Excellent strategic analysis of Russia's Ukraine invasion

Geopolitical analysis is usually dry, and that’s the way I like it. Save the purple prose for history. Like everything else, media and government coverage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been 100% emotional, 0% reason.

Which makes this thoughtful analysis by Rodger Baker Stratfor a breath of fresh air. Baker injects actual thought into the mindless, passionate blather. https://worldview.stratfor.com/article/strategic-logic-and-political-ideology-rethinking-russias-invasion-ukraine
