Vladimir Putin Seeks Retribution Against US and Western World Orde

In August 2013, a summer evening at a beachside nightclub in Sochi’s Black Sea resort was an electrifying experience. The mixed martial arts contest featured Russian fighters dominating against a “world” team, with scantily dressed women waving Russian flags and cheering them on. The crowd went wild as the home squad won battle after battle, reaching a peak when a 44-year-old American fighter was knocked out.

Unbeknownst to everyone at the time, this event would mark the beginning of Russia’s path to war. Six months later, President Vladimir Putin would seize Crimea from Ukraine, leading to a full-scale invasion that is now entering its third year next week.
