Whether Russian President Putin makes the decision to invade the country, and on a far larger scale, remains to be seen.

What we are being told by western media and warmongers is that there is a new and significant military build up on the Russian side of the border (while Ukraine President Zelensky said his intelligence officials, looking at satellite images, do not see such an unusual build up); diplomatic efforts have failed; and the West seems currently focused on warmongering, projecting solidarity, and threatening dire (economic, at least) consequences should an invasion occur.
