Political madness may be contagious. In 2014, in Ukraine, Putin tested the possibility of breaking the world order in his own interests.
An untreated disease has taken root
Unfortunately, then the civilized world did not react properly and did not begin to treat this disease in time. On February 24, 2022, the Russian dictator, seized with megalomania of geopolitical grandeur, entered a violent phase.
His bestial cruelty became a threat not only to Ukraine, but also to many other countries of the world. Instead of the force of international law, he promotes the law of force. And this approach to international relations and its neighbors seems to be becoming contagious in influencing at least some of Russia's political and ideological partners.
The only way to stop the Russian contagion
Both in Serbia regarding Kosovo and China in relation to Taiwan, there is a temptation to act in the same way as Russia – by the right of force. I hope that both Beijing and Belgrade will have enough prudence not to cross the red border.
After all, both China and the Balkans are well aware of the bloody cost of war. Moreover, the response of Ukraine and the international community to the Russian invasion of Ukraine showed that aggression will not go unpunished.
If the contagion of Russian geopolitical madness spreads around the world, then international chaos and global military-political confrontation, threatening the Third World War. Before it's too late, the Kremlin's virus of international aggression must be stopped. And there is only one way to do this – by inflicting a defeat on Russia on Ukrainian soil.
And for this, the civilized world must act more decisively – both in military resource support for Ukraine and in political and economic pressure on Russia.< /p>
