Putin on a Risk

Is Vladimir Putin starting another Cold War? It’s likely not that way. However, Putin does have dreams of the former Soviet Union. I think much of his aspiration involves making modern day Russia the USSR.

More tension grew this week in Ukraine as separatists and Russian nationalists remained sheltered in the eastern town of Donetsk. They are upset over the lack of legitimacy in the new Kiev government.

Still the majority of Ukrainians polled said they were against Russian rule in their home country.

With Putin’s aspirations though it is known by nobody how far he could go.
