When Putin started the war, he tried to shift the blame to NATO, calling it the instigator.

But the world has never seen sanctions like this. Ironically, these sanctions may give Putin even more power.
Just as 9/11 dramatically changed the flow of history, resulting in two wars and hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of lives ruined, so too will Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
