Why is Putin Holding Back?

QUESTION: Hi,
I speak Polish. On Twitter, one Polish military guy remarked that on all those videos he can not see the most modern Russian equipment. This was unexpected as you would anticipate otherwise considering the character of rapid attack. Is Putin planning more than the Ukraine invasion? Or did he not expect the dogged resistance?

PP

ANSWER: It does not appear that Putin has sent in his hard-core troops. Only about 30% were sent into Ukraine. Nato has warned that if there is an attack on a NATO country, then they must respond. This seems to be a concern as to why he has committed so few troops to Ukraine why the major forces stand ready on the borders. Lost in all of this is the fact that Putin has also made a direct threat to Europe that if Sweden and Finland join NATO there will be “detrimental military and political consequences.” He has NOT committed the strategic forces to Ukraine so all the gloating by the Western Press seems to be fools trying to impress idiots. Russia & China combined will defeat the West. Someone needs to be muzzled.

Well, Gates will be happy. He will achieve his dream – depopulation of the world!
