How should the world sanction Putin’s Russia?
Next, and equally simply, the world’s democracies must sanction Putin’s Russia across the spectrum of economic activity: disconnection from the SWIFT system, a ban on dealing with every significant sector of the Russian economy, personal sanctions on high ranking government officials, senior military, and especially the oligarch class.
Who can stop this war in Russia?
There is, literally, nobody in Russia who can stop this war, because Putin has total control. The ostensibly elected parliament – the Duma and the Federation Council – is full of his placemen.
Will Russia respond to Putin’s warning not to interfere?
It would be good to start with his warning to the west not to interfere, because just as people like David Davis call for the west to provide air support to Ukraine, Putin had this to say: “Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history.
Is it time for the west to see Putin for what he is?
It is time for the West to see Putin for what he is: a serial violator of national borders who wants to unwind the international order and restore what he can of the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. What can the west do to stop him? How do we tear up the Putin playbook?
How will the sanctions on Russia affect the global economy?
Russian banks have been removed from SWIFT, the assets of Russia’s central bank have been frozen, the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline has been canceled, export controls have been levied and so on.

Is there more behind Putin’s confidence than military power?
But there may be more behind his confidence than military power or empty bravado. Over the past several years, Mr. Putin, Russia’s president, has restructured his country’s economy for the specific purpose of withstanding Western financial pressure. Russia has drastically reduced its use of dollars, and therefore Washington’s leverage.
What has Vladimir Putin learned from his time in power?
Mr. Putin has also learned how to keep Russia’s all-important political and business elite (who keep him in power the way that voters keep democratic leaders in power) loyal even under sanctions.
Will Russian oligarchs put pressure on Putin?
Russian oligarchs will not put pressure on Putin, not now and not anytime soon. They stay silent, even as they watch their assets and fortunes dwindle. We should have expected this.
