NATO can bury Russia and its shitty, import-dependent, non-producing economy. It is already happening as we speak - the salaries of Russian people have decreased by almost 10%. Hundreds are not getting paid and have left their jobs (late 1980s, ring a bell?). The idiocy of Russian politicians thinking their third-world level economy has some sort of leeway is what pushed the ruble into 80 a dollar (almost 300% devaluation, over the course of 9 months). There's no bargaining position for Putin. The only thing he has is a stockpile of old Soviet nuclear missiles. I wonder if his oligarch and FSB friends with Swiss accounts and Miami residences will allow him to use it.
