This military adventure is and will increasingly continue to be a foreign policy disaster for Russia.
Ukraine is a country to 45 million people.
Every incursion into Ukraine's sovereignty is a waste of Russian resources and poisons Russian relations with its other neighbors.
Putin's head is in a noose of his own creation.
He can't withdraw without losing face and destroying the brutish self-image that he has worked so hard to construct.
And, invasion is doomed to failure and will greatly weaken Russia at home and internationally.

Now Putin thinking he will out tough the President decides to halt farm products being imported into Russia........OH oh.........that Harvard Law Review part time President Mr. Markle likes to show as lazy and dumb just outfoxed the fox. You see Russians kinda like their chicken and reasonable food prices.....so they are losing cold hard cash on their energy products and their citizens are being denied cheap food.......Checkmate........it looks like the russian's have become a country of checker players and brute force.

Sometimes, it takes the slow-witted some time to get the memo ....
.... but, he will get it.
