He is not nuts. Is he trying to reestablish the Soviet Union? Not exactly. Putin thinks differently. Once you understand him, you will understand his actions.

In this episode, I will review his speech of 24 February, 2022. It gives us great insight into his state of mind.

I also have found this YouTube video (Why is Russia Invading Ukraine) to be useful:

The 2022 book, Putin’s Playbook by Rebekah Koffler, has also helped me process Putin and his leadership.

Putin is not deranged. It is worse than that.
