Damned if you do, damned if you don't. That is the situation for Putin with regards to the crisis in Ukraine right now.
As before, the blogger called “the Saker” describes Russia's choices in an excellent way.
What is going on is unbelievable. It is incomprehensible that the individual countries in Europe can support the genocide going in Eastern Ukraine.
Fascists from all over Europe are participating in it. Some even claiming support by their own governments (like, I am sorry to say, the sniper from Sweden active killing civilians and referring to Carl Bildt as his “sponsor”).
Below you can read the latest analysis by “the Saker”. Do share this. The horrors are too severe to be buried together with the people in Slavyansk, Kramatorsk and Mariupol.

The neo-Nazi junta in Kiev dramatically increases its efforts to provoke Russian into an intervention
As I have written a million times now – the junta in power in Kiev is doomed, Banderastan is not viable, the rump-Ukraine is in ruins and terminally broke and there is nobody in the West who can do anything about it. And I bet you that the Ukies know that. This is why from their point of view involving the Russians is vital as Russia is the *only* possible scapegoat on which they can blame it all. So now Russia has “cut off gas” and the Russian Foreign Minister has announced that he will “refuse to meet” with his “Ukrainian counterpart”. You know how the Ukie propaganda machine will present that? It will be something along these lines: For all our efforts to negotiate in good faith with the Moskals who are occupying our land and sending in terrorists to kill our people, the Kremlin imperialists have decided to use the “gas weapon” against our people. Worse, instead of thanking our Miniser of Foreign affairs who, at a great personal risk for himself, confronted a justifiably outraged crowed and calmed them down with some manly humor and thereby saved the Russian “diplomats” (who are really all FSB spies) from the righteous wrath of the people, they have now announced that they will refuse to meet with him. Yet again, the Moskals have shown that they belong to steppes of Asia and not into the community of civilized European nations.
The same applies here. All the Ukies need to do is escalate, escalate and escalate even further, and since no matter what they do the Psakis in the West will always whitewash it, approve it or even praise it, there is nothing holding the neo-Nazi junta back. This is a small except of what Juan wrote to me today: Kramatorsk as I write is being flattened, the entire city is under intense bombardment including Grad and Hurricane MLRS.
Everything, industrial areas, shopping areas, infrastructure areas, living areas, is being flattened.
We're going to have I think hundreds if not a thousand dead civilians.
Is this the atrocity needed to bring in Russia?
Yet. Two cities in Europe are turned into new Oradour-sur-Glane and nobody in the West gives a damn. Germany and France pass laws basically forbidding the honest historical research of the Nazi atrocities in WWII while at the same time not only denying, but pro-actively supporting Nazi atrocities in a country which they claim is part of Europe. How crazy can this get?!
So let's sum it up: The neo-Nazi junta in Kiev cannot survive and it knows it Uncle Sam is desperate to pull Russia into a military intervention The EU is was is delicately called a “punk ass bitch” in US jail So what are the Russian chances to not be provoked in this context? Pretty close to zero I think. The neo-Nazi junta in Kiev dramatically increases its efforts to provoke Russian into an intervention
