It’s about much more than just the fact that the Russian army has positioned itself against the Ukrainian military. The Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz said: „War is the continuation of politics by other means“. Politically, this war is about the reasons for Russia’s „special operation“. The West was not ready to hold serious talks with the Kremlin about the origins and development of the conflict. Putin’s hand was rejected. The consequences for Europe and the USA will be dramatic. Russia will win this meta-political and earthly war. The West is slowly beginning to realize this reality.
