Sounds like Putin is taking a page from the Trump playbook.


"Mr. Putin, whose decision to mass 100,000 troops near the Ukrainian border precipitated the current diplomatic crisis, accused the United States of trying to goad his government into launching a conflict, in order to create a pretext for tougher Western sanctions against Russia."

This sounds like a classic Trump move. Examples that linger to this day:

- Crying "Stop the Steal!" while literally trying to steal the 2020 election.

- Making "Fake News!" a rallying cry after having directly benefiting from fake news leading up to the 2016 election.

- Taking credit for Covid 19 vaccine development after months of denying the virus's severity, and promoting alternatives WHILE it was rolling out.

Antony Blinken and the US diplomats are doing a masterful job behind the scenes to keep the pressure on Putin, and to let the world see the corner he's painted himself into.
