As the war in Ukraine continues to not go well for Putin’s Russia he has resorted to things like Iranian drones and the use of some of Belarus in recent weeks.
Now reportedly even using some Afghan mercenaries too alongside the private army which continues to revolt against Putin:
Between different mercenaries not being paid nor seemingly willing to fight much longer, Putin is scraping the barrell.
That’s the truth of it.
He is also making Belarus a legitimate target.
And any other small amount of nations who indirectly are assisting him/not condemning his war – a target – economically.
