3 thoughts on “The Ukraine War: “Russia Is Becoming Poorer and More Backward” – DER SPIEGEL”

  1. Thanks, Ned, for this excellent article!
    I scrolled down and read several more DER SPIEGEL articles and “The Russian Patient – How Much Blame Does Society Bear for Putin’s War Crimes? ” was stunning.
    It ended with this:
    “I think Putin, in his own way, fits perfectly with the times. In the same way that Donald Trump and Xi Jinping fit in with the times.
    No, Ukraine is not about geo-strategy. It’s about definitions. Will we live in a world where black can mean white?”
