This weekend I heard more than a few journalists natter on about Vladimir Putin and Russia having historical grievances after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union: several states in its sphere of influence joining NATO or leaning to the West, etc. Please. The nations with millions upon millions of people who were kept as communist slaves for 70 years have a few grievances of their own, and you can’t blame them for wanting to break free of Moscow’s “influence” after generations of brutality and dehumanizing by eager thugs such as Putin (who, we must not forget, was head of the KGB).
