Putin’s insane expedition: the first year of the war in Ukraine
A year has now passed since the start of the war in Ukraine, and gradually we’ve gained more insight into Russia’s rationale for and handling of the war. The purpose of Han Bouwmeester is to build on the ‘What’s on Putin’s mind’ article published in the second issue of Atlantisch Perspectief last year. To this end, this article examines Putin’s forced isolation, Russia’s problematic approach to war and what consequences this has for NATO and its member states.
