Putin is probably afraid of losing his image as a strong man who has the Near Abroad under control, to be perceived as a regional power which can´t even contain Erdogan in the Russian backyard in the Caucasus. Central Asia and maybe Chechenia. Russia is now holding military maneuvers on the Caspian Sea and at the same time signals to the Trump-USA that it is interested in an extension of New Start in terms of limiting the upper numbers of ICBMs and preventing dead armaments by 1 year. The Trump USA rejects this for the time being, as they also want to limit China’s ICBM arsenals. The Armenians are now bringing the Caucasus War to the German streets and are occupying a German Autobahn/highway like the PKK and Extinction Rebellion before and catapult themselves into German media coverage. While Erdogan is attacking with Mesut Özil the German soccer nation for propaganda purposes, the Armenians are targeting the German Autonation and its beloved Autobahn/highways. But they should refrain from self-immolation like the Kurds, otherwise, BILD will be angry again. Meanwhile, Sputnik 5 is working – the number of new infections in Russia has exploded. But Putin can now take Trump as a role model, but please with a bare and naked torso on a horseback and with gas- Gerd without a mask and a safe distance in the men’s friendship sauna or cuddling with a Siberian tiger to play the invincible Man of Steel.
