Putins eureka Moment for the inspiration of his “Special Operation” In the Ukraine.
“How to fall flat on your face and carry on as if it was part of the plot!”
It looks like he hit an unexpected rough spot and then picked himself up and carried on. That's how the game is played.
It may be a good analogy for how Russia have been doing in the Ukraine war, but it may not necessarily be one that means everything is going to be fine.
Ukraine are in serious trouble and they will need major support both now and for many years after the war, however it may turn out in the end. We have to be prepared for the long haul and not lose interest when we don't see quick results.
