The decision of russian President Vladimir putin to go to war with Ukraine will mean the beginning of the end of the putin era in russia. Co-chair of the European Council on Foreign Relations, Carl Bildt wrote in a Twitter post.
“If President putin decides to go to war with Ukraine it will be the decision that will define his presidency. The bitterness it will generate will shape generations. In the one way or the other, it will probably be the beginning of the end of the putin era in russia,” he wrote.
The Swedish politician also noted that it is very important now that the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission continues to work in Ukraine.
