Thank you !

I especially find fascinating stories about how Putin is isolated and is being "lied to" by his advisors while we are to be convinced that CNN, MSNBC, Deutche Wella etc. coverage and YouTube videos are unavailable on his iPad in the Kremlin so he has to rely on just what his "advisers" tell him?

And then there is the "conventional wisdom" analysis that he and he alone is responsible for sending a nuclear powered nation into conflict with NATO just because " he is delusional and wants to be the last Russian Tzar" ! (so let's just assassinate him, problem solved!)

And the one where NO ONE in Russian government, military or intelligence apparatus suspected the "fierce opposition they suddenly encountered" from a foe they have been fighting since 2014?

Are we to believe that the FSB had no spies in the Ukranian government or military?

Puhlease!
