I have shared a couple of similar views as to what is going on in Russia in the past few days but it doesn’t hurt, and in fact in this case it is positively helpful, to consider another one. The Saker, as usual, has useful advice and opinion to offer.
Whatever transpires from these events, I feel sure it will both be directly beneficial to Russia and indirectly to the wider world. How beneficial that is, we have to wait and see. Meanwhile it is fair to say that Western news and opinion can safely be completely disregarded.
There is no point in saying any more just now.
